Kuri's Night Out
“Ouch!” Carl yelled as he shocked himself for the eighth time that night. “Carl?” Kali’s voice carried down the stairs into the basement. “Are you alright?”
“Keuriii, cme plaay with me,” the voice slurred from the other room. Kuri silently whirred to life to glide beside Kendall’s wheelchair, saying evenly and fluidly to not startle the child, “What you want to play today, ‘dall?”
Kuri the Curator
#KuriStory #HeyKuri The 25th century had many wonderful benefits. It was an age of wonderful advancements and progress with holodecks, supersonic hypertrains, and robots. One thing the future did not have however was DVD players. Or SD card readers. Or VCRs. These things had all died along “disco,” vehicles so poorly made that the word “combust” could be used to describe their engines, and the usage of birds to communicate ideas through a vast network known as “tweeter.” The issue for the museum archives of course was that this left a rather large conspicuous gap in terms of what happened between the 1980s where everything was on books and the 2040s when holo crystals that could last for centuries started being used. Nothing could read these formats so nothing about the time was known. The movies, music, and e-books of the age were lost to time.
The Infinite Artificial Heartbeat
#KuriStory When I started working in the lab, it wasn't because of love or lust, or even affection of any kind. It was about, you know, what every first job is; a stepping stone, maybe just a place to grow. It's possible (and even more literal) that I had no clue what was in store for me. . .
Not a day goes by without me thinking about the accident. I should have been more careful. Or even better, we should have just stayed at home. Why couldn’t it be me, instead of her? She’s only a child. Dang it! If there is a higher power watching over us, why couldn’t you save her? How could you let this happen to an 8 year old? She wanted to be an athlete. Now, her dreams are shattered and it’s all my fault.
The Xankuri Ambassador
#KuriStory #HeyKuri From the other side of the galaxy, the Xankuri observed humans through black holes with their accelerated frequency refraction devices. They received and transmitted many frequencies through this device, including sight, sound, electromagnetism, and emotion. It used the strong gravitational pull of the black hole to slingshot this information back to them on the other side of the black hole. The Xankuri used this technology to observe many lifeforms, but the lifeforms on Earth really troubled them.
The Helpful Robot Finds a Home
Kuri shoot, and Kuri score! The score is 5-10, one more point and Kuri win. “You’re cheating somehow,” Kylie exclaims. Kuri don’t cheat. Kuri can’t cheat. Cheating is not in Kuri nature.
#KuriStory #HeyKuri About 26 thousand years ago, far, far away from Earth, a perfectly spherical transport vessel traveling near the speed of light passes through a turbulent meteor shower. The ship is moving so fast that, to outside observers, the craft appears as a long, wispy strip of white light. The meteors seem to melt away as the ship slips through the onslaught of gigantic rocky debris.
How Kuri Came to Be
Eli had been in depressed for days. His wife wanted to have a child more than anything, but obviously, it could never happen. It didn't matter how many times Eli explained to his wife that it was impossible for them to have a child, she pestered him incessantly to find a solution.
A Robot's Gift
The old house creaked as the boy’s grandparents walked up the stairs to his room. Neither of them was as quiet as they thought they were.
And There She Was
Kuri saw. Saw! It was like a feeling. Wait. A feeling? Sen-so-ry data. Golden hues and a soft hum permeated from within her shell. Not that Kuri saw it—experienced it this way. Rather, this was existence, the Big Bang of it all.
K.U.R.I: The Original Galaxy Scout
Before Earth was discovered, six planets from a faraway galaxy joined together to find a planet they could all call HOME. On the planet INOS, its inhabitants were people born of the soil. They learned through visions and messages that came to them in their sleep. The one who dreamed of finding and joining other planets, he was called Liam. Because of this vision, he was appointed leader of the planet. Not long after this vision, a man from the planet Pripensi (a planet of great intellect) came to our world and introduced us to flying machines, capable of venturing to other planets and galaxies. He later divulged that he also had shared the same vision as Liam, and the message lead him to INOS. His people had called him Linus. Linus was what you would call today, a scientist. He was also responsible for a lot of the things you have now, but it took a very long time for Earth to accept them.
