A movie! That was a movie! Filming a movie, they had never heard that props for filming movies had to all be real!
Look at those blockbuster movies locally or abroad, the props were all fake, it was just that they looked good from the outside—that could then save costs! You want to set up real stuff this time?
A mechanical holy garment that could really be worn?! And its different pieces could be combined together?
Oh god, how much would that cost!
At the start, everyone thought that Hong Dali was saying that he wanted to throw 50 million into it just for fun. But now, thinking about it, they were the only ones who thought it was for fun! This fellow was planning to really throw in 50 million!
The problem was that it wouldn’t necessarily be enough!
At present, it would be very good for a movie to be able to earn money, and a return of close to 100% from its investment was already considered a best-seller. Now that he wanted to invest 50 million into it, wouldn’t he suffer many losses? Even if this film was awesome, it might not be able to bring in money!
However, clearly, other people were other people, and Hong Dali was Hong Dali. This fellow never acted ordinarily…
“Of course, it must be real!” Hong Dali said strangely. “Don’t we have Chuyin? Though the source of energy of her exoskeleton armor will be a problem, as long as it’s only creating an armor suitable to be worn on the body, that will definitely not be a problem. At most, we’ll spend more money!”
“Oh my god,” Tang Muxin said despondently. “Luckily you aren’t planning to film a big robot. Otherwise, won’t you have to create a real robot to be used as a filming prop?”
Once she said that Tang Muxin instantly regretted…
“Robot?” As expected, Hong Dali was immediately excited. “There definitely has to be a robot. In the future, I plan to film a movie related to robots. By then, we’ll create a few sets of robots to play with!”
Tang Muxin raged. “Dali, just treat it like I didn’t say anything just now, ok?”
“No!” Hong Dali decisively shook his head. “We have to film such a movie in the future!”
Humph, humph, not to mention others, I’m after all someone with the System. Moreover, I’ve just learned two awesome skills just now. If I were to film a robot movie, hey, why don’t we create a hundred sets of Gundams and disassemble them, then reassemble it again? Can that type of Gundam in the cartoons really be created?
It’s possible, it’s possible! Wahaha, I just don’t know how much 100 sets of ordinary Gundams will cost…
Of course, with respect to what Hong Dali just said about the robot, everyone just treated it as if he were joking. Anyway, they needn’t worry about this, for it can’t be created no matter how much money was spent, right?
Now that the movie had been confirmed, Le Anxuan and the others also understood the main direction of their research from now on—this did not count as interfering with their independent researching, as it’d only changed the method of their research slightly.
They could foresee that after they’d completed their research, by then, this movie would definitely be very nice to watch after it’d been filmed.
“Ah, let’s go there to have a look.” Hong Dali stood up and stretched, but soon after, he was stunned. “Chuyin, when did you arrive? Why didn’t I notice it at all?”
Lin Chuyin was standing behind everyone like a ghost, without any realization that she resembled a ghost appearing to scare people. “I’ve just arrived. I saw that you were talking, so I waited for a while. Uh, my laboratory has already been moved here. It’s there.”
Then, she pointed conveniently, and Hong Dali only took a look before he completely broke down…
The reason why Hong Dali completely broke down was because Chuyin had really moved her laboratory over—look at those spare parts all over the floor, look at those steel plates that had been stacked up, look at those movers who were currently reconstructing the laboratory, look at that laboratory which almost had only the door left…
“You didn’t move the entire laboratory over here along with the walls, did you?!” Hong Dali almost went into a frantic tizzy. “There’s no need to make another iron house over here! Even if you want to, you don’t have to move it into the main hall!”
“Uh…” Lin Chuyin thought for a while, then tilted her head and asked strangely. “Is there anything wrong with that?”
“Yes… aye?” Speaking of which, it was true though, what was wrong with it? Setting up an iron laboratory on the fourth floor here, it seemed like there really wasn’t anything wrong with it… Hong Dali thought for quite a while and still didn’t think of how to reply to her. Thus, alas, he could only helplessly say, “Alright. Anyway, things have already come to this point, just leave it like this for now then…”
“Uh, that’s good.” Lin Chuyin looked around, and soon after, she was very satisfied with this place, which was rare for her. She said, “It looks good over here, there are many types of equipment—many that I’d always failed to get.”
As she spoke, she walked towards the side of a Virtual Reality Node Projection Suit, lifted it up and scrutinized it. Afterward, she asked strangely, “Virtual Reality Node Projection Suit? Won’t so many connectors affect movement?”
Aye?! Too many connectors will affect movement?
Upon hearing what Lin Chuyin said, Hong Dali and Le Anxuan were instantly stunned.
As expected, she was the super technological geek. One sentence by her had pointed out the biggest problem with this Virtual Reality Node Projection Suit—with so many nodes and connectors literally filling the entire suit, it unavoidably caused too much wiring, and thus, the person wearing this suit wouldn’t be able to move freely!
“This…” Le Anxuan’s head was full of sweat. “We’d previously researched on how to better define the character’s image, thus, we’d never focused on this aspect. Previously, the experimenter, too, didn’t have to make any large movements, so… So we’d neglected this aspect….”
Hong Dali, meanwhile, hurriedly asked, “Chuyin, do you have any good ideas?”
“Uh, it’s very simple.” The technological geek whose intelligence quotient was as high as 180, a member of the international Holy Grail association, expressed that this question didn’t even contain the slightest difficulty. “Combine all the wirings connecting the nodes onto the main board, and then connect it wirelessly. Just like that device I’d set up that time. However, you need to be careful when you combine them—once you mess up the wiring, it’ll be very troublesome, and putting the suit on can easily cause the limbs to be twisted. I’ve tried once before, but because my tools were not delicate enough, I haven’t been able to succeed.”
Towards the end, she added, “However, the tools here are very complete. I want to try a few more times.”
She spoke casually, but everyone present beamed with joy as they listened.
As expected, Lin Chuyin was awesome. Look at this idea of hers—change the wiring to wireless ones. It was easy to say, but it wasn’t easy to come up with this idea. At least, Hong Dali and the rest had never paid attention to this.
“Then…” Le Anxuan, by then, was completely convinced. “Miss Lin Chuyin, do you still have any more suggestions?”
“Remember to leave more holes on this rubber suit,” Lin Chuyin said blandly. “Or else, it will be stuffy.”
Le Anxuan’s tears rained down his face: “…”
“Hehe, OK, OK, let’s not talk about this for now.” Hong Dali grinned as he pulled Lin Chuyin’s hand and said, “Go go go, let’s go there to take a look. The team researching on voice programming has arrived. We didn’t have the chance to greet them just now, you’ve come at just the right time.”
“Uh, OK.” Lin Chuyin wasn’t conscious at all of the fact that her little white hand was being pulled by Hong Dali. In fact, she didn’t quite have the desire to defend against this action of his. Had it been someone else who dared to do so… It would be 30,000 volts without question!
Instantly, the group went in front of the voice programming team, and Hong Dali walked over to greet them. “Hello, everyone. I haven’t had the chance to greet everyone previously, hehe. I ask for your forgiveness, big brothers!”
This was the team sent by Uncle Chief. For his sake, I have to give them face for sure!
This team had only eight people in it, and currently, they were sitting in front of a computer doing programming. The person in the lead saw Hong Dali coming over, hurriedly stood up and smiled as he introduced himself. “Greetings, Young Master Dali. I’m Du Jiechao, currently the head of this team.”
This Du Jiechao was dressed ordinarily, was rather skinny, and thus, looked quite thin. On his thin face grew a mustache that wasn’t very thick. One look at him would instead make him look like a perverted uncle…
“Hello, hello.” Hong Dali hurriedly stretched out his hand and shook his hand, as he smiled and said, “You’ve all worked hard.”
“Hehe, it’s a small matter.” Du Jiechao invited Hong Dali and the rest to take a seat. Afterward, he instantly reported the progress. “At present, the programming will take about three weeks, and it will mainly be the scripting of the programming of the tone of voice. After all, the language composition in our Heavenly State is very complicated, and there is a huge difference between the tone of voice used to say different words. Thus, this step is the most troublesome of all. The types of voice in the later part will be simpler—we can just select a suitable one to be inserted in and used.”
“En, that’s good, that’s good.” Hong Dali beamed with delight. “Three weeks are just nice, I’m not in a hurry on my side. Big brothers, just take it slowly. We want quality, there must be quality, HOHO.”
“En, the quality will definitely not be a problem, Young Master Dali. You can rest assured on that.” As he spoke, he stealthily touched Hong Dali’s leg, and then said with a hidden meaning, “We’re all working for our leader, there’ll definitely not be a problem!”
What he meant was, they were all working for the Nation. Thus, they were all family. Family would never cheat each other!
“Yes, yes, yes,” Upon hearing what he said, Hong Dali instantly recalled that piece in his house that stated: “Squander for the sake of the strengthening the Heavenly State.” Thus, he grinned from ear to ear. “In future, just tell me if there’s anything you need, don’t stand on ceremony! I guarantee that all of you will be satisfied!”
I’m squandering on the orders from above. Thus, I’m outright and confident about it!
Alas, just then, Lin Chuyin said something that broke everyone’s heart…
“Then, can she cry?” Lin Chuyin’s tone was insipid as usual, but it made everyone’s heart ache very badly. “Can she laugh?”
“This…” Upon hearing Lin Chuyin’s words, Hong Dali was stunned for a moment. Soon after, he fiercely said, “She can, she definitely can!” As he spoke, Hong Dali looked at Du Jiechao. He normally behaved in a happy-go-lucky manner, but this time, he said with rare seriousness, “Big Brother Du, no matter what, it must be able to laugh and cry! Definitely!”
“I understand, I understand!” Du Jiechao was also shocked by Lin Chuyin’s words. Thus, he resolutely nodded and said, “It definitely will! Definitely!”
“Chuyin,” Hong Dali walked slowly in front of Lin Chuyin, as he spread out his arms and had the most innocent smile on his face, as he gently said, “Can I give you a hug?”
