1182 Cleaning Up Your Own Messes[God Lu, you haven’t posted on Weibo for a long time! If you don’t post something, you’ll become irrelevant. So please hurry up and do a prize giveaway or something!]
[God Lu! Please do an HV-1 giveaway on Weibo!]
[Everyone else is doing giveaways. (cry)]
[Professor Lu, want to be my online boyfriend?]
Although it had been a month since the Phantom system went online, the hype around virtual reality technology had yet to die down.
Yesterday, Penguin just released a Star Wars-themed VR game. Today, Alibaba announced a fantasy masterpiece that was in the works…
It seemed like the future had arrived in an instant.
However, in contrast to the high demand from the people, Huawei, Xiaomi, or other manufacturers that had entered this field had limited production capacities. Even if they were to produce at maximum capacity, they still couldn’t meet the demands of the market.
People felt envious as they watched others post their VR experiences on Weibo and Tik Tok. Others even recorded their gameplay and uploaded it online.
The Calan Empire game was going to launch in two weeks. This was a legendary open-world game developed by Star Sky Technology, said to be generated by an artificial intelligence program. It also had no in-game purchases.
As the first MMO VR game in the Phantom System, most people were fascinated by the huge open-world and gorgeous scenery, as depicted in the trailer. People had been looking forward to this game ever since it was in its closed beta testing stage.
Over the past month, Lu Zhou received a ton of private messages, some were asking him to promote a product, others asked him if they could buy a helmet from him.
When Lu Zhou looked at the messages and mentions, he smiled and shook his head.
I’m not the one making the helmets, why would I be selling them?
As for promoting your product…
What a joke, do you really think I need the advertising money?
After Lu Zhou finished his quantum computer project, he finally fulfilled his goal from last year. His work began to slow down.
Of course, that didn’t mean he was staying idle.
He had been thinking about the Moon over the past few days.
The last part of the Control of Earth and Moon mission chain.
He needed to build a 50-ton mass driver to launch materials mined on the Moon directly into the lunar transfer orbit.
Although this sounded simple, after all, someone just had to “shoot an object at a miraculously high speed”, the difficulty of this project was actually tied to a series of technical difficulties in particle physics, rail transit, and aerospace construction.
This was also one of the most important research projects of the Lunar Orbit Committee.
In fact, this project itself had nothing to do with Lu Zhou. After all, Lu Zhou was in a different field of research. However, without his help, the research and design units that were in charge of this project had yet to make any substantial progress so far.
If he continued to wait around like this, it would take forever to complete this project.
Lu Zhou decided to take matters into his own hands.
Even though this wasn’t his field of expertise, he still had 10,000 general points to use if he ran into any troubles.
His top priority right now was to understand the progress of the project. It might be best for him to try and find out what the bottleneck was…
Lu Zhou was lying on his sofa, playing around on his phone. A drone flew over from the kitchen.
Xiao Ai: [Master, you have guests. (✿゚▽゚)]
Lu Zhou: “Who?”
Xiao Ai: [Not sure, but Xiao Ai can find out for you! (๑•̀ᄇ•́)و]
Lu Zhou leaned over and sat up on the sofa.
“No, it’s fine, I’ll just go see myself.”
He knew exactly what Xiao Ai was going to do.
Xiao Ai was going to search the entire internet just to find out who this person was.
Xiao Ai’s abilities had improved ever since it was moved to the quantum computer.
Considering the fact that this person might come from a high-level political position, it was better for Xiao Ai to stand down and avoid any trouble.
After asking Xiao Ai to open the front gate, Lu Zhou walked over and opened his front door.
“Hello, Academician Lu!”
A well-built man was standing at his doorstep. The man raised his hand and saluted Lu Zhou.
Lu Zhou looked at the man’s body language and knew he was probably a high-ranking individual in the military. Lu Zhou smiled and asked, “Can I help you?”
“I’m here to deliver a letter.”
Lu Zhou immediately knew what was going on. He stepped aside and said, “Come on in then, I’ll help you… Oh yeah, do you want something to drink, a coffee?”
Hearing how Academician Lu was planning on making a coffee for him, the man quickly declined politely.
“Oh, no, thanks, water is fine.”
“Warm or cold?”
Lu Zhou scratched his head.
As a mathematician and physicist, uncertainty was one of his biggest annoyances.
Lu Zhou asked Xiao Ai to prepare a cup of warm water and made a cup of coffee himself. He brought the two cups into the living room.
He placed the two cups on the table and spoke to the man on the sofa.
“Where’s the letter?”
After the man handed over the letter, Lu Zhou checked whether there were any signs of the letter being opened before. He then took out the letter and glanced at it.
As expected, the first half of the letter basically praised him for his contribution to the country and society.
However, the second half of the letter stunned Lu Zhou.
Jesus, they’re kicking the ball back to me.
But then again, now that I think about it, I seem to be the best candidate.
Lu Zhou sighed and stuffed the letter into his pocket. He stood up from his sofa and spoke to the man.
“Wait a second.”
Lu Zhou went to his study room upstairs and took out a wooden box from his drawer. He went back into the living room and placed the box on the table.
“Deliver this back for me, be careful.
“Also, by the way, as the inventor of this technology, I hope it can be used for peaceful purposes. I hope it can be used in the right place.
“Otherwise, things can go very wrong… So, please keep it safe and use it properly.”
The man picked up the wooden box and nodded solemnly.
“My word is my bond.”
