I still don't know whatt's happening. Are they robots and that is how ponies in Equestria are made, or are they specially trained new Cyber Ponies Celestia made to patrol areas like Ponyville while still fitting in and keeping an eye on the subjects?
This is the personified version of doctor who in a way. In Doctor Who there are these things called 'Cyber men" which are humans that have their brains put into these robots, which is what's happening here; ponies being turned into cyber ponies.
I wonder how it would look with the cable-mane sort of dripping down onto the floor and then into the mainframe instead of being straight back? It'd look more like hair, but that'd look too pony-like, I guess. *shrug*
