I think it was Copernicus who said, “Haters gonna hate.” I mean, that is what defines them—hating. And you know what? Just because a bunch of strangers on the internet don’t like you spending all of your time making super crappy robots instead of things that might actually be useful, you don’t have to feel badly. Instead, all you have to do is awkwardly look them in the eye…err, camera…and tell them one thing: “Deal with it.”
Which is just what our burping Queen of Shitty Robots (First of Her Name) Simone Giertz did, or at least enlisted one of her androids to do. Giertze invented her very own “Deal with It” device, which, when controlled by a remote matching robotic arm sent to her by a fan, allows her to look super cool while lowering a pair of sunglasses onto her face (sometimes perfectly, like the popular internet GIF come to life).
Because nothing tells your haters you aren’t giving in to their complaints quite like wearing a robotic arm on the top of your head. Although, as she did point out, running a motor near a full head of long hair pretty much guarantees that at some point you will suffer some robotic hair pulling.
This was her first video filmed at the Tested office since she joined the team a few months ago, and she promises something very exciting next month. We’re sure some haters will find something to complain about with that one too, but we are pretty sure we know what she’ll say to them.
Where does the “Deal with It” device rank among your favorite crappy robots she has made? Tell us in the comments below.
