Our first errant Fobot is “Damn Yankee”. He stands 11.5″ tall, and was last seen at Accipiter Gallery in Raleigh’s Cameron Village. He disappeared a few weeks ago, without first stopping by the cash register to say goodbye. Not cool, people.
“Georgy Porgy’s” story is a little different. He’s the one with the opera glasses head, and was supposed to have been delivered via FedEx Home Delivery on December 17 to an address in Houston Texas. FedEx sent an email notifying that he had been delivered. Which he may have been, but not to the address he was supposed to arrive at. So either (a) the driver kept him, (b) he was delivered to the wrong address and THEY decided to keep him, or (c) someone stole him from the recipient’s porch–unlikely, as she was there all day, and no deliveries were made.
So, if you see these robots in someone’s home, let me know. I may not be able to get them back, but at least, if the current “owners” know that they’re in possession of stolen bots, they won’t be able to display them openly and introduce them to their friends. And really, if you can’t do that, what’s the point of having them?
