OsCorp Industries wants to usher in an age of robotics, and has pumped piles of cash into robotics research. My interview mission? Pry some secrets out of OsCorp’s Head Engineer, Spencer Smythe.
DB: Can you summarize your recent work in one word?
DB: Elaborate, please.
Smythe: If you wanted an elaborate answer, why did you ask for a single word?
DB: Tell me something no one else knows about your research.
Smythe: We have made significant breakthroughs in the field of manned flight technology, fluidity of movement, speed and dexterity evidenced by our larger robotic devices.
DB: Hardware or software?
Smythe: Both. One feeds the other. Better machines with enhanced artificial intelligence networks making informed, logical choices at greater speeds. Better bodies and better brains.
DB: And how do you see this being commercially applied?
Smythe (laughing): I don’t do marketing. Engineering innovation doesn’t result from a focus on revenue.
DB: There are rumors the NYPD is interested.
Smythe: Well, if you want to catch the right fly, you have to spin the right web.
DB: Very clever. One last thing, how is it working with your son?
Smythe: Alistair is a brilliant young engineer and I’m thrilled to see his career develop. I’d better watch my back or he’ll have my job before too long!
DB: Domo arigato.
I’m sick, but idfc. Make up makes me feel human again
Sick and tired but still beautiful… Some women just know how to do it
You know what would be amazing? If this fantastic woman became the next companion. Just an ordinary plain girl with asthma an 4s scarf. Just imagine her and Capaldi flying around time and space. No romance. No stupid banter. Just good. old fashioned. Fun.
If feel like she’d lose her inhaler a lot and then Capaldi would get into a lot of trouble trying to find it and eventually he’s just keep like ten inhalers in the TARDIS
Need this so badly.
SHE WAS MY FAVOURITE AND I LOVED HER BECAUSE SHE IS ME. SHE IS ALL OF US. ALL HAIL SCARFGIRL
HER NAME IS OSGOOD
I was actually expecting something of this sort when I saw her. Seems like they could totally set her up to be the fun, kiddie companion to the 12/13th’s Mature seriousness look
