When researching and writing THE C.O.D.E. CONSPIRACY, I found it fascinating that medical science has made strides with A.I. (artificial intelligence) that could someday replace passive prosthetic limbs with microchip activated hands, arms, and legs. Controlling tiny motors is easy enough, but the tricky part will inevitably come down to tapping into our nervous system’s electric pulses to control the movements.
As described in the book, nanotechnology advancements led to a microscopic processor with embedded artificial intelligence placed in the brain stem that controls nerve pulses, achieving the desired effect. Once this concept proved viable, it was just a matter of time before a villain would dream of an idea to increase the artificial strength with evil intentions. Hence, the Hypernoids were born, creating a host of moral and ethical issues worth fighting over.
