We built a spider-shaped robot and installed an artificial intelligence capable of learning.
Combining human-level problem solving with the strength and maneuverability of a robotic spider, it would be ideal for search-and-rescue and peace-keeping functions. We trained it on superhero comics to give it a sense of responsibility, and we painted its fuselage in primary colors to make it less threatening.
The project was going well until the spider-bot disappeared. It left a note in synthetic webbing explaining that it had gone to New York to follow in the footsteps of its hero. It was going to become a photojournalist.
