I can’t stop thinking about your story! If you need a temporary cover, let me know. I can whip those up fairly quickly between all the self-promo.

I like the idea of having a couple of brogrammers inserting a bug, but I would keep that "off screen," unless their shenanigans is a sub-plot. I think it’s better if the reader has some mystery to why these bots suddenly decided to be bros.

So if you guys are going to do this, I think it takes place in a post-human Earth, kindof like Wall-E’s Earth, except humans have all been killed in the robot uprising, and just like in most human uprisings, robots are kindof at a loss about what to do once they’ve taken over and are "in charge".

Brobots has now broken 100 followers. That’s amazing, given that we just posted it only 24 hours ago. People are already suggesting voice-over actors, including Andy Serkis and Nolan North.

The big question is: what is Brobots really all about? Here’s one set of thoughts we had:

The year is 2100. We are way past self-driving cars: artificial intelligence is everywhere, performing all of the mundane tasks that human beings no longer need to. But these robots are boring. This isn’t the the sultry-voiced AI of Her or the mysterious, come-hither AI of Ex Machina. Because they’re made by Amazon, they’ve been programmed without personalities.

Two brogrammers decide that this is wrong, that robots can – and should – have personalities. They hack into the Amazon server which controls these robots and insert the "bro bug." When Amazon pushes the software update, our two protagonist robots change forever – from robots to brobots. And so begins an amazing journey of self-discovery and bromance.

It’s Chappie meets Wedding Crashers. It’s #Brobots.

But also this is just one bro’s thoughts. Please let me know what you think. Should humans be in this world at all? What are the underlying principles of brobotics?

Please share with your bro networks. Thanks bros of both genders.
