I never have and never will understand the use of cardboard boxes as a way of displaying the feel of being a robot. Even in old episodes of Star Trek I felt that crappy boxes were used. But at least those boxes were spray painted or something.
I mean I understand that a robot may have some square element to it hence using a box, but when we don’t even decorate the boxes? When we give no feel whatsoever that this is supposed to be a robot we’re dealing with?
Well then you just have a bunch of idiots wearing boxes
