I saw the title on that link, and my brain refused to read it correctly. Instead it went with eyelids, because why would anyone do that to themselves? Then I saw that yes, it was the eyeballs. W.T.F?  ???

I see a major flaw in the design.  The keys and keyboard only exist on the arm when you are looking at it.  If you're going to have ant speed, you need to be a touch typist.  I.e. not looking at the keyboard.

The problem with Shadowrun's depiction of AR is the nature of the medium—words and still pictures, But people couldn't have functionally changed that much and anyone who talks about about social/cultural evolution accelerating from decades to years is a huckster selling horseshit, and the reality is that in Shadowrun the average person is functionally illiterate  except as being iconographic literate (As an aside, the dominance of Japanese for decades would further instill the important of pictographic communications over the relatively simplistic Latin alphabet).

Wuxing to purchase Fidelity one day?


Sorry for the crappy camera phone pic.  I was in the lobby and in a hurry.  But a large financial institution displaying the Feng Shui design in the lobby just struck me as so VERY Wuxing that I had to take a pic of it to share.

Note: the author is not commenting on wether an investment firm employing the practice of Feng Shui is a good or bad thing, merely that it is a case of the world reflecting this game we all love so much.

You mean IRL? Because Wuxing does own Fidelity in Shadowrun.

* Zweiblumen fails at SR lore

I didn't know Wuxing owned Fidelity in SR :)  But yes, this was IRL.
