*the nurse robot than gets up and runs into her clothing chamber and selects her nurse outfit. Runs down to her office and sees the mess of tools and metal scraps. She grabs what seems to be a cube off of her desk and then arm sweeps the rest of the mess to one side of the desk and sighs.

Scene cuts to within in the Robot Academy

 

Robot 1: *talking to friend* Hey, 32 It has been a minute, you still in P.E?

 

Robot 32: Of course not, all we do is stand in the syndicator and they test our joints. *Click*

 

Robot 132: *Over intercom* Welcome back students, class is starting 2 minutes. I repeat class is starting in 2 minutes.

 

Robot 32: Well, I gotta go, Robot 1003 is strict about being on time. Says she’s got like an internal clock or something weird like that.

 

Robot 1: Bye, 32

 

*heads into P.E.* Scene: Now in the gym where a row of chambers are in the back and background robots are seen doing various activities like throwing a ball, running, or jumping.

 

Robot 54: Robots!! Listen up if you’re an even number, head to the syndicator! If you’re an odd number pick an activity to do. *starts to walk away to sit in chair, but turns around* Also, no throwing the balls hard, we had to patch up three holes last time.

 

Robot 1: *Sighs and grabs a ball*  *throws ball straight up into the air, but they don’t catch it and it hits them right in the face*

 

Robot 67: *Laughs* Hey look, 1 can’t even catch the ball

 

Robot 1: *Stares at their hands* *sees a system warning in its eyes*

 

System Warning: Power insufficient

 

Robot 1: No, no, no. I swear I charged up yesterday. *tries to step toward gym teacher, but falls out*

 

Scene: inside a robot infirmary  

 

Robot 1: *groggily* What happened

 

Nurse Robot: Hello robot 1, you died in gym class today

 

Robot 1: What?!?!

 

Nurse Robot: Your battery…….it died in gym class today.

 

Robot 1: *sighs in relief*

 

Nurse Robot: As you know, the main charging stations do not refill themselves until 1:00. So, I have given you an experiment device I have been working on

 

Robot 1: experiment device? No, no. I’m not an experiment robot. *says concerned*

Nurse Robot: Oh goodness no. I know that; this is something I’ve been working on to hopefully further our technolog-

 

Robot 1: But there have been no technology developments in years, we are in our climax

 

Nurse Robot: And yet here you are talking to me, perfectly powered up. Go ahead take a look at your battery logs.

 

Robot 1: *battery logs read that they are fully charged and still charging* Impossible how am I charging *starts looking around for plug on their back*

 

Nurse Robot: *laughs* That is my invention. I call it WigL. It will allow for a seamless flow of power at all times. Robots will never again have to plug up at 1:00 every day.

 

Robot 1: incredible. Why haven’t you released it to the public?

 

Nurse Robot: Oh, I have, but you know how the technological office is. They get faulty “new” inventions all the times. It may be years before they even decide to take a look at my submission.

 

Robot 1: *With enthusiasm* We need to go now, the robots must her able this.

 

Nurse Robot: I admire your enthusiasm really, but what will the school board think if I pull a student out of school just to try, and I heavily emphasize try, to approve an invention I came up with in my back data drives. I may have possibly just invented something huge, but I still need this job.

 

Robot 1: But please, this could be really huge. I mean I could at home right now waiting to charge up and getting ready to hear my mother’s 2-hour lecture on why I should never forget to power up. But instead I am able to continue my day and mostly importantly not have to hear my mother’s lecture

 

Nurse Robot: That is true, though you may still be hearing your mother’s lecture. I do have to notify home when a student is sent to the infirmary on something serious.

 

Robot 1: *sighs*

 

Nurse Robot: *smiles* how about I promise you this. You remember to charge up from now on and tonight I will go technological office and demand my invention be seen. *reaches out hand for a handshake* Deal?

 

Robot 1: *Smiles and shakes hand* Deal.

 

Next Scene: Weeks later, Robot 1 is sitting down in the living room watching tv

News Robot: Breaking news, a new invention has been reviewed and approved. This invention could quite possibly change our society for forever. It is called WigL and it allows for wireless power everywhere. No more charging stations or cords. I look forward to seeing what it can. We now head to News Robot 87.

 

Robot 1: *Smiles at TV and scene fades out*
