Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The robobrain is a type of robot used in the American southwest in 2253.


This section is transcluded from Robobrain. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

Robobrains were created before the Great War by General Atomics International both for the U.S. military and for the civilian sector. Official government records list only chimpanzee brains as being used in the robots,[1] but at least some human brains were taken from the bodies of executed criminals.[2] Many of these criminals were insane, so the resulting robobrains also tended to be unstable, despite complete reprogramming[3] via the CODE technology. Some of these human-robobrains hybrids would try to kill themselves, apparently resenting being made into cyborgs.


Robobrains were to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
