Somewhere in a far-off and barren planet, a small but industrious mining robot is looking for precious minerals, all alone with its helper. And then suddenly, in this seemingly desolate land, an unexpected encounter with a much larger mining excavator will give birth to a fruitful alliance. But the transparent and phosphorescent crystals are sparse, and sometimes, even an automaton could be tainted by greed. —Nick Riganas
Good Old Selfishness
Two robotic devices are part of a mining operation. At first they butt their robotic heads, competing over what was available. The little guy, however, has a kind of infrared ability to discover the green minerals they are after. So when they work together, the big guy crushes the rock and the little one extracts the minerals. The problem is that even between machines, apparently there is greed; and that is what proves an undoing.
