Jackbot

Jackbot

Jackbot is the best friend-bot a kid could want. Go skateboarding or fishing with him. He is always there for you—well, unless someone messes with his programming. Be careful when you give him commands—he may not always react the way you expect him to.

The Caretaker

The Caretaker

The Caretaker is TinkerTech’s newest model—still in beta testing. It can open any door in existence. Its sensors alert it to any cleaning job that needs doing throughout the building, and it responds immediately. It doubles as a security guard—it’s programmed to arrest any intruder, and its eyes record every infraction into a data file. It is excellent at enforcing school rules—and it can even initiate an ear pinch.
