I had to manage some tsundoku on the end of one of the couches and move an organised sand to clear off valuable top-of-desk space in my area to make room for something else we were doing. There were gadgets that looked very Balthasarian, like a little Arduino box with two antennas, looking like a Wifi repeater (which amazingly turned out actually to be true).
Someone started announcing that they were going to demonstrate something that the engineers were working on, and anyone should leave now if they want peace and quiet, whatever that means. Then they started telling a story which at one point identified someone's name as "Pino e Grigio", a pun on pinot gris and on "egregious". (How does punsawing work when the puns are involuntary and subconscious?) Around that time I was saved by aufmolpt.

I like how the "pavement" seems to alternate between classic gray and vibrant yellow. Perhaps there's a message being encoded there too

That seems to fit our existing knowledge quite well. The tank truck might be returning used battery fluid to the sea1. The needed ingredients would all be pretty easy to get in the hypothesised technological future of this mustardbotworld (The bots could be scavenging old landfills for the various types of scrap metal useful for electrolysis). (But wouldn't it be easier to just pump semencoffeecancerbabiesonice out of the sea1(mencoffeecancerbabiesonice) rather than carefully lowering these things down into it?

or Alternative message-decoding,
or All four!

Message is over. Removing one frame because of what balthasar_s noticed, the full message would be:
which seems to be essentially "— . . . - - - . . ." and as others have already said, I think perhaps the long one at the beginning is to get the observer's attention, and then we have a Morse code prosign "SOS".
(Fun fact: <EEEEEEE> is a Morse prosign. How RELATED!)
