Robbie: A Short Film Made Entirely From NASA Footage [Video]

Neil Harvey artfully took 8 minutes of NASA footage and spliced it together with a musical score and narrative overlay to create the story of Robbie; a self aware robot. If your boss asks why you’re crying in your cubicle, just make him watch it too.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    How is it possible that I could become so choked up over a story about a robot who displays more kindness and humanity than most humans I know? Left alone by his human “friends”, he had to see his home before he fell asleep. How sad. How beautiful.

    Might be the second best film ever made.

    I wouldn’t have believed I could be so touched, become so emotional just watching a robot film – I was, though, definitely. Not so tough after all…
    Thank you, H-T G.
