Gymbot, let me introduce you to the hammer I keep under the cushions
Yanko Design (The DREADCO of the design world) tackles obesity with Gymbot; a robot personal trainer that orders you off the couch for a round of calisthenics whenever you look like you might be enjoying yourself.

It's targeted at Outer Party members who don't have telescreens yet.

It's more likely to "evolve" into a police 'bot, as in "Magnus; Robot Fighter".

It will walk through your front door (without bothering to open it first), grab you by the shirt-collar, and bellow, "STAND UP CITIZEN, YOU ARE UNDER ARREST!!"

If you ask it why, it will taser you, and after cuffing you say, "THAT IS ON A NEED TO KNOW BASIS, AND YOU DO NOT!"

Meanwhile, some Inner Party member Feliks Dzerzhinsky wannabee will be cackling insanely in his mom's basement. Or maybe the basement of the White House.

As was once observed in an RPG sourcebook, robots are great minions for budding Evil Geniuses because they never disobey, do tot question orders, and rarely if ever form unions.

Plus, let's face it, they just look cool.

I'm not so sure I'd want an army of exer-bots for minions. Working with computers, I know there's just too much that can go wrong. No, I'm thinking more in the direction of Mutated Micono-Men (that's mushroom people, for all my future subjects) when I'm done closing on that island lair. I am assured by the manufacturer that they are easy to grow in a warm chamber under the volcano with just a bottle of spores and a pile of Congress's latest output, and if any misbehave, they're always tasty sauteed with butter or as a side dish.

Meanwhile, at the Final Frontier:

The Replicator is here.

Another thing gone horribly right.
