In Which Necromancy Anon is Half Asleep
Hello! Necromancy Anon here, with more undead delights!
Building off of the separation of soul and body, at some point someone’s going to figure out a way to control a dead body’s motion via electronic signals to muscles and tendons. While I’m not sure of the science, you could theoretically implant electronic signal broadcasters across all major joints and support muscles, allowing some resemblance to movement.
A major point in this is that the major muscles have to be somewhat connected. If the leg muscles have been removed or deteriorated, it won’t do anything at all. Another possible problem for these people is controlling the movement. Maybe video game controllers?
Of course, someone else is going to find a way to do the same, but probably using magic to create connections. At some point, this would either lead to a very impressive movie stunts, or would lead to a new military monstrosity.
Just imagine a cult getting their hands on this type of technology….
