A Tractor Named Tachikoma


I finally named one of the tractors! After some one-on-one time disk tilling a new plot yesterday I settled on the perfect name for our blue beast: Tachikoma, after an anthropomorphic and sentient robot-tank from the famous anime Ghost in the Shell. I think you can see the resemblance! In the series Tachikomas are a model of military tank which run on the same artificial intelligence but halfway through the series each tank begins to develop individuality and free will–but it doesn’t end poorly! Tachikomas are so cute and helpful; I knew it was the perfect name for our tractor. Now we just have to wait for our bud to develop intelligence!
