OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

  • Manufacturer: EE&R, Inc.

  • Affiliation: Silver Jedi Order; Closed Market

  • Model: The “Little Birdy”

  • Modularity: None. Plug & Play.

  • Production: Limited

  • Material: Durinium/Clari-Crystaline Matrix; Nylasteel; Copper Wiring

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Ghostwave Technology: The entire device is built to be untraceable through modern means of counter-surveillance. The device operates by transmitting a powerful beam of information which hijacks Holonet Transmissions present in the area.

  • Nature’s Blueprint: With assistance from the SJO’s Medical Corps, who provided their knowledge in Cellular Biology, Quantum States, and the replication of human tissue in larger form, were obliged to miniaturize these breakthroughs into a form of data called DWOM (Dedicated Write-Only Memory). Half of the Cells available are strictly DWOM-Capable.

  • Electricity from Light - The remaining 50% of cells are specialized sensor-cells which collect light from the surrounding air & power the device. It does this by generating electrons through the use of a special dye which responds to light & produces electrons; this, in-turn, powers the device until it reaches critical mass.

Strengths:

  • State Of The Art: Nobody’s ever seen anything like it.

  • Tiny: The Little Birdy may be placed anywhere.

  • Simple Programming: The device is coded to exist in only one of two states. Active, or Passive. When it is passive, it is receiving data. When it is active, it is transmitting data. The device never remains Active for more than ten Galactic Standard Seconds.

  • Unknown Destination: There’s no knowing where it’s all going.

Weaknesses:

  • To deactivate & render inert, the user must be in close range (within 10 meters) to deliver a single-wave transmission by any device using the Holonet as a broadcast link; doing so deactivates the device until “reawoken”.   

  • The Little Birdy only operates on two modes of data collection; Auditory, and Visual. It can see, and it can hear.

  • Completely random broadcast times: Depending on the amount of information the cells have retained, it may take only a small amount of input to trigger a device’s active state - which effectively renders it unable to record for the full length of its Active Cycle. Provided it is still receiving a power supply, it will begin recording again.

  • Large Amounts of Data quickly: With constantly daily use, the device may produce large amounts of data very quickly, often requiring a substantial dedication of time & energy to sort.

  • Ambient Light Required - Even just a small amount of light will power the device; it may not recieve visual data, but it may receive audio.  

DESCRIPTION

 The “Little Birdy” was developed by joint-effort across the Order, developed in secret and crafted under lock & key. The device is a closely-guarded secret, and is available only to select members of the Order; Namely, the Jedi Shadows, who may use this device during operations of every kind. The device may be placed anywhere, and is easily deactivated by single-wave transmission at close range. It was designed to be a “one & done” approach to standard surveillance needs. With constant use, the device typically will enter “Active” Mode once every 2 to 3 days.
