LONDON SCIENTISTS SHOCK CIVILISED WORLD: COULD WE MANUFACTURE CLOCKWORK MAN?

February 27, 1885 ·

 

London and the civilised world was in uproar today as news was leaked that – if true – shakes the foundations of everything that we currently understand to be true.

For some time now, the Government’s Department for the Advancement of Sciences has been working with engineers and scientists to develop the cutting edge of new medical devices – clockwork limbs, artificial lungs and other more strange and experimental devices – many of which have proved to have been of great benefit to our heroic veterans of the Saryn War.

However, this morning, a more startling breakthrough has been announced: That inventors and engineers funded by The Department for the Advancement of Sciences have, for the past four years, been working on a fully functioning, self-aware automaton. Progress, it is rumoured, has been swift and smooth – and they are thought to be ready to unveil the relevant designs and prototypes at the upcoming “Tomorrows World, Today!” exhibition on the 6th March, at the offices of the London Necropolis Company, Arch No. 10. Bermondsey St Tunnel, London. SE1.

So far, there has been public amazement and outcry, particularly from senior members of the Church of England, who have expressed deep concern at the possible theological implications; and have assured the public that they will be sending representatives to the exhibition.

Clarence House has remained characteristically silent on the matter, but it is certain the swift development of new medical procedures will not go un-noticed by physicians currently attempting to aid Her Majesty’s rapidly failing health.

Emissary for the Queen, Lady Frobisher Pilbeam, is thought to be preparing a statement to deliver to the exhibition’s attendees.

If you have a view on this, or are planning to attend Tomorrow’s World… Today! Contact us, we will buy your story.


The London Gazette will be sending photographers and journalists to the event and will endeavour to investigate this matter thoroughly. We aim to bring you all the news as we have it.
