The Geo-Bot 8.9 mines in an underground cavern, which resembles Giant's Causeway. Equipped with heavy armor and drill feet, the Geo-Bot 8.9 can grind up an obtrustive rock formation in its path. Also, it finds companionship in a canary - the mecha's programmers are unsure of the cause of its affection for the avian creature, as robots do not feel. Leading researchers call this phenomenon "heartbyte". Apparently the glitch bites the "heart" - that is, the central memory chip of the metal man. However, the glitch does not affect the mecha's occupation - mining - so he has yet to be thrown into the trash compactor.
