you’ll have to pardon me while i wax anthropomorhpic for a moment. why is it that robots, designed or imagined, always exist solely to fulfill a purpose or pleasure for human beings? don’t they have feelings too? maybe it’s about time we made some robots whose sole purpose is to hook up with other robots, get a little freaky, and make some robot progeny.

in this article we’ll be exploring robot love. i made a couple of simple lego mindstorms robots and programmed them to reproduce — i.e. they can swap code. effectively, two robots come together, trade their genome, die, and two new robots are born in their place.

turn up the barry white. get our your mindstorms. let’s get it on.
