A glimpse into the future of our technological friends: The ROB 9000, waits for his family.

This animated short film is pretty short and very simple in its idea, yet very sweet and heartwarming. We follow the day of Robert, a small robot hanging sadly inside its house while waiting for its humans to come back home… You know, just like a common dog of ours. Even if nothing much happens, ROBERT THE ROBOT is really interesting for its great technique – everything looks so realistic and well-done – and also has perfect music matching the scenes. The short film manages to pass on the vibes of loneliness and to create empathy for a robot, as if Robert itself had feelings.
