If the robot’s vision is based on the Kinect, shouldn’t it be all pixelated and misshapen?

I think the Xbox New-Zeke was built from red-ringed before Kinect was a thing; there’s nothing saying Kinect was apart of his design regardless. Besides, Kinect’s vision bathes everything in dots (invisible to human eyes), not pixels. The size and relative distance of these dots (big dots are close, small are far away) are what enables Kinect to track objects in 3D space.

Surprisingly it was used in a lot of applications outside of Xbox Games…Besides Xbox games as spatial awareness in cameras was being further developed.

I can imagine Zeke performing all the glory kills he can on Ethan once he’s set loose

This is a good point. Could Zeke deal with his homicidal urges simply by killing Ethan over and over again?

“Ugh I need to kill someone!”

“Ok…let me get the blood bucket…”

That would be hilarious if we see Zeke get free and repeatedly glory kills Ethan with the E1M1 song playing through his speakers while Lucas and Scott sit there eating popcorn and watching.

Afterwards, we’d see Zeke in a bed with Ethan’s dead body sitting there with a cigarette in his hand like he was there in post coitus. Then Ethan’s body would disappear and he would respawn later.

“morning” was true

58.82352941176471‬% would be more precise.
The statement is comprised of 17 letters
10 of those letters are inputs in the false results (GOOD + FRIEND)
The remaining 7 letters are inputs of a true result (MORNING)

Though, 66% is more realistic coming from Zeke. If he mimics human intelligence, it makes more sense to simplify the communication for efficiency, since exacting precision serves no function in this exchange. Actually… any exchange with Ethan.

Nonsense, the precise amount false in that statement is 50%.

There are only two combined syllables in GOOD + FRIEND, as opposed to the same count of two syllables in MORNING. Not sure why you’d count letters, a representation of phonetics in written form, when the statement is meant to be read as being spoken aloud by the character.

Half expected fore there to be a hardware reset switch behind there to reset his movement subroutines.

I see Zeke starting to like Etan because of his entertainment value

Is anyone else hearing a bit of James Spader’s Ultron when they read Zeke’s lines? Can’t un-hear…

I’m imagining somewhere between the two. Closer to VEGA from the recent DOOM games.

Careful there Zeke, allowing Ethan of all people to get within arms reach of you is just Asking for trouble. Accidental to be sure, but trouble none the less.

Haha, now that’s a funny joke. Ethan could break the unbreakable.

Also, filthy monkey might shed on clean robot.

At least he’s gone from “How do I kill you” to “How do I entertain myself by making you do stupid things”

Awww Ethan’s growing on him. Since it’s a robot, it would have used 2/3 for accuracy, which means it only found 66% instead of 66.666…7%, which could mean that he’s starting to view Ethan as a friend.
