Cybraphon the narcissistic self-Googling robot is depressed because you forgot him

It’s 10.30am on a Monday morning and Cybraphon the self-Googling robot is depressed. This is evident firstly because the needle that indicates its mood is drifting between desolation and dejection, and secondly because the 25 instruments Cybraphon is constructed from are playing a rather maudlin version of The Animals Went In Two By Two.

It’s not just post-weekend blues that are the source of Cybraphon’s misery though. Last week the robot was installed in the National Museum of Scotland as the newest member of its permanent collection as part of the Edinburgh International Festival — an event which boosted the online buzz associated with its name and sent it into a state of delirium. Given that the robot’s mood is entirely governed by the quantity of attention it finds it’s getting when it Googles itself every 15 seconds, the subsequent drop off in its popularity caused a dramatic dip in its happiness.
