Hu­mans may no longer run the world, but ro­bot civil­i­sa­tion still has its ne’er-do-wells. As a me­chanic you’ll re­spray and put new plates on a stolen car, and strip a ve­hi­cle brought in by a valet in a hurry for parts. A stickup at the con­ve­nience store sees you urged by a ban­dit point­ing a banana at you and in­sist­ing you open the safe and hand over “that sweet ched­dar”. Af­ter we’ve peeled the banana and eaten it, we do as we’re told. In­side there’s no cash – just wedges of Swiss cheese.
