Dead Rite chapter 172.05


“Actually no, but it would be technically possible, especially if we used those coins with holes in the middle.”

“Hardly worth all the trouble just for the single one-liner, though, eh?” Dill fell silent for a moment. “Hold on, though. If we made a body using a series on interlocking tubes. He held his hands up as if he was wearing a virtual reality set, rotating one hand on the air whilst paging with the other. “If they could move laterally as well, say if they were filled with sand or oil, we'd have an immensely strong frame capable of almost infinite permutations of movement.”

“I don't follow.”

“Like the robotic arms built by Festo a few years ago, on;y they were pneumatic tubes.”

“Festo?” Harold was lost. He'd only come in to ask about the toaster and tell Dill about the new spirit.”That sounds like an Ice Lolly product.”

“It's a German engineering company. I'll have to check their patents before I design us a new body.”

“Us?”

“Me, I mean, though obviously I'll need your help in the consciousness transference.”
