After three years of using the Pygmalion app for lonely auto-men, Sel thought she’d seen most requests the app had to throw at her. She had top notch SYNOVA artificial legs, sensors grafted all through her central nervous system, and a great interface. With 9G nerve connections, any robot could share all her physical data in real time. They could see through her eyes. They could feel what she felt. Auto-people were always submitting requests in her queue for a direct link with her sensory inputs.
