connecting with an Avatar
|Behind the scenes|
A link unit is a box that contains a bed-like mattress with the difference that it is framed by warm fluid gel packs that roughly depict the form of the human body. Its look is strongly reminiscent of a coffin. A link unit is about 2.5 meters in length and has an upper clamshell that is closed while the unit is in operation.
Link units are used to connect an avatar operator to his or her avatar. It creates a psionic link that allows to temporarily transfer the consciousness from a human body into an avatar, giving the operator control over all its muscles and senses. Once the link is established, the operator can use the artificial body as if it is their own.
