Cerulean Robotics was a business built in a monolithic office building. It is now abandoned in a lonely and occasionally traversed section of Freeside.[1]


This building is located in the south-west of northern Freeside (the Courier's position on map to the right), in the same area as the ruined store (where NCR troops are handing out free meals to NCR citizens, also where the courier goes for the quest G.I. Blues). Keep walking past the ruined store, down the roadway, and a small gap in the piles of concrete opens up to the characters' left. Head through this and directly ahead and slightly to the right is the building.

The building consists of several rooms spread over a single story. The building is inhabited by giant rats and a broken protectron, as well as the sexbot Fisto, controlled by a terminal (average).

The Cerulean Robotics key is found in the room to the right of the entrance. It's on the floor in the southern corner of the room between the couches, in the hand of the skeleton near the TV. (The remains of an ancient Protectron fight with a now deceased-worker.[1]) This key unlocks the tool cabinet, found in the north corner of the building, containing the terminal access card. The terminal access card is used on the protectron programming interface terminal if the player doesn't have 50 Science skill with or with out aid (Programmer's Digest, Mentats, or science boosting gear). The terminal is used in the Wang Dang Atomic Tango quest to program the sexbot.

To access the building and get the Lying, Congressional Style book, you need to go a roundabout way.

  • The name of the business may mean something like "Dirty Robotics." In entertainment, "blue" can refer to content that is vulgar or obscene, and "cerulean" is a shade of blue. So "Blue Robotics," in that sense, is the place where you get the sexbot.


Cerulean Robotics appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
