The Rebel Alliance
Fast Forward to 21st March 2019. In a huge white room in Derby were around fifty of the brightest brains in the world, representing megacorporations like Microsoft, Intel, Dell, DXC, and Accenture. Everyone was a bit of a rebel – this was the ultimate Rebel Alliance. And the revolutionary program of research everyone had just committed to deliver was exactly what I had dreamed of a year-and-a-half before. It was gobsmackingly unlikely – straight out of a Hollywood Sci-Fi blockbuster – but it was really happening.
And, sure enough, I found myself as the Guinea-Pig to be turned into the world’s first complete cyborg (although, as Rolls-Royce were providing the room that day, they politely called me Chief Test Pilot instead).
As it was, the timing was ideal to be upgraded to Peter 2.0. Thanks to some pioneering work by the NHS, I’d recently been perfectly replumbed to become a cyborg.
