We’ve all been on the edge of our seats as season 3 of Overwatch, one of the world’s most exciting and growing franchises, came to an end. We’ve all heard rumors and speculations as to what’s next from Blizzard as far as a new character is concerned. Perhaps a first hand interview with someone can shed some light. The following interview was conducted by Atlas News:
I’d like to start off by congratulating you, Efi. This is a tremendous, well-deserved honor. How do you feel?
Amazing! I wasn’t expecting it at all, so it was a big surprise. At first, I thought it was a joke—like one of my friends playing a trick on me. It’s been a week now and it still doesn’t seem real, but I’m very happy about it. Much better than winning the science fair.
How did you get into robots and artificial intelligence?
Well, I’ve always been interested. After my mom and dad got me my first robotics kit, I became obsessed with putting together little drones. When I started to get good at it, I tried to build robots to do my chores and help around the house. My parents think it’s cheating… It’s no fair! (laughs)
I want to create things that make our lives better. And someday, my dream is to build something that can keep us safe, like the new OR15s! I think that would be great.
It’s amazing what you’ve been able to accomplish at your age! How do you do it?
I’m not sure how to answer that. I just do it! I guess I’m very lucky that my parents put up with it. Robots can be messy, you know. And expensive.
Speaking of which, do you have any plans for what you’re going to do with your grant? New computer? College tuition?
Oh… I have an idea…
It’s a secret for now… but my parents are taking me on a trip to celebrate! It’ll be my first time flying, so I can’t wait.
When will we have answers? February 28 at 4:00 p.m. we can put all speculations to bed as we lose all sleep while we game the night away.
