Amid insipid articles on Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day (fluffy!), the Bloody Mary (spicy!) and a repeat feature on George Rodrigues NOMA exhibit (from dogging to doting in one week flat!), todays Times-Picayune Lagniappe insert proffered this intriguing tidbit: Some enterprising film company saw fit to celluloid-ize Robosapien, and auditions for the upcoming New Orleans shoot will be held next Friday, March 14. Robosapien, you may know (provided youre sub-5 feet tall and possess a Y chromosome), is the flagship product of WowWee, a consumer electronics company specializing in robot design. Its inventor, Mark Tilden, is a former physicist for NASA whose applied principles in biomorphic robotics allow the 24-inch feller to perform a virtual acrobatics act fluid motions, gestures, walking, turning, the works. (He can even speak, belch and flatulate at random, making him not unlike his target demographic.) Before visions of a climactic, albeit miniaturized, Cloverfield-style climax begin dancing in any heads faulty wiring causes Robosapien to take out an unsuspecting family of nutrias! it should be said that the picture is billed as a beautiful family feature film about a boy who finds a robot and the adventures they have together. Groan. Maybe the sight of all those damn inscrutable blue dogs around town will set him off. Hey, it works for art critics.
