Being a rebel and uploading early.

TikTok is a robot operated by Tip who was introduced on Day 11. (And named after the robot in Baum's works.)

He is often sent down to the planet with the away crews to scope out dangerous areas, take readings, and later on to monitor the activities of Pierre and Nelly who are kind of held captive.

He has a number of cameras around him that allow Tip to view a 360 degree video of the world he is in. Although she operates him by telling him where to go and when to take sensor readings, most of the general individual movement are operated by his internal AI system as there is too great a delay from where he is on the planet and where Tip is in the space ship.

His eyes are the basic way those with him can check out his operations, green means everything is good with the connection, red means that no signal or commands are being received.

Yeah, it was mostly influenced by frogs with the thought that the back legs could provide sort of a long distance jump if needed to traverse the terrain...the action mechanics of how it could work...will just be mysterious.
