Gen-2 Robots

The Gen-2 series saw the rise of less humanoid robots. These are a little more industrial than the Gen-1 series, meant to look more heavy-duty.

Bit

Bit was the first, the crossover between the Gen-1s and 2s.

Bit’s main feature is that he has an integrated power, CPU and sensory core in his chest, so has no ‘head’ to speak of (forgive the pun). As such, his shoulders are lower set. He’s still bipedal and roughly humanoid, but more ruggedised than the Gen-1s.

Yellow

The aptly-named Yellow is a heavy-duty lifting robot and represents the first of the tilted-walk robots. He again has the same centralised core structure as bit, with a venting port at the top for coping with excessive activity.

Scout

The progression of Yellow is Scout. He is designed for long distance tracking, rescue or exploration. He too has tilted-walk locomotion and features extra suspension on his knees for manoeuvrability and tackling rough terrain. He also 4 has multifunction arms for dealing with tricky, unexpected situations. Overall, he is designed to be drone-like, with a more futuristic military vibe.

War-bots

Well, with any military contractor comes the secret in-house experiments and research. Using technologies stolen from Scout, Strat Inc. based in Asimov City built heavy-duty war robots. The company was eventually shut down, but not before having built three prototypes from Gen-2 technology and experimenting with reproducing Dalek technology (as featured on Instagram here – more on that in a later post).

Foot Drones

Strat Inc.’s foot-drones can be seen below.

The foot drones are agile and expendable. Each has two multifunction arms similar to those on Scout. The also possess the tilted-walk configuration. However, these robots are each equipped with a plasma cannon mounted to the right-hand side and interchangeable power clip on the left. In addition, the drones sensory equipment is beefier and shielded at the front.

Goliath

The Goliath is the more formidable of the war robots. It’s massive structure allows for heavy artillery including quad RPG launcher and dual plasma cannons on the left, then directional EMP generator on the right. Finally, two flame throwers on the lower front deal with anything that gets too close.

The sensory equipment (front, centre) is similar to Scouts and so is far less sophisticated than the drones’. Let’s be honest, this thing’s not meant for subtlety or surgical precision.

To move, the Goliath is tripod-based with dual generators for power, each with a dedicated venting port at the top. Overall, the robot had a smooth, black finish on the upper section, but jagged anti-scaling structures around the legs. Plus, the jaggedness just makes it look meaner!
