Boris is not your typical robot. He won't perform menial tasks for your
amusement or convenience. He's not about to enslave the human race. Boris just wants to
kick back with a martini and enjoy his retirement with a life of leisure.
Katharine Miller, a freelance designer and writer in Orlando, FL, announces the launch of
WHiRR, a new line of robot-themed artwork and paper goods. Inspired by the clunky robot styles
of the 1950s and 1960s, Miller has created a whimsical alternative to the sleek laser-shooting
robots of the 21st century. Despite his robot exterior, Boris exhibits many human
characteristics and emotionslike confusion, love, and disappointment. The artwork is colorful,
clever, and mostly upbeat.
WHiRR products include stationery, greeting cards, wine glass charms, buttons, and magnets.
All products are designed, packaged and shipped by Miller. WHiRR provides great gift options
for technology enthusiasts of any age and gender.
In addition to merchandise, WHiRR offers several free downloads including avatars, desktop
images, printable PDF activity pages and Valentines Day cards, as well as a Boris paper doll.
The artwork and merch can be found on the WHiRR website.
WHiRR merchandise is available through their website and several other online shops, including
Cut + Paste,
Olde Garage, and
Pixelgirl Shop. Our Boris sculpture was on display and won best
3-Dimensional Artwork at JACON 2005.
