Show Notes

Replicant discrimination

Is racism the right word? Hate and discrimination against replicants. Replicant slavery.

Synthetic farming

Whatever that means. But in the meantime, let’s eat some grubs okay? The benefits of cricket and grub farming. Necessity breeds insects.

Solar concentrators

Hey these are neat

Replicant birth

Pooped out of the goo shoot. Like real life. And then replicants replicating themselves.

Space settlement

Thank you creepy Jared Leto. Tyrell’s original mission versus the cohesive effort lead by creepy Leto.

Digital Girlfriend

Narrow v general artificial intelligence. Awesome magic projector technology.

Data storage

DNA or other biological data storage. Holographic storage.
