Ever had an idea for a sweet robot? Ever wished Skynet was real? Well, here, you can fantasize away.
A new viral website has come around and it’s built to be the official website for Skynet, the corporation behind creating the deadly robots responsible for Judgment Day in the Terminator movies, including the upcoming Terminator Salvation.
The website looks like your basic, professional company website where you can go and read about who they are and what they do. One cool feature is the ability to submit ideas for robot designs. Another feature is that you can join Skynet — they ask a bunch of questions and send you a confirmation e-mail, but I’m not completely sure what happens after that yet. I’m still waiting for my first e-mail. Likely just some sort of newsletter, but I’m honored to be a member of Skynet.
Click over for info on submitting your ideas.
I can’t say I know if only the best ideas submitted will be featured on the website, or maybe the baddest ass ones submitted will be thrown into the “concept art” pile for the next two Terminator movies, but hell, if you have some ideas, have at it.
Here’s the Skynet robot idea submission information. Go to the official site and to “Outreach” for more.
CALL FOR ROBOT DESIGNS
Do robots interest you? Do you think about how robots might be designed and engineered to be all they can be? Have you ever wanted to design a robot to help humanity?
