Project Raiden

// Abstract //

Transcending human abilities with the use of applied technology and physics to deliver applications that were not deemed possible before. Power [as a verb] is to supply [a device] with mechanical or electrical energy. Energy in the form of raw electrodes have been manipulated in our gadgets.

It is time to visualise this raw energy from the perspective of human fingertips.

Key words: transcending, power, energy, electrical, manipulation, fingertips.

Project Raiden is an interpretation of a world built on new augmenting technology. It is about harnessing the phenomenal, the supernatural and the science fiction and putting it into the hands of man to create a new user in order to achieve new applications that were not feasible before.

I wanted to prove that if we can place lighting inside our fingertips then fire, water, wind and other super natural forces of great magnitude can also be inherited into our bodies in order to force evolve our abilities to transcend humanity.
