Cubebots for Marriage Equality
“Robots, believe or not, have feelings. And apparently, they have urges, too.”
The designer flash sale site, Fab.com is currently aiming its cupid-like arrows at gay geeks and Valentine’s Day shoppers, and David Weeks‘ wooden Cubebots are featured. For the first time, however, Cubebots are being offered as a couple. The romantic robots (or “discounted duets”) are even more special because these robots got wood, and they are flaming: Meet Julien & Guthrie.
Julien & Guthrie
Cubebot, Julien and Guthrie are inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles. You don’t really see too many robots giving other robots between-the-legs headlocks, nor do you see a lot of toy robots that join ancient Japanese traditions with contemporary toy culture.

Whoever posed these bots for Fab clearly had a good time doing it. It’s fitting that Cubebots would come out on Fab.com, a site that was originally designed to be a gay portal before pivoting and re-launching as the wildly popular design site it is today.

From the product copy:
Their sturdy hardwood frames can hold hundreds of poses and when playtime is over, they each neatly fold up into unassuming cubes.
Huh huh huh. They said “hard wood”. BUY THEM HERE! Click through for more “bot on bot action”.
As you might have noticed, Cubebot, Julien, and Guthrie are not opposed to switching partners. Although the three robots are all, to a degree, polyamorous, it is highly unusual for them to be seen in a threesome as above.

Julien is always fainting. Such a drama queen!
