In the future; the last of the robotic detectives will be shunned by his human counterparts. He’s old-school then and prefers to tread the streets, talking to perp’s & con’s. Besides a failing optic core he has a simulated addiction to rarely obtained tobacco cigarettes. It’s no wonder that nobody wants to talk to Nick.
As always with my paintings, I add Easter-eggs. In this case I added the ‘Cybernautics’ police badge. That name is a reference to a Red Dwarf episode. The Symbol on the badge is the same electric symbol used on schematics for a light-bulb.
