The EQuality Bot hails from the rainbow planet I n clu tio u s . For decades, EQuality Bot lived amongst their fellow robots, but soon decided that they wanted to go on a journey to see how other life forms lived across the galaxy. After a long expedition through the Cosmos, EQuality Bot shared their knowledge of love, unity, and acceptance. During their travels, they stumbled upon The Blue Planet Earth. Sensing that some of Earth’s inhabitants were in the throes of War, lack of equality, and hatefulness, EQuality Bot believed a landing on this planet was in order. To EQuality Bot, this way of living seemed confusing and difficult. It was nothing close to what they had ever experienced before. Then and there, They decided to spread their message with the Earthlings. They showed that although we don’t have to agree with other’s differences, we can still be accepting of them as fellow human beings. We are all different, and that is what makes every single one of us beautiful. Through communication, respect and proper support of one another, we can move towards a more zen like state of humanity. EQuality Bot blends the inclusive rainbow flag colors on its hardware body to represent the LGBTQ+ community along with the added black and brown to show the alliance with the Black Lives Matter movement. Love is respect. This is the essence of love. It is in our differences that we can find connection with one another. Respect. Kindness. Unity. This is the embodiment of the EQuality Bot.
How to Build an EQ-uality Bot
1.)With a pair of scissors or X-ACTO knife, cut out each piece marked by the black dotted lines.
2.)Take tabs B1, B2 & B3 and fold corresponding triangles inwards along the white dotted line.
3.)Once pyramid is formed, fold tabs B1, B2, and B3 inwards, and tape tabs to keep pyramid closed.
4.)Starting with L1, roll it into a cylinder & tape together (the wider the radius, the better). Make sure there are 2 tabs on the top of the cylinder.
5.)Repeat for L2 and L3.
6.)Fold tabs for L1, L2, and L3 outwards.
7.)Tape the tabs L1, L2, and L3 to each corner of the bottom of BB to create the legs.
8.)Show the EQ-uality Bot to all your friends and have it stationed on your work desk, bedside table, or as a gift!
