0015 Certainly Not a Pirate


In before the lock.

The comic updated on time. The streak is still alive. The news post is late.

There’s a lot of reasons for this. Over worked, over tired, and very sad about humanity. Let’s not discuss that, now.

I saw a post on IFLS (not linking it. Don’t feel like finding it) that’s had me rethinking some of the technology I meant to use. Specifically, a claim that a graphene analog (doped graphene. I’m not sure if it’s a graphene substrate with a dusting of atoms or something else) allowed the creation of a real floating hologram. It seems nigh impossible, but they cited previous work that had also done the same thing.

I started from the impression that such holographic projections just weren’t a thing that could exist in the real world. It seems I was wrong. This is going to significantly change certain aspects of the comic. I hope to find out more.
