According to a recent report from United Research of Anima Machine- U.R.A.M., a brand new species of mechanized sentient creatures have been discovered operating within communities. Said to exhibit sophisticated and uniform behavioral patterns, this new species has been observed communicating actively with each other in colonies not unlike those of bees and ants. Communities of these species gather and collect to form a giant mass of pulsing, breathing light, where they exchange information concerning where to find city energy, their main source of sustenance.
