All my faults


Image of me, with things pin-pointing to parts of the body.

Complain about and define

-Data-processing unit:
Handles two languages and simple mathematics.
Very slow to reprogram.
Decision-making unit frequently offline.
Creative and capable of independent thinking, but more often than not these features can be useless and even damaging to its running program.
-Sensory devices:
Non-recording cameras, not very sharp (frequently need replacement lenses) and can't zoom. Audio sensors selective, non-recording and playback is not accurate. Smell and taste mediocre, over-sensitive to strong smells and flavours. Sense of touch adequate, sometimes even has to rely on it, although can't make physical contact with some substances without damage.
-Connections:
Usually instantenous when coming from the sensory systems to data-processing, but sometimes offline when going from data-processing to audio playback.
-Rotation of sensors:
180 degrees, at any given time there is a blind side.
-Central structure:
Well designed, but fragile. If broken, replacement or repair takes at least two weeks, sometimes damage unfixable.
-Covering:
Substance used to cover the unit is vulnerable to acidic substances, radiation from the Sun, insect bites and some plants.
-Exhausts:
Gas, liquid and solid forms.
-Pacing centre:
Constantly broken, yet irreplaceable
-Gripping units:
Nimble and delicate, do not function in extreme heat conditions (too cold nor too hot), vulnerable to damage.
-Mobility:
Quite agile, becomes overwhelmed by terrain only in the most extremes of conditions
-Support:
Generally well-balanced on a delicate system of intricate design that uses arches for weight support.
-Size:
Unit is foldable to about half its usual size, but it is not operatable nor storeable while folded.
-Leaks:
5-6 usual leaking spots, plus any rough treatment to the covering will also cause it to leak.
-Fuel:
Average fuel consumption in quantity, but fuel highly versatile in quality.

-Lungs
-Muscles
-Arms
-Legs
-Feet



I'm not quite sure how to do this.
It coud be interactive, like the buttons-thing. So clicking on the image would reveal all these pointers. It could also be animated to show everything in sequence, but that could be a little boring...

Future planning
-at some points dim the figure and show a splash-animation of the topic in question on top of it (animating hands, for example, independent from the figure) This means I'll have to:
-re-faff the frame-stuff. Text as slow as it is now, splashy animations on dimmed bg with th regular framerate.
-sound. Music or the text read out loud or something. Or something else. Woman talking? Woman-sound not speech? Woman talking and laughing and living but heard so unclearly that is just mumble?


Splash-animations
These are about the topic that the text speaks of.
-Data-processing unit:
Fade in an image of the brain, bring it up to zoom, rotate and highlight different parts of it (langauge center, logic, learning, creative etc...)
-Sensory devices:
Splash arrows about the eye, nose-mouth and ear (cross-sections) No dimming.
-Connections:
Like in the book, oranges flowing across the figure. No dimming.
-Rotation of sensors:
?
-Central structure:
Fade in a skeleton on top of the figure, and fade out. No dimming.
-Covering:
?
-Exhausts:
Nothing
-Pacing centre:
Fade in a heart (heart-shaped, not organ) on top of the figure, a few pumpings. No dimming.
-Gripping units:
Dim and animate some hand action. Same as in "Cyber" entry?
-Mobility:
?
-Support:
?
-Size:
?
-Leaks:
Just highlighting the leaking parts (eyes, nose, nipples, crotch, mouth?)
-Fuel:
Fading images of food in and out?


Bits that need attention:
- Brain-splasher (it doesn't even exist yet x_X)
- Nose-mouth -splasher also doesn't exist
- Nerve-system. Need to reconsider original idea. Maybe some flashy lines will be enough?
