With the announcement of a-OS 4.0, Abstergo has been fielding a number of questions from the public, but the most common is why a company with a main focus on pharmaceutical development needs to explore the past in such great detail with the Animus.
Abstergo is committed to solving the toughest riddles in the medical community, with the most critical focus on eliminating antibiotic-resistant bacteria and super viruses. We know that rapid DNA mutations within these types of bacteria and viruses are what cause them to be resistant to pharmaceutical treatment, and that finding a way to stop these mutations from occurring will be the key to eliminating them. Our scientists believe that uncovering the source of a particular virus and tracking its progress throughout history will allow us to map its mutations and discover a pattern or common occurrence. By tracking more than one at a time, we can see if there is a similar pattern that spreads across all mutations. With the Animus, not only can we truly see history as it unfolds, but also retrieve accurate, first-hand data of the progress of human diseases.
Abstergo’s ultimate goal, however, is to develop a nanobot that can be administered to a patient orally in a pill. Once in the patient’s system, it will be able to identify, track, study, and destroy any infection from a common cold to cancer!
Exciting news from the R&D division of Abstergo: a-OS 4.0 coming later this year!
After extensive work with Project Legacy and the Animus DDS, Abstergo engineers have just about completed the software code that will allow users to explore the DNA memories of anyone in history! Thanks to our Animus testers and users from around the world who have given consent, Abstergo DNA databases have been loaded with enough information to make this exciting opportunity possible. Imagine being able to relive the memories of people who actually lived during some of history’s most exciting times! Live as a painter during the Renaissance, a revolutionary during the French or American Revolution, a pirate in the West Indies in the exploration of a new continent…the possibilities are endless!
Stay tuned to our blog for more information as it becomes available. a-OS 4.0 is scheduled for consumer release on 29 October 2013!
Thanks to our engineers’ work with Project Legacy and the DDS, Abstergo is about ready to venture into a new area of simulation with the Animus. After almost 20 years of studying users in the Animus and compiling DNA memory, there is enough information to start forming simulations of alternative history.
Alternative history or “Uchronia” refers to a work of fiction regarding the timeline of our world if an important historical event had occurred or ended differently.
Perhaps it is better explained in an example. Within the first months of 2013, Abstergo will be releasing an add-on program for the Animus that will allow the user to live in a time when checks and balances fail in the newly formed United States of America. Instead of adopting a democratic presidency, George Washington names himself King of the newborn nation and imposes a tyrannical, power-drunk rule.
The Tyranny of King Washington will be the first of what we hope will be a series of add-ons with more to follow. Just another way for you to Enjoy Your Animus!
Due to some unforeseen technical difficulties, the launch of the EYE-ABSTERGO Satellite has been delayed until further notice. Be sure to keep up with our blog for this and all news stories and notices.
