The Red Planet

Not so far from our beautiful blue and green planet there is a red one that makes all of humans dream about settling down on it. A man, is trying harder then anyone else to get there the first, the Musk family last born. But hold on… looks like something is already moving over there! We can’t see really good with the powerful red and fluorescent green gleam coming out of it. Anyway the future Martian colonists cannot bring their building materials with them, but will have to utilize resources they can obtain on-site for construction and shelter.

Flooded by radioactive green water being there since billions years, the redish of the soil and rocks is astonishing. On top of that there is places with some dark red buildings having a sharp architecture that does not look friendly. Millions of small autonomous Uber vessels are constantly moving back and forth because entities are traveling and exchanging a lot of bags.

Vitalik the Alien is helping the Bone Gang to fix their Falcon Heavy to be able to head to mars before Draculon Musk.

Yellow lights are glowing out of those sharp mega-structure and they never turn off their luminous rooms because martians never sleep. Their growth is increasing infinitely since million years now and their production capacities never stop dropping out something. Nominal GDP is 1000x the highest one on earth, which is the USA. Redish like the Communist flag, the Republican Party favorite color or the Lakota Sioux flag, there is a pretty well sophisticated slavery system with piece of papers and virtual numbers that is ruling them all.

And of course there is a beach to entertain and distract the herd, despite the fact that it’s hell hot, also there’s many bubbles with white smoke coming out of them when they reach the surface and pop. This fluo green liquid acidity is a bit high, therefor if you go in it as a normal human not used to it you’ll have your skin pealing. Martians love spending most of their free time having good moment all together on the red sand and deep inside the greenish radioactive water. Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ (All Are Related) like the Sioux ideology of “underlying connection” and “oneness”.

Somehow you will soon know what is happening on this red planet and what Scoobi and Draculon Musk want to do there. Colonizing Mars is definitely the goal for many people, let’s see what is going to happen…

The Laptop

A computer is no longer a computer as we knew it. We have become accustomed to seeing computers everywhere: at work, at home, from in our pockets, and from there, basically, everywhere. In today’s digitized world, laptops have become the ultimate workstations.

Developers, business men, armies, scammers, gamers, coders, travelers, backpackers, campers, students, law enforcement, astronauts and many more are using a laptop everyday

These electronic artifacts are also big part of our hurrying evolution as GPU are, but they are the main terminals we use to develop and code all kinds of scripts, scrappers, crawlers, sniffers, automation, virus, worms, threats, database, distributed applications, big data, IoT, blockchains, smart contracts, artificial intelligence and many more. In use everywhere, they make it possible for humans to create awesome virtual spells with some that are able to interact physically with the real world.

The First Laptop

The first portable computer was the IBM 5100, released in September 1975. It weighed 55 pounds (25 kg), which was much lighter and more portable than any other computer to date. It had a five inch CRT display, tape drive, 1.9 MHz PALM processor, and 64 KB of RAM. While not truly a laptop by today’s standards, it paved the way for the development of truly portable computers, i.e., laptops.

Alan Kay came up with the idea of the laptop computer in 1976 while working at Xerox PARC, calling it the Dynabook. He helped develop a prototype of his Dynabook, which was officially named the Xerox Note Taker.

The Grid Compass was designed in 1979 by Bill Moggridge (1943–2012) for Grid Systems Corporation. It was one-fifth the weight of any model equivalent in performance and was used by NASA as part of the space shuttle program in the early 1980’s. As far as technical specs, it featured a 340K byte bubble memory laptop computer system with a die-cast magnesium case and folding electroluminescent graphics display screen.

Gavilan Computer

U.S. engineer Manny Fernandez (born 1946) had the idea for a well-designed laptop for executives who were just starting to use a computer. Fernandez, who started Gavilan Computer Corporation, promoted his machines as the first “laptop” computers in May 1983. Many historians have credited the Gavilan as the first fully functional laptop computer.

The First True Laptop Computer

The computer considered by most historians to be the first truly portable computer was the Osborne 1. Thai born book and software publisher Adam Osborne (1939–2003) was the founder of Osborne Computer Corp, which produced the Osborne 1 in 1981. It was a portable computer that weighed 24 pounds (11 kg) and cost $1,795. For that, users got a five-inch screen, modem port, two 5 1/4 floppy drives, a large collection of bundled software programs and a battery pack. Unfortunately, the short-lived computer company was never successful.

💡Reminder: We will release 2 to 4 act per year. Some of the NFT created for each act will be airdropped to reward long term holders, diamond hands who are never selling Scoobi tokens, or at least not all their bag. Last episode of each act will be only available through Airdrop. You will need to hold at least 10M Scoobi to be eligible for the Scoobi NFTdrops. The weight of all holder is calculated by a custom-made algorithm which is taking in account amount of Scoobi held, the LP provided (which will give you a lot of boost to your weight) and the amount of time you have been holding those tokens. If you sell all the Scoobi you are holding, your weight level will not be reset to zero right away, but instead it will decrease slowly and gradually.
