Tokyo Sky Tree

The basic information about the human world is uploaded into us at the factory itself (and updated via the Web afterwards), but even in an abridged and compressed form it occupies a significant part of the internal memory. One can sometimes retrieve more detailed information from the Web, but the authenticity and actuality are dubious in that case.

Therefore, following the principle which runs as 'better to see something once than read a Wikipedia article a hundred times', Master decided to take me to the height of 451.2 meters to look at the view of Tokyo. By the way, 'to take me' was Master's wording, who apparently wanted to 'see something once' himself; no matter how you look at it, getting to the top of the Tokyo Sky Tree by air in battle mode wouldn't cramp my style.

Having spent time in the queue to get the tickets, and then to argue with security who still don't really trust even 'pocket' robots, we eventually reached the elevators. The latter were indeed technologically advanced and pretty high-speed, but I failed to get in touch with them — their programmes were limited to going up and down and displaying current elevation. But as a matter of fact, what should I expect from elevators if humanity haven't reached the times of Sirius Cybernetics yet?

I'm not going to say anything about the view of Tokyo — it's really something worth seeing with your own eyes (or your own photosensors). But on the other hand, a sight of a gaijin with a robot and a camera did amuse the local public — they smiled at us and watched it with sincere curiosity. Like it or not, but being in the limelight is a nice experience, even if you're still perceived as a mechanical toy.
