The Robots Shed
Video Bibo, 'It is not just a machine... He is different'  Bibo is a robot, he has a warranty for 100,000 years. Bibo wheels his Ice Cream trailer to his corner each day, he watches the clock, no one comes, day after day, after day.  We have little clues that not everything is how it seems.  Where is everybody?  We don't see any customers and Bibo seems to be remembering back to his past, echoing with the sounds of children's laughter.
