Logo A TC Company

The Tsuibo Orb is a Taichimora Entertainment Technologies (TET) is a Virtual Collective Experience inspired device for sharing treasured memories, it became available in YE 34.

About the Orb

The Tsuibo Orb was the idea of Jalen Sune as a way of storing and sharing a memory with others without having to enter the VCE. It creates a holographic and audio representation of the specific memory.

Tsuibo means 'cherishing the memory of' in Yamataian.

History

The Tsuibo Orb was conceived by Jalen Sune as a means to watch or share with others memories or images without having to be in the VCE. He developed the basic specifications and a proof of concept device which he presented to the Tamahagane Corporation. The designers took the device and made a number of minor enhancements to improve the design. After that they worked on aesthetics and addressed the appearance.

Appearance

The Orb looks like a crystalline sliced orange. There are eight wedges which connect to the core when not in use and sitting on the pedestal. The slices are reddish with swirls of color when not active, turned on the slices glow brightly. The pedestal is made of burnished aluminum. The core is a polygon with an exterior mesh and the main components glow when in use.

Operation

Tsuibo Orb

The Tsuibo has two modes of operation base and expanse mode. When in base mode it projects an image no larger then 6โ€œ wide x 8โ€ tall x 6โ€œ deep. This mode was intended at first for review, but was left in as a convenient way for the user to display the memories in a compact form. Base mode can be initiated while on its pedestal or free.

Expanse mode is for sharing the memories with a group or wanting a better experience. When activated the wedges detach and float out to a maximum distance of forming a 8' x 8' x 8' sphere in which the holographic images can be seen. This mode like the base can be initiated on pedestal or free.

Depending on the size of the display the Tsuibo can display in full scale for up to twenty minutes in a high ambient EM location such as a starship, space station, or office building.

Slices recharge by connecting to the core, or by ambient EM energy. The slices are per-programmed to dock with the core when their charge reaches 5%.

Loading

Active Tsuibo To load an image into the orb, it must be wireless synched to a VCE interface such as a console, chair or booth. The user while in VCE can select the desired memory or memories to be displayed. Once collected they initiate a download. The memory does not have to be of a true life event. Since the data is gathered in VCE, the user can select from their memory, dreams, fantasies or VCE content.

Memory Details

The owner has control of what is displayed. For example they could decide to load an event where a significant person said something to them, eg, a marriage proposal. They can select just the person, and have all other aspects removed. This reduces the size, and allows the playback to focus on just the person.

The owner can select still images or scenes, or they can have animated ones naturally. The Tsuibo can store up to a total of 30 minutes of animated memories. The owner can create 'playlists' to select specific stored memories.
