In the future, the problem of domestic chores will be solved by artificially intelligent cleaning droids, who become part of the family.
We created this short because we wanted to tell a short and moving story that pays tribute to the love of a family, albeit in a near future where little droids take care of our homes (and us). In the near future, the problem of domestic chores will be solved by artificially intelligent cleaning droids. Every home will have at least one. This short tells the story of an old cleaning droid - a ROB 9000 domestic model - as he passes a boring Tuesday alone in an empty house, waiting for his owners to return. By focusing on the robot’s self-awareness, loneliness and dog-like love of his owners, we have created a beautiful tone poem that makes people feel sympathy for a humble hunk of metal. We hope you like the short and are touched by the little metal character. Jonathan & Spencer
