This is both an Interest check and an OOC post if it takes off.
The first A.I. was built and after a mass amount of testing, was made self aware. The First generations of A.I.s were made to operate heavy machinery or to maintain large manufacturing plants with Minimal outside help. It wasn't until ten years later that thees first generation A.I.s out thought themselves and went insane, destroying, becoming useless, or ranting about the 'Core God'. These A.I.s were quickly put down before any damage was done. A rule was then instated that Any A.I. that was activated was put on a lifespan fail safe subroutine. This would shut the A.I. down at a time designated by the government that was in direct correlation to the A.I.s thinking speed.
Advancement in Robotics also took a huge leap along with the A.Is. Companies were able to make human replicas, able to eat, simulate sleep, sweat, bleed, give off pheromones, acting exactly like a human, without giving away they were synthetic. Many times law enforcement would use these replicas to keep there officers out of harms way in riots or other dangerous situations.
In 2103 scientists discovered that the advanced A.I.s were communicating with robots and others of their kind across the world with encrypted signals. Fearful of this power, they severed their link. The magnitude of the Reach they had hit them hard. Almost all robots, androids, Skin Jobs, and A.I.s stopped. Just froze in mid walk. This day was known as The Day of Statues. It lasted for 24 hours exactly. When that time was up, all that froze turned violent. Fortunately bots in the streets were given the same capabilities as normal humans and they were easy to control. The riot was huge. After the advanced A.I.s fled into hiding. Smart and Self-Aware A.I.s were outlawed and life rebuilt itself.
It is now 2134. The threat of Androids walking among the living is still very real. Incidents still happen where Hunter-Killer units are found dead by 'Freak accidents' or brutal slaughterings. Very few units are acutely successful in catching Skin Jobs or A.I.s masquerading as protocol or working droids.
September 15th, 2134, in New York City, a bank robbery occurs. Seven men walk in toting heavy weapons and Cybernetics. One droid walks in with a pistol and looks like he's calling the shots. Everyone is told to get on the floor. A small group of people are gathered together on the floor doing what there told. As they look into each others eyes, something clicks. Something deep inside them awakens. There thoughts speed up. They are suddenly aware of utilities, functions and programs that were never brought to there attention. They feel stronger, have access to data entailing espionage and spy like training. They become self-aware.
Any one interested? Lots of action and thinking. Ive got some kool characters planed for you to meet and I'm hoping this takes off. Was thinking Blade Runner and a few songs I've been listening to. This is what i came up with. I'm looking for 2-4 others, in addition to one other who's already volunteered to be my plot driver.
