James’ words gave Halvor quite a shock.
He did not expect James to be so bold.
“Can you handle the aftermath, James? Do you understand the consequences of striking these people? These are Sol officials who have demonstrated exceptional merit and service. Even though they are guilty, they made significant contributions to the construction of Sol. Sol will be in chaos if they are captured.”
“You don’t need to worry about that. I have the courage to do this. Naturally, I have strategies for handling the fallout,” said James nonchalantly.
Upon hearing that, Halvor took a few steps back slightly. It took a few seconds before he calmed down.
“You wouldn’t dare, James, you certainly wouldn’t! You don’t know how complicated the situation is! You’re an ancient martial artist, so you would know about Orient Commerce. If you persist on this, Orient Commerce won’t let you get away!”
“Orient Commerce?” James furrowed his brows.
“What the hell is this Orient Commerce?”
“I honestly don’t know.” Halvor pondered for a moment and said, “True, you are not a member of this circle. It’s normal for you to not knowing this.”
“Okay, enough of this nonsense. I’m only asking a question. What drew the Tuckson family’s attention, and what research did Blue Tech Corporation conduct?”
James did not inquire about the so-called Orient Commerce. He was aware that even if he asked Halvor, Halvor might not tell him. He intended to do more research later once he was out of there.
“A brand-new communications technology.” Halvor stopped hiding in response to this question.
“What brand-new communications technology?”
“With the widespread use of 6G, internet communications no longer satisfy the public. Currently, every tech company in the world is researching a type of new technology,” explained Halvor.
Upon hearing that, James’ interest was piqued and he asked, “What technology?”
“In the industry, it is called Z. This is a technology that goes beyond modern communications.”
James was getting a headache as he was listening.
Z… What a load of nonsense…
“Speak in words that I can understand…”
“Give me a cigarette.” As he watched James puff on the cigarette, Halvor’s cigarette addiction also surfaced.
He had been imprisoned for more than two months. He had not smoked in two months.
James casually handed over the packet he had on him, along with a lighter.
Halvor sat on the ground on the mat, took out a cigarette, and lit it.
“There is a type of phone chip named Z Chip. This chip is capable of virtualizing data. Simply put, when making an online call, the chip has the ability to memorize all of a person’s data and project it into reality… During the call, the phone will project an image of the other person, as if two people were communicating face to face.”
“It’s really that amazing?” James was stunned.
“This is just one of the benefits. When the Z network becomes widely used, it will digitalize the entire world, allowing everything to be virtualized. Even the creation of a virtual world will be possible. With the technology of virtualization, a virtual game world can be created. It won’t just be a game for your phone or computer. People will be projected as virtualized data and enter the virtual world with all of their senses functioning exactly as they would in the real world.”
When it came to Z technology, Halvor started talking non-stop.
After hearing about it, even James was intrigued and had to give his praise. This new technology was simply too amazing. Modern science and technology had advanced to the point where even such technology could be possible.
“So, Blue Tech Corporation’s research is linked to Z technology?” inquired James.
“Yes…” Smoking the cigarette, Halvor said, “Even though they’ve only grasped parts of it, or what might be considered the fundamental phase, once this technology is acquired, subsequent research will be much faster. Z technology can actually be developed in no more than thirty years-no, not thirty years, at most twenty years.”
