Today the team created its first Duplication interface: a magic wand.
It's basically a magic wand, with a slight difference. It is black in the middle, but yellow at both ends instead of white. One end has 3 black marks to indicate that its the front. The other end is the back.
To protect ourselves we have built safety sequences into the Duplication wand:
1. To activate the wand you have to scan your index finger in order on the front, middle and back sections of the wand in under 5 seconds. The wand is programmed to only receive Desmond's index finger at the moment.
2. To deactivate the wand is the same, except Desmond scans his index finger in reverse order: back, middle and front.
3. To replicate an object, he selects the object by tapping 3 times with the front of the wand, he selects the destination by tapping 3 times with the back of the wand, and he performs the replication using the front of the wand and circling above the object twice and flicking down once.
4. To delete an object, he selects the object (as above), and he performs the deletion using the front of the wand and flicking down twice and circling above the object once.
In future the wand will correlate to either hand, so that the wand becomes obsolete. The thumb will represent the front of the wand, the pinky representing the back of the wand and the palm representing the middle of the wand. The sequences will remain the same, unless testing results in changes.
