On the run? Better hope they don’t discover you’re a human and not a robot. Make this little guy when you’re feeling not yourself but playing a role to get where you’re going! Then watch the movie and have a good laugh.
1. Get started by printing out the sleeperbot.pdf and grabbing some scissors and a glue stick.
If you haven’t watched the movie before:
“Miles Monroe (Woody Allen), a jazz musician and owner of the “Happy Carrot” health-food store in 1973, is subjected to cryopreservation without his consent, and not revived for 200 years.The scientists who revive him are members of a rebellion: 22nd-century America seems to be a police state, ruled by a dictator about to implement a secret plan known as the “Aries Project”. The rebels hope to use Miles as a spy to infiltrate the Aries Project, because he is the only member of this society without a known biometric identity. The authorities discover the scientists’ project, and arrest them. Miles escapes by disguising himself as a robot, and goes to work as a butler in the house of socialite Luna Schlosser (Diane Keaton).” (Wiki)
