How to Build a Technology-Free Utopia

If a handful of obsolete robots can do it, so can you.

Let’s face it: Between the internet, your phone, traffic lights and Easy-Bake Ovens, your life is controlled by technology. And keeping up with all of these devices can be stressful as hell. It’s only natural that you’d want to unplug for a bit.
Luckily for you, Bender washed up on a desert island inhabited by a community of outdated robots who did just that. It’s amazing how few things you need in order to maintain a harmonious, tech-free society. Observe.

This is probably a given, since you’re (ostensibly) a human, and humans are mostly water. It’s important not to pare down too much, and hydration is a biggie in the basics department.

Without your precious TV, watching snails crawl around is the only entertainment available to you. Just line them up and watch them go. You can also name them, race them, eat them… Listen, we’re not here to tell you what to do with your snails, just that you should collect as many snails as possible.


It’s not clear how these robots have remained active during their time on the island. Only one of them runs on water, and the others don’t seem to be alcohol-powered like Bender. If they’re smuggling in batteries from somewhere, this seems like a breach of the whole “living without technology” thing. Then again, these are robots trying to rid themselves of technology. Who are we to question their faulty logic?


Hey, going back to the simple things doesn’t mean you have to give up all of life’s luxuries.
