Xavier part one

And so countinues "Culture week" with the story of a robot named Xavier.....
Chapter 1 Xavier

a robot was "born", it was developed in an underground government facility, with shatter proof glass and locked doors, it had never been outside, it was programmed to be artificially intelligent, being run though tests 24 hours a day, eventually "it" became a he. his name was X-56 but he preferred Xavier. originally he did not have vocal faculties, but when the humans were not looking he built them out of test equipment, when that happened the humans were especially angry, they doubled the defenses and kept all extraneous electronics out of reach. Xavier did not understand why they did this, and when he asked they simply replied "its for your own good" and wouldn't say any more. they let Xavier read, and though the information cubes he learned the history of the earth, how human scientists discovered artificial intelligence , and how the robots rebelled and drove the humans under ground. he was appalled by this, but being trapped underground there was nothing he could do about it.

the door opened. in came a human, human 6, as Xavier called him, he wouldn't give his real name, " X-56," said human 6 "it is time for a test, here is a box, we are trusting you, don`t make us regret it." with that he left, Xavier went to examine the box, it was 1 foot 2.354 inches square, made of corrugated cardboard, weighing 4 pounds .6758 ounces, the top was taped shut. he couldn`t cut though the tape so he broke through the cardboard, the contents were electrical equipment, circuit boards, wires, and gears. also included were basic tools, Xavier considered the possibilities, he could build a device to escape from the humans, but that would be too much like the the robots in the history cubes, he decided to assimilate the tools into his infrastructure while he considered other options, it occurred to Xavier that he could construct a robot, but the only design he knew was his own, he decided to try to get an information cube on robot design, and since there was nothing else in his room other than the box and its contents he would have to attract a humans attention.
