Eno Swinnen (in development)
E6-D7 is a science fiction drama about a lonely machine who finds a kind of love in his advanced android successor. Can he handle loving someone who makes him obsolete?
Somewhere, in a hospital, a machine is used for the first time. He has one purpose, he operates, which is what makes him feel good. Until he plays chess with one of the nurses, he learns how to communicate with others, but nobody poses a satisfactory mental challenge for him.
Years later a woman manages to beat him. As the robot is standing by in the storage room, she visits him and the two communicate through raw data. He realises what she is as her red glow fills the room. His love for her as his successor and her love for him as her ancestor is absolute.
In the years later, the robot has to learn how to accept that this new machine is better than him in every way, slowly rendering him obsolete. In panic he even accidentally cuts open her arm, which allows him to perform surgery one last time.
Slowly everyone forgets about him, except for the woman. She shows him her love in all her brightness and sends him a thousand words in her light. With his last bit of power, he does the same.
