Vandalist: Programmed to Love

The next phase of technology.

FIELD NOTES: As technology advances, so does our desire to make emotional connections with our electronics. From Siri to talking fridges to creepy robot sex partners, we’re well on our way to creating robots that can experience a whole range of emotions. Let’s just hope we learned our lesson from Skynet, and that we only create friendly, loveable automatons like R2-D2 or Bender.

Once a week, Vandalist features some of the most interesting street art and graffiti from around Toronto. Find something great? Email vandalist@torontoist.com.

    I saw a dude putting up what I think are these same stickers in Trinity Bellwoods in the late summer/fall. If it is the same person, he’s really trekking all over the place!

      He must be.

    I don’t think that Skynet was necessarily supposed to have emotions, or at least not the equivalent of human emotions.
