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 [email protected].
