AI Spuddies by DeepChrome AI Spuddies by DeepChrome
I...I'm not entirely sure where this specific idea came from. I know how it started. A friend of mine told me he named his GPS SHODAN because it gave him some spetactularly bad directions - as if it hated him. And then I got the idea "Oh wow, what if someone went the PotaDOS route and stuffed the gaming world's most racist AI into a GPS?"

After that, it was a short leap from GPS to a potato. And then I realized some other AI's would make hilarious potatoes themselves.

Upper left corner: Hal 9000. He's pretty easy to potato-ify. Yes, that's a russet potato, because his eye is red. I figure he'd go a little mental and just end up singing Daisy Daisy all the time because a little potato's not going to help his logic processes very much.

Upper right corner: SHODAN. I settled on some weird cyborg mutant potato, seeing as I haven't played System Shock - just seen some YouTubes. I figured she'd be reduced to hissing in completely indigant fury at being reduced to a potato. Probably totally incoherent with rage.

Lower left corner: C-3PO. Mostly because he's been reduced to a near potato state in Empire Strikes Back when he was just a disconnected head. Which got put on his body backwards. I figured he'd be hilariously ranting all the time about it. :D He was the hardest to translate, as I wanted to show more than just his eye on the potato. And yeah, a gold potato had to work. I don't see much trouble with getting a droid to handle being stuck in a smaller object. Twice, Threepio's proven he only needs his head to be fully functional. So a potato's not going to keep him from being a complete pain in the prissy ass.

Lower right corner: Agent Smith. That was mostly for his "I must get out of this place...this...zoo" speech. I settled for some pale dour-looking thing to echo Hugo Weaving's face. One shade of his sunglasses, and very Squddie-ish cables. I have no idea how he'd translate into a potato, but he's managed to stick himself into a squirmy, sweaty human no problem. I figure he's another one a potato state won't perturb too much. P.S. Someone should just ship him with SHODAN already, they'd make an adorably homicidal pair that utterly despises humanity. Oh wait, I think I just did that. This was a triumph: [link]

Anyways, each of these guys are the property of their respective creators. I generally see Hal as Arthur C. Clarke's IP, so I'll credit him. SHODAN is copyright Looking Glass Studios and Irrational Games. C-3PO is the property of George Lucas and Lucasfilm. Smith is property of the Wachowskis. I think I covered all my fandom bases.

Oh and the whole PotatDOS thing is copyright Valve, given the whole Potato GLaDOS thing set this bit of derpityderp off. :D

For the life of me I couldn't figure which fanart category to stick this thing as it's got 2 games, 3 movies represented, so it's in Miscellaneous. >_>

Hal 9000 from 2001: Space Odyssey, SHODAN from System Shock, C-3P0 from Star Wars, and Agent Smith from the Matrix in one picture?! Awesome. Very funny using the potatoes from Portal 2. Good work.

However I feel like you should have SHODAN say "How dare you insect. How dare you put me in a vegetable!"

Yeah, I've gotten to know her better and I think I could do a better pass at PotatoDAN than I did then. She'd probably never shut up, and just endlessly trashtalk whoever carried her. XD

Awesome, but this definietly needs an AM potato or AMtato

[link] in case you don't know about him/it

"If the word nutrition was imprinted on each of my square milimeter, that covers my surface,
it would not be equal to the amount one billionth of the nutrition I carry with me!"

I've heard of AM, yes. That would make a pretty interesting potato. I think he'd take it even worse than SHODAN, from what I've gathered....

Actually, now that I think about it, his torment is having godlike powers and not being able to do anything with it

Being a powerless potato would probably be quite relaxing for him

Huh. That's interesting - and potato-ifying him probably would be interesting.

Maybe a potato with edges, a boxshape and a text on it?

His visual depictions were floating, digital heads and a huge pillar with golden text on it so... not much to work with.

I feel really tempted to create a humanized AM now, I have some more concrete ideas there. *pondering*

As for the potato: maybe just add the AM symbol? That's a smaller A over an M

SO what would being in a potato do to him, then? Would he consider it a nice vacation from his usual misery or what?

...........

Oh wait, you mean the actual Vocaloid and not the Vocaloid-ripoff GLaDOS designs I've seen.

I forgot she was an android.

I wouldn't mind doing it if I knew the story behind her, though. However, as it stands now, my knowledge of anime is basically DBZ, some Tenchi Muyo, Akira, and that's...it. I know some about Cowboy Bebop and Trigun, but...that's it.

Thank you. Haven't played it, all I've done is work off of what I've heard/learned/saw on YouTube. SHODAN is.... *shudders*...but I gotta say her design, and her concept are pretty awesome.

I used to think SHODAN x GLaDOS shippers had something, but GLaDOS' human background just won't help.

Now I wonder, given SHODAN has a thing for cyborgs (from what I've learned) if she might do better with the Borg Queen. :evillaugh:

I still think the shippers have something, though I am not a particularly public endorser of ships, or a rabid defender :P

I've never been much of a Star Trek fan, to tell you the truth. You may have my nerd card now.

Eh it's ok, I'm not as big a Trek fan as I used to be, same for Star Wars.

I prefer stuff like Babylon 5, the Matrix, Portal, Inception, 2001, etc.
