Synthetic Era Empty Synthetic Era

While the Anidroids are the latest line of android on the market, they are not the only products available. Previous entries includes but are not limited to the H2, the Meta and Ruo. The H2, or Hydrogen 2, was the first ( and only ) synthetic to fully rely on hydrogen power cell. It was not the first artificial being created by mankind, though it did marked a new beginning, being a step ahead of its time. The H2 was first launched ten years ago and to this day, 96% of the sold number are still running, a feat still unmatched. The H2’s design was unique, their hydraulic systems being painfully obvious with for only protection the frames received were thin uPVC covers, vaguely resembling human forms, though they were smoother with little to no variations in the curves; chests resembled eggs, the legs and arms looked like stretched teardrops while the heads closely matched human’s. All H2 were painted white with light grey frames, giving a very monotonous and easily forgettable design. H2s’ selling point were their reliability and as such, were mostly sold for outdoor usage. They quickly replaced general human workers, easily accomplishing any task not requiring special programing or instructions. Unlike the Metas, Ruos and Anidroids, the H2s were very limited in terms of personality and self-learning, making them very hard to sell to the general public, though it suited quite well for businesses as ‘’professional images’’. The H2 may have an incredible history to work under difficult circumstances, they proved themselves challenging to maintain esthetically appealing, their covers often cracking or melting. Ultimately, the H2s were not the first androids, but they were the first to be mass produced, launching the ‘’Synthetic’’ era by doing so.
Following the same year as the H2’s release, appeared the Metas. Bigger, heavier and customizable, the Metas aimed for a market the H2s had yet to enter: machinery. While the H2s was quickly replacing workers in offices, on construction sites and elsewhere, the Metas began replacing machinery. The very first model of Metas were sold with diesel engines, to be quickly replaced by bio-fusion engines, a ‘’greener’’ alternative. The Meta’s basic loadout resembled the H2 in many ways, but it was too often customized to keep any similarities once sold. Four arms, four legs, wheels, percussion hammers, saw blades were only some of the near endless accessories available. Again, history repeated itself with a product unappealing for middle class, limited to outdoor use and far too expensive. Only specialized organizations could afford them, but with minimal extra cost and very high efficiency, the Metas ravaged the machinery market. No longer would companies need to acquired different expensive equipment, when a single one could easily change its loadout to accomplish the same jobs. Replacing the thin uPVC body of the H2s were ¾’’ steel plating offering much better protection.
When it comes to luxury and exclusivity, the Ruo delivers. The first ever ‘’too real to be true’’ synthetic, it was the first line of android to come with gender-like bodies. Many models were available as well, ranging from a tall and large male model to a smaller, curvy female and everything in between. It offered skin-like stretching coverings, haircut of various colors, styles and lenghts, PBS nails, electronical optics unlike the mechanic ones of the previous entries, fully electrical systems, highly advanced self learning programs, tetra cores, fiber carbon and aluminum frames, programable personalities and more. While the Ruos never were designed with male or female genetalia, to insure an easier look from the general eye, they came fully clothed, a first once more in the industry as the past androids never required clothings. The Ruo model had a very specific goal, to ‘’make the cities human again’’. With a population of androids rising constantly and humans slowly decreasing as more and more opted for suicide due to loss jobs, the Ruos were an alternative to be seen as ‘’a friend for all’’ or even to replace family members in some cases. Sadly, due to its never seen before high price, the Ruo barely sold and the company in charge of manufacturing them shut down.
In an attempt to satisfy both the need for friendly, casual and much needed middle class robots and retain work capable aspect, the Anidroid line came to fruition. Light, relatively low cost, eco friendly, reliable, self learning, hive-mind and appealing, the Anidroids leave nothing behind. Appearing with both male and female models, the designs enters a never explored scene; animals. While the semi feline yet human body never changes, the paint finishes and patterns allows for cheetahs, panters, lions and more. Limited editions were also produced for military purposes, detailed in mate army green. To this day, the Anidroids have yet to make an impression of themselves. New on the market, only a minority can be found roaming in the streets, but it is definitive: If they are reliable, their low production cost will ensure the Anidroids mass production in a near future.
The last paragraphs is pretty bad, I’ll admit it. The first three are pretty decent.
