Computers, and therefore robots, communicate using the simple language of binary - a series of 1s and 0s arranged in a universally-accepted code. In roboworld™, binary is highlighted by a series of flashing lights presenting the code for Isaac Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics.

Asimov, one of the earliest and most prolific science fiction and fantasy writers, created these laws to govern a fictional world where robots and humans live side by side. In roboworld™, robots and humans mingle, bathed in the glow of the Three Laws of Robotics:

  • A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  • A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  • A robot must protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
