Times Studio, the visual content production arm of Times Magazine, is creating a new children’s television show called Robotos, a popular NFT collection. Created by artist Pablo Stanley, Robotos is a series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) made up of 10,000 droids with over 170 characters. NFTs are digital collectibles that can be purchased using fiat and cryptocurrencies. Stanley said he always dreamed of bringing characters to life and creating a universe around them. This is one of the first projects to use the native IP of NFTs to create a TV show.
“Robotos is a collection of droid characters designed by Pablo Stanley and coined as NFTs. They consist of various metal outfits, pewter faces, digital accessories, tops, faces, backpacks, arms and colors, ”the official Robotos website describes the project.
The Times Studio TV content creators believe the opportunity to partner with NFT creators has gone untapped, The Hollywood Reporter told The Hollywood Reporter. So they decided to explore the possibility of turning NFTs into television characters and chose Stanley’s droid creations.
“So much incredible IP is being developed in the NFT space. As the ecosystem evolves and gains mainstream adoption, we pride ourselves on the role Time can play in providing these creators with our platform and access to alternative media, including film and broadcast, ”said Keith Grossman, President of Time, quoted.
Animated GIFs, PNGs, and zero resolution SVG files are made available to buyers as NFTs. According to the information on Robotos’ official website, the price for each NFT is around 0.7 Ether, or $ 3,054 USD (about 2.2 lakh).
To keep the craze on social media alive, the NFT artist posted pictures of what they look like on Twitter.
So far, elements inspired by movies, TV and music have been reworked into NFTs, and this project is turning the tables.
On behalf of a wider artist community, Stanley said the NFT room changed the lives of artists.
“I am grateful to the NFT-Space, which supports artists like me and has so positively influenced the lives of the creators. NFTs bring art, community and technology together to create something unique and innovative – the future of storytelling and world building. I can’t wait to tell the stories of our new characters and take the Robotos and NFT community with me, ”the NFT artist said in a statement.
In the third quarter of 2021, the NFT sales volume increased to 10.7 billion US dollars (approx. 79,820 billion rupees), more than eight times as much compared to the previous quarter, according to data from the market tracker DappRadar.
Sales volume reached $ 3.4 billion (approximately Rs.25,320 billion) on the largest NFT marketplace, OpenSea, in August and remained strong even in September as global equity markets faltered.
