WHAT IS THE G.R.L.?
The Global Robotics Laboratory (also known as the G.R.L.) is a sprawling complex of buildings on a volcano-powered island. It is home to the most advanced robots in the world. The scientists at the G.R.L. are constantly developing ways to better communicate with humans through futuristic technologies.
WHERE IS THE G.R.L. LOCATED?
The Global Robotics Laboratory is located on an island somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean. Its exact location is unknown to the world. The G.R.L. is part of a group of unique islands, each with its own inhabitants.
WHEN WAS THE G.R.L. BUILT?
The G.R.L. was founded at least 30 years ago by the secretive multi-billionaire Maximillian DeVega.
WHAT IS PROJECT MOXIE?
Project Moxie is a program that pairs a robot ambassador from the G.R.L. with a human mentor. Robot mentors have the awesome responsibility of teaching their robot ambassador how to be a good friend to humans. Robot ambassadors report their findings to the G.R.L., and the information they supply helps guide the next generation of ambassadors!
WHAT IS A G.R.L. ROBOT AMBASSADOR?
A robot ambassador is a marvel of technology, constructed as part of Project Moxie, and ready to learn from Robot Mentors how to be a good friend to humans.
WHAT IS A G.R.L. ROBOT MENTOR?
A G.R.L. Robot Mentor is someone who has taken the Robot Mentor Pledge and is ready to teach a robot what it means to be a good friend to humans.
WHO IS “Z”?
In robotic circles, Dr. Zarcona Wilde, also known as Z, has a reputation that cannot be surpassed. She is known as a maverick in the field; recruited at the age of 15 to attend the prestigious WIRT Academy. Zarcona is an out-of-the-box thinker and passionate about making robots to help the future of humankind.
WHO IS KNOX?
Knox is the very first Project Moxie mentor. While he lives on a nearby Island with his family, he spends a lot of time at the G.R.L., visiting his grandfather, Kumana.
His Grandfather, Kumana has a long association with Maximillian DeVega which has allowed him special access to the secretive organization.
WHO IS HAL TURING?
Hal Turing is a professor at WIRT (the World Institute of Robotic Technology). DeVega recruited Turing to work for the G.R.L. with the promise of access to a state-of-the-art nanotechnology facility. By the time mentors are chosen for Project Moxie, Turing is nowhere to be seen.
HOW DO I CONTACT THE G.R.L.?
You can write the G.R.L. at Global Robotics Laboratory, P.O. Box 551, Pasadena, CA 91102.
WHERE CAN I APPLY TO BE A G.R.L. ROBOT MENTOR?
A parent or caretaker can sponsor a child to be a Robot Mentor through a special app.
WHAT IS EMBODIED, INC.?
Embodied, Inc. is the robotics company that powers the underlying technology behind the G.R.L. Unlike the Global Robotics Laboratory, its location is well known to be in Pasadena, California.
