As we enter an age of renewably-powered, driverless automobiles, the question arises: what do we do with the estimated 1.5 billion cars in the world today?
Imagine a not-too-distant future where a new civilisation rises from our post-industrial debris. Over at Cockle Bay, mind-boggling electro-automotive super-bots have been sent to sow the seeds of a brighter, greener tomorrow.
Epic in scale, Robot SPACELand takes over Darling Harbour. Its centrepiece is a 16m tall mechatronic unit called Ecobot whose primary purpose is to save Earth from extinction and advance a sustainable existence. After assembling itself from crushed cars, Ecobot continues its endless duties crushing and processing old vehicles to extract precious metals and form the building blocks of a new society.
Under Ecobot’s leadership is a band of sentient robots busy repurposing recycled cars and industrial junk into Tree 1.0 to generate alternative landscapes of organic beauty from the wasteland.
The rugged all-terrain TerraScorp terraforms habitable havens. This construction bot remodels compromised environments and plants nutrient-rich seedlings to nurture new life.
Truth Seeker turns its eyes to the skies, raking the galaxies for intelligence that will help preserve our planet – and us.
On Evolution Island, worker bots labour ceaselessly to convert any remaining industrial waste into lush foliage and atmosphere-replenishing rainforest flora. Help them succeed in their mission to restore the Earth.
