Geek dad and friend of the blog Barry McWilliams is working on a fun and quirky art project which celebrates the last catalog from a fictional robotic flower delivery company: The Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots. The whimsical art style and the absurdity of the concept combine for a coffee table book perfect for any geek household.
It’s the company, started by Rhoderick R. Wrylon, that created and dominated the flower delivering robot market. He opened the doors of the first Wrylon Robotical delivery storefront in 1906 and the company thrived until 1913, when it mysteriously shuttered its doors. The ‘bots disappeared and it vanished from the face of the earth.
Barry’s already funded the project and introduced a few great stretch goals, including stickers and a Wrylon Robotical Engineering Department patch, so there’s even more bang for your botanical ‘bot buck. Get in on the Wrylon Robotical Illustrated Catalog of Botanical ‘Bots Kickstarter here.
