the life and adventures of mr sloto

An explosive entry

“The time has come!” shrieked Mr. Sloto as he ran through the campus of Caltech. “I’m going to be a father!”.

He sprinted as fast as he could to the new Robotics Department at the prestigious university. There, a group of leading scientists with the help of Victor Fluke, would deliver the first “robobaby”, as they were calling it. Mrs. Sloto had entered the final stages of her robo-pregnancy and it was only a matter of time before they could see their newborn baby.

Mr. Sloto ran into Victor Fluke in the hall leading up to the delivery room. “How’s it going?” asked Mr. Sloto. Victor looked a bit agitated and worried. Mr. Sloto immediately got concerned and stated vehemently: “What’s happening!?”

Victor looked at his watch and then up to Mr. Sloto’s eyes. “I don’t have a lot of time. We encountered something strange in our data readings. It appears like…” Victor could not speak and ran down the hall.

Mr. Sloto entered the delivery room where specialists were all crowded around Mrs. Sloto. He overheard them say:

“The last solar flare might have changed the robo-genes of the baby. It has mutated in the robotic womb. If these readings are correct, this robot baby may turn radioactive the moment it comes in contact with oxygen, potentially killing everything within a 5-mile radius.”

Mr. Sloto could not believe his ears. Was he going to have an atomic bomb as a baby?!

This is an interactive series. Players get to vote on that next chapter of the story!


1st option) Mr. and Mrs. Sloto’s robobaby is born just as Victor Fluke enters the delivery room with a solution to defuse the radioactivity.

2nd option) Caltech scientists decide they must place Mrs. Sloto and the robobaby in an anti-radioactive chamber, where they will both be melted down. 

3rd option) Mr. Sloto is connected to a quantum computer to run his random number generator and determine the probabilities that the robobaby will become radioactive.
