Yeah... I did a pretty bad job explaining stuff beforehand. I'll explain a little more now.

As it shows in my first post with Eva, brains are now integrated with computers, and eyes have cameras.
Roads are like http://solarroadways.com
Vehicles are electric, and are powered by those roads, along with buildings.
Also, robots exist, but I'll get to that later.
So, it's the year 2034. Most, if not all, citizens have computers integrated into their brains, called BCIs (brain-computer integrations... Not a very creative name. My characters call them "brain-computers" XD)
Most vehicles are driverless. Basically advanced versions of the driverless cars Google are making now, in real life.
I believe I, Robot
had driverless cars as well, for another example.
So, brains and cars both have computers in them.
Money is now completely digital.
Computers and the Internet are now major parts of society (even more than now, in real life). And that's why hackers are so bad.
Robots also exist, and, of course, they're controlled by computers.
I was trying to keep some of this stuff secret so I can surprise people in the RP when I reveal stuff and have plot twists and whatnot, but that's probably a bad idea, huh? People should understand all of this before the RP starts. Bad thinking/planning on my part.
Also, in the IC thread, I had one of my characters, Danny, tell Wolfsong's character, Andy, to meet him at a Walmart.
I probably should've chosen somewhere else. Not many stores still exist. Amazon and other services have replaced stores.
Right now, in 2014, Amazon has been testing drones to deliver packages to houses within certain radii of their warehouses. The RP is in 2034, so the drones have probably gotten popular and much more efficient.
There are only a few Walmart stores still around in the RP, and they'll soon go out of business as well due to these drone delivery services replacing them.
Why go to the store when you can order groceries with the computer embedded in your brain and have drones deliver your groceries to you within a few minutes?
Now, back to the robots.
There are police robots, but it's only 2034 so they still have bumps to rough out. There are still a lot of human police officers, since the police bots need more work. However, areas with high crime rates, like parts of New York (where the RP is currently taking place-- I also forgot to mention that earlier... I'm not a very good GM, am I?), have the police robots out patrolling 24/7.
The 2045 Initiative (http://2045.com
) has completed Avatar A, and they are one year away from rolling out Avatar B (the most important one).
In eleven years (2045) they will release Avatar C, but it's completely optional.
I don't think any of that will have very much to do with the RP, though... yet.
I've been imagining New York as really dark and gloomy as I write, just barely illuminated by lights on the sides of the road (powered by the Solar Roadways I linked in the quote above).
I just really rushed and briefly went over stuff. If you'd like me to explain more, just tell me.
Edit: Also, yes, we could use more RPers. Preferably an FBI agent, since I'm the only one with an FBI character.
I'm usually hesitant to have more than two people in a roleplay, since then we'd have to wait on more than one person, but just three people won't hurt anything.
