Peter Harwood is a six foot guy with brown eyes and sun tanned skin. His golden hair always waves when the wind blows making him hotter than he is. His golden skin and his six packs drive all the girls crazy and they fall in love with him from first glance. And because of this reason he is called Mr. Hot and Sexy in his school.

Peter is a straight A’s student and loves science a lot comparing to other subjects. His dream is to become a scientist. He studies about scientists during his leisure time. His favourite is Isaac Newton. Peter since small days wanted to invent something as well. But one weakness of him is that sometimes his mind flows far far away and he starts dreaming one of his best friends who is his only female best friend, Stacey Bright.

Stacey is also straight A’s student who is also a science lover. She always becomes the beauty queen in her grade. Stacey like Peter is a gold medallist in swimming. And if you listen to Stacey and Peter’s conversations, you will find them talking about something related to science. They have so much in common.

After graduation, Stacey and Peter both went to Stanford University and graduated with first class as a scientist. They joined the best science related company in their country which mainly deals about new technology.

In the mid of June 1996, Peter was in deep thought when Stacey came to his place. Even though Stacey knocked at the door, Peter did not show any sign that he knows her present. Stacey was curious because this is the first time Peter has acted like this. He was deeply absorbed in thoughts while staring at his table. Stacey decided to shake Peter and question him. But she was scared that he might have being thinking about another girl.

“Hi Peter. What are you thinking about so much? Were you thinking a solution for our project?” Stacey asked while drawing a chair to sit next to him.

“Hi Stacey, I didn’t see or hear you coming. Did you come right now? Hope I didn’t keep you waiting.” said Peter feeling bad for the thought of making her wait like a non gentleman.

“I was here half an hour ago. What were you thinking about? We don’t keep secrets between us, remember! You promised me to be my soul brother.” said Stacey reminding him the promises they made during primary school.

“I was thinking of inventing of inventing something like an artificial human brain ... you know like a robot.” Said Peter regretting for saying it as he felt that she might think he is going insane.

“Wow I want to help you. I always wanted to do something and make myself popular. Maybe even to be in the history. Just imagine fans and other people following you. They will ask autographs from me and I will have fame. I can have a mansion. I can be a millioner ... no a billioner...” trailed of Stacey as Peter interrupted her.

“Seriously! I’m struggling to figure out how to invent and you just talk about the future. No fame if you won’t help me and stop dreaming would you! What if we fail to make one? You know we are taking a big risk and money...” said Peter. So many questions popping up in his mind making his head feel heavy and dizzy.

“Calm down, dear. Together we can think and make an effective plan. Sure we can figure out somehow to make one. Promise! Somehow!” said Stacey trying to comfort Peter as much as possible as she did not want to see him so down with a sad face drawn over him.

“Are you sure? What kind of do you want to make? I think I want one for cooking purpose. I don’t have to be bothered to cook then. Can even stay single rest of my life then.” said Peter not thinking deep about his statement before telling it.

“Yah, maybe. It will be easy for us as well. Don’t have to cook for our boyfriends or husbands. No complains as well.” said Stacey in a low voice.

Peter understood from her tone that Stacey’s feelings got hurt due to his statement. He felt so bad for hurting her feelings. Talking about boyfriends and husbands, does she have a boyfriend without my knowledge?

“So now how are we going to make it? It’s so complicated. How are we going to design it? Gosh! This is so stressful!” exclaimed Peter at the end.

“Don’t worry, dear. I’ll make a plan and design it. Just give me a day or two to plan it. Please, let me do it this time. You always make the plan.” said Stacey. She so badly wanted to show Peter that she was capable to do something taking the responsibility fully.

“I’ll make the plan, dear. You just have to help me to make it. You can do the editing of the plan using your brilliant mind.” said Peter as he didn’t want her to get too stressed out as he liked to see her smiling all the time with less stress. Besides he knew the fact that Stacey will work over night just to make the plan. He didn’t want her to fall sick.

“Please, just this once let me make the plan. I’m sick and tired of just letting you take all the responsibility without my help even in the stuff we have to do together. I promise that I will make a good plan and I’ll show you the sketch tomorrow. I already have a good idea in my mind and I would only share it if you let me draw the plan.” said Stacey in a pleading voice.

Peter knew that it is useless to argue against her decision as she is a head strong girl. Stacey is the type of girl who doesn’t mind dying just to make sure her decision gets selected and will work for it when she decided to do something. “Fine dear. But don’t over work for it. You might get heartaches like the one you get in the office sometime.” Peter said finally agreeing.

The next day evening Stacey came running with a big smile on her face. Her eyes were shinning with delight. Peter was filled with curiosity as Stacey was dressed on a light pink sleeveless top which her zero figure and a mini red skirt. She looked so gorgeous and beautiful. Not to mention that she looked so attractive that any would be tempted by her. Peter felt like even the Prince would be tempted by her beauty. Is she smiling that her secret crush asked her out or has she finished drawing the sketch and analyzed the plan already or both?

“Hi darling! I finished making the plan. Can we start? I know you would love it.” said Stacey laying a kiss on his cheek suddenly surprising Peter.

“So what is it?” Peter asked curiously. He was surprised to find out that Stacey was able to invent one or even plan something like that.

“It’s technically a robot with voice recognition if you want to know so badly about my plan.” said with a smile. She felt happy and proud of herself for achieving her goal and for surprising Peter and getting the full attention.

“Ok...” said Peter and thought for a while before starting to speak again. “Even if the robot is a voice recognition one, how will it be able to cook and prepare meals for humans? We have to insert that technology to the robot then.” Peter said thinking a way to do it.

“I planned it all dear. It’s similar to some of the functions of the computer as well. We are going to have to program the robot like we program a computer.” said Stacey. She then showed her designed models with the appearance of the robots in different sized which she explained that the size depends on the capacity it needs for the robots’ work.

“So I’ll do the programming of the robots using the computer programming knowledge. But can you like specify which areas should I have to program in the brain of the robot?” asked Peter trying to figure out what exactly is required for the robot to function the way she planned it.

“I was thinking to program all the recipes with ingredients. So when a person tells the food name, it will recognize the recipe and follow it. Also I was planning for each ingredient and items required also we will program with images of them. Then the robot will tally the images and use it.” said Stacey proudly as Peter was now asking her about the plan first time in their life. She enjoyed explaining all the things which should be programmed in the robot.

One of the things which help them most to make their invention successful is that this is not the first robot Stacey and Peter had made. They had made robots for industrial purposes like for the Toyota Company to make manufacturing cars efficiently consuming a short time period by using labour specialization method and division of labour. The other thing is that Peter has done a degree on computer programming with his elder brother and received first class. This knowledge is going to be very useful to program the robot and for saving data in it’s so called brain which is only a memory card like in a computer which can process the input and give out the output efficiently.

Stacey and Peter decided to start making the robot due to some reasons. They knew if it is successful, they could sell it which will be purchased by hotels and rich people throughout the world. Especially the rich working class will buy it as when they come home after work they are tired to cook dinner afterwards. And also because the robot does not get tired and can work continuously without a rest, hotels would purchase it replacing the human labour.

It took two years for them to fully complete their robot and make one who works properly. Their industrial robot had to be tested by customers as well was Stacey’s idea like the acceptance test in computer programs. Therefore Peter decided to prepare with his speech for introducing the robot to the world.

After the researching, Peter came to a final conclusion. Their robot, Mr Lewis, is a type of manufacturing robots. Peter then studied all three types of robots which are material handling, processing operations and assembly and inspection. Peter the realised that Mr Lewis is falling under the category of processing operations application manufacturing robots.

Peter then decided to analyze about the robot programming. He went through the features of the robot language so that he can explain it briefly. He decided to explain how robot language will help in decision making and robot controlling and that the main capabilities include motion controlling and the input and output option.

Peter jot down all the points he thought that would be important to describe Mr Lewis. Then Peter showed all the points to Stacey and they discussed about the points. Stacey at the end came up with the idea of adding some more details about robot manipulator which has two main sections which are an arm and the body which consists of three joints connected by large links and a wrist consisting of two or three compact joints generally.

After testing the robot with the help of their parents and few selected individuals, they arrived to the conclusion that it is suitable to sell it. After few months of the day they started to sell, all the hotels started to purchase as they decided to move to the new technology.

Stacey and Peter were so happy that they were able to achieve their goal. Their names went down the history for the services rendered to the science field. And not only that, Peter and Stacey’s bond tightened at the end. They started dating and after two years they got married and lived happily together making more inventions to develop the future infrastructure and for the economic growth throughout the entire world.
