Chan Ranbir: “There’s Nothing To Fear!”

December 11, 1885 ·

Development of  the Clockwork Project will now move at a slower pace, according to Chan Ranbir, Head of Development, at the Department for the Advancement of Sciences.

This was his first appearance since the government department closed its London offices after a dispute with trade unions over job security.

When asked what the future holds for his dream of a ‘Clockwork World’, he said “We must win the hearts of the public, there’s nothing to fear. Our Clockworks will change the world. One day, everyone will have a mechanical domestic servant – but not just yet.”

He said the Clockwork Project is alive and well, but more effort will be made to highlight the benefits of the technology. He declined to say where he had relocated his development laboratory and laughed at the suggestion that he was now working with someone called “Chamberlain BCV6”.

When asked about the Clockwork prototype found in Liverpool, and allegations of occult practices at the government department, he said the device was schoolboy science, and that “not long ago people called science alchemy, someone is trying to drag us back to the dark ages.”
