Marvin continually says that his brain is the size of a planet (in fact because of this, he is eternally bored because nothing takes up his entire mind), enabling him to calculate the probability of just about anything. However, when he bothers to share the fruit of his mental labours with those around him, they tend to ignore him because he usually just ends up depressing them.
In his spare time, which has been legendary because any time that he commits to thought processes necessary to perform any assigned duties takes up such a small percentage of his brain, and with all of the traveling through space and time performing assigned duties have rendered him many times over the span of the universe, he has been known to write and sing songs; just not very good ones and not very well.
TV series: Marvin’s physical appearance was approximately that of a tall, roughly humanoid , reminiscent of 1950’s science fiction movies design, with angular features.
Novel(s): He’s described as “… though it was beautifully constructed and polished it looked somehow as if the various parts of its more or less humanoid body didn’t quite fit properly. In fact they fitted perfectly well, but something in its bearing suggested that they might have fitted better.”
Movie: Marvin is short with an oversized spherical head, sleek surfaces but a comical design.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
