If you want to become a robot, prepare to be zapped!

Generally in stories where someone is turned into a robot, it involves one of two methods. The trendy, and more modern method, generally involves an injection of specially created nanites, that work on the human mind, and body, turning someone from flesh and bones, into metal, and circuitry. As far as I know, currently, said nanites only exist in fictional works, though agreed, if they did, it would probably be the most effective way of transforming someone.

The other popular method used for said transformation, and which always the one used in the classic movies of the past, involves the use of electricity, to transform said person. Back in the B Movies, this was also used for creating all sorts of monsters as well. And yes, I’d be remiss if I didnt mention that amazing scene in Metropolis, at this point. Technically, that wasnt so much a robotization, as a mental download into a robot body, as Maria was, err, well relatively fine, afterwards! Mind, it gives the impression that quite a lot of electrical activity might have been passing through her mind to create this!

But in things like the Bride of Frankenstein and the like, then the whole body gets quite a delicious amount of electricity through her whole self. Yes, fine, I might enjoy that experience.

Of course, strictly, in the real world, that much electricity passing through the human mind, and body, tends to be fatal. Of course, in theory, I guess that the idea is that you become a robot before that moment kicks in, and of course robots love to be charged up by a good dose of electricity! Sometimes of course, those nanites get activated by said charge of electricity, which gets around the death issue, I guess, as the body has been adapted to enjoy that effect. How either of these option work in reality, who knows at present, as its beyond the realms of current technology, as far as I know?

Of course, back then, and indeed, until recent times, electricity was actually used to kill people, the good old electric chair! For an article re this, follow the link at http://weburbanist.com/2011/03/20/old-sparky-the-shocking-history-of-the-electric-chair/ to discover more. Oh fine, I’d love to sit in one of those chairs, and be connected up as they were, though ideally while the mains leading to the chair is very much switched off! Fine, I might not say no, if it wasnt connected up, but I know which I would prefer!

The only electric chair I’ve actually had close contact with, was many years ago, in an amusement arcade. Yes, thats right, an electric chair in an amusement arcade. No, it wasnt real, just a seat that you sat in, put your head into the cap, and placed your hands on the two metal bars, and got shocked! No, not really, as far as I can tell, though it definitely made your hands tingle. But given the vibration in the bars, I assume it was a device, and not real electricity. Anyway, what happened was, the vibration just got stronger, and stronger, until your hand came off, that broke the ‘circuit’ and you got your reading.

I assume none of these machines still exist, but if someone knows one that does, I’d love to do it again, believe me! No, sadly, I cant remember what they were actually called. Equally, I have no idea if they were only a UK, or a worldwide thing.

But yes, one of those, or something even more inventive, then yes, I’d love to, and I wouldnt mind electricity actually being used, err, relatively safely, on me! So if you want to do that to me, let me know, please!

Right, video time. You could say the group are apt, for this blog, and you could say this might be where you end up, after the electricity has finished you off. Unless of course, that electrical charge has turned you into a robot…bleep

To be like a robot!

OK, if you thought you were going to get a boring birthday post, sorry, I’ll disappoint you. But given that most of the popular (even years on) threads on here seem to involve brainwashing, robotization, and the like, this might please some.

Recently, I’ve been a wicked woman, and started reading a few mm sex stories, even if that sort of sex holds even less interest for me, than anything involving women. Which lets face it, with my love of sex…rolls eyes! I’ve picked on a few that play to my personal perves, and just hoped (successfully) that they didnt get too robust with the sex, which thankfully, they havent. One author who has taken my eye of late, is The Guardsman. Stories at,

http://192.155.80.152/Authors/theguardsman.html

These I can love for so many reasons. Not only do the men get to wear rubber clothing, as their normal garb, they also get to wear armor, with a visor over their faces, for complete dehumanization at times. To add to that effect, they dont have names, only numbers, once transformed. So yes, no identity, armor bodies, just like, err, robots! And yes, they even get controlled by an AI on top of all that!

OK, fine, big snag for me, that you will have noticed, this delicious treatment is handed out to men only! Well yes, I guess thats likely to be the case, if thats your preference in life, guys? I must admit, the previous time I wrote to someone about their methods, and adapting it for women, he explained that idea held no interest for him, not that I was totally surprised to be honest, but anyway. It involved, err, extracting cum from men, by a rather delightful piece of technology, I must say. If you want to read his stuff, its at

So, when I wrote to the Guardsman, making the same suggestions about adapting it for women, I was expecting much the same reply. Wrong, I’ve got into quite a session of emails about the subject, though to be honest, most of it would leave the women in a very butch manner, if not more manly than that! So no, ideally I’d pass on the mastectomy, and the stuff, and head shaving wouldnt be my first choice either, but…robots, especially like Maria dont have hair, so just maybe…? Would I do it? Yes, probably, though I’d wince at the genital mutilation, and mastectomy, I suspect. The hair shaving, oh, at a push…Well, most people think of lesbians prototypically with cropped hair, dont they? Yes, because I’d look like, and be controlled like a robot, and be nothing more than a number!

Fine, despite talk otherwise, sadly, its not for real, because if it was, especially at present, I’d do it!

Right, video time. This video, I have to thank a fellow author for discovering, she being Tabico. It has some great outfits, looks like something out of Metropolis (though it isnt), or some crazed 30’s film! Oh, and a little bit of electricity, too. The music isnt my thing, but the video sure is!

Inspiring fashion – a robot?

This article is actually a couple of years old, but someone posted a link to it on Facebook today, and it was certainly the first time I’d seen it, so…it might amuse some, especially me!

http://www.theguardian.com/fashion/fashion-blog/2012/feb/27/metropolis-inspires-the-fashion-world

And no, I know I dont live in one of the fashion centres of the world, but I havent seen any ladies walking down the street dressed like that! Hey, if I had, I would have been extremely jealous! In all truth, I suspect any outfits that got beyond the drawing board (or the fashion shows, where some love to shock) were very tame compared to that lol!

But hey, if any of those designers want to create an outfit just like that, and they want someone to wear it, I would most definitely volunteer! And no, sitting me in a chair, encircling me in high voltage electric rings is purely optional, though I wouldnt say no in the slightest. Hey, if you really want, you can wire me up like in that chair, but…might be a shade dangerous lol! Twist my arm though…

Hey, at my age, wearing a suit like that might be a good (or only) way for me to break into movies!

OK, fine, I’d still rather wear ‘that dress’ from Dinner At Eight, but this would seriously run it a very close second.

But yes, young ladies, out in the street, in a full robot suit, I cant see it happening just yet…sadly.

The video, well, a fairly obvious Bowie one, under the circumstances

The first female robot?

Yes, we are talking Maria in Metropolis, some are probably only surprised its taken me this long to get here! In a sense, so am I lol!

One thing is for certain, she wasnt the first to be described as a robot, Capek certainly mentions them several years beforehand in R.U.R (Czech play), though I suspect as they were factory workers, they were all male back then. Plus, thats used more as a derogatory term for workers, not strictly anyone turned into a robot per se.

But then again, when you think about it, Maria as such wasnt really turned into a robot either! To be strictly correct, Rotwang has created a metal robot (though the body was actually some form of wood), and its more a case of he mentally downloads Maria’s mind into the robot body, and it somehow transforms into a mirror image of her. Of course, as any film buff knows, it doesnt all go to plan from there as the robot ends up only causing more chaos amongst the lowly workers of Metropolis. But all the same, its generally regarded as a transformation, even though later in the film the real Maria appears intact, both mentally and physically, and helps to save the day, even confronting her robot self at one point.

So it could be said, that mentally Maria was the first robot, though it was more strictly replicant in all honesty than a true robot. But all the same, whether you call it robotisation, transformation, or just mental download, its an amazing scene, especially with the rings of electricity, given there was no CGI or anything back in those days! I suspect it wasnt real electricity, but I wouldnt put anything past Fritz Lang in all honesty.

As a concept, of transformation, mental download or whatever, I find it all very hot, and would love to replicate it sometime from within that magical box, tube or whatever that Maria is placed into. Its all the more incredible when you think this film was made about 85 years ago!

I’ve managed to find what is literally just the transformation scene on You Tube, which will cut down on the viewing time for some. To paraphrase a Bonnie Tyler song, ‘I’m holding out for a Rotwang’ lol! Would love to fond his ancestor! 😉
