Remote Personality Cache/Displays
( abbreviated RPC/D ) are artificial bodies used to temporarily host a person so they may communicate in real time
across vast distances. As of today the technology is prohibitively expensive, with prices only governments and megacorporations can afford.
Electrodes are placed on the scalp and chest of the client to encode the consciousness.
The consciousness is securely bundled and encrypted
The consciousness is transferred to the RPC/D at the speed of light.
The client is successfully uploaded and can now fully utilize the RPC/D.
The first RPC/Ds were little more than terminals, allowing communication through a visual display. These terminals were somewhat distressing to an intelligent mind, who is rarely mentally prepared to have most of their sensation and ability removed. Today they are fully customizable artificial dryware
bodies. The standard model resembles a typical human
physique with two legs and two arms, and an adjustable spine to allow for height variation.
Bundling, uploading and downloading a consciousness are all tasks that can only be preformed at a suitable facility, and require a multidisciplinary team of highly specialized engineers, neuroscientists and physicians. It is completely safe, provided no corners are cut.
No Delays in Communication once Telepresence is established
Communication cannot be intercepted
Uploading and downloading the consciousness safely and securely can take several hours
High maintenance requirements
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Could someone intercept me while I am being transmitted?
Your consciousness is safely and securely bundled and can only be uploaded into the designated RPC/D or returned to your original body.
Q: What happens if the RPC/D is destroyed while I am in it?
The RPC/D will send you back to your original body. While the transmission and download takes time, the RPC/D can instantly and safely eject you should anything happen.
Q: Can I live forever in an RPC/D?
RPC/Ds have a ten year warranty, and are not intended to be life extension devices. We also regret to inform you that a bundled consciousness still ages and has the same lifespan limitations.
Q: What happens if the power goes out at my destination?
The RPC/D has an emergency power supply. When it begins to run low, the RPC/D prioritize your safe return.
Q: What if my body dies while I'm uploaded?
In the extremely unlikely event that your body dies, you will be provided a RPC/D free of charge to host you.
Q: What happens if the transfer fails?
If the transfer should fail at any point, you will be safely returned back to your original body.
