The Heirotus-built Quantum Analogue Relay (QAR) is a highly advanced piece of real-time telecommunications hardware made possible by a combination of mass abstraction, crystal twinning, and classified advances derived from Judas Lang‘s “patent dump” of MBO-2.
Due to mass abstraction requirements the QAR can only be safely operated in space. The core of the device is a sphere removed from external mass influence, with its own gravity plane and atmosphere. The QAR operates by essentially creating the same environment in two places at once, allowing for realtime communication and interaction. Objects in two separate QAR spheres are – to human perception – effectively in the same QAR sphere. Individuals at the other end of a QAR session create a local Holt-Rischmann Variance.
