Bumpy Trot kicks off with the notion that among the many advances of the Industrial Revolution in Europe -- along with things like smog, assembly lines, and 72-hour work weeks -- was the development of humanoid worker robots. Called "trot vehicles" -- because of their bouncy, trotting gait -- these modular, customizable working 'bots revolutionized labor, but also led to new innovations in violence and crime (it's Patlabor 1889, kinda). Small ones are powered by internal combustion engines, while bigger models use steam power to get around.
