That detail is from this week's WolfieToon at "DISCIPLINE & DESIRE," and is the latest version of a machine I've had in mind for decades.
First of all, on the Forever Coolometer, Robots are at Number Two, just behind Dinosaurs. But it's pretty close. Sometimes people just can't make up their minds, and you have Dinosaur Robots.
My personal favorite, the robot I had circa 1961, was ROBOT COMMANDO!!
Don't be fooled by what the box says, you could control Robot Commando even if your name was Irving, and Under Your Command, he Ambled Menacingly in four directions like a tank, rolled his Hypnotic Eyeballs, hurled Projectile Spheres and SHOT MISSILES OUT OF THE TOP OF HIS HEAD!! Red rubber-tipped missiles. Holy Freudian Symbolism, Batman!
In turn, my boys had the TRANSFORMERS (Robots In Disguise!!) and the "Star Wars" 'Droids.
You'll notice how red is always a favorite color.

Say, I bet you can find the ones YOU loved at this website: THE OLD ROBOTS WEBSITE!
Well, anyway, two passions must eventually meld, and thus is born the Spanking Robot.
That's an early version of mine that I'm proud to see parading around the Web!
There have been others; You "Big Bang Theory" types should recognize these two characters in a photo done by ADzArt at Deviantart!
"Carrie" from the British For-The-Men Mag "Mayfair" got a good scrubbing from her automaton assistant. That's not quite a spanking, but it's pretty close. A brush was involved.
(I think that's Don Lawrence's painting-- but that assumption is subject to correction!)
There are Bots paddling Bottoms all over the Web! Do a search and see what's at Chross's site, Chicago Spanking Review, the Spank Statement, and Nik Zula's cartoons!
I prefer the humanoid versions to the mere "spanking machines," which, as everybody knows, have always been in the Principal's Office.
Now, regarding my latest version, Kaki wanted to know how it was controlled.
Well, the red dial on the upper front-center of Robospankher 7.0 is the Control Setting, which One can adjust Herself. It will ask "Are you certain of the number of smacks and intensity level?" and once she presses, "Yes," this cannot be changed, even by calling out "Banana Oil!" or some such.
However, there is a Top Voice Recognition and Activation Override which can be used to change those settings, or to ensure that a proper paddling takes place in case the Top must be away.
Which addresses a question Larken asked: Why would a Top ever delegate this important duty to an electronic device? It is not, as she slyly suggested, any laziness on his part, but is in fact an Emergency Measure, just in case he is required elsewhere but She Absolutely Positively Needs To Get Spanked Right Away.
As a matter of fact, Larken sugested that the Robospankher 7.0 was not any mechanical marvel at all, but Wolfie in his Halloween costume!
Why I never.
