So that's the idea Esteban's wife had for the invisible cloth stuff? It does make nice for accents on things. And I must say, Esteban is a lucky man...robot..dude.

It's just one idea of many...

Yeah I just have a bump. I feel like I'm seven again or something.

And I imagine she could do all kinds of things with the fabric because of her CLASS (which we seem to agree certain people have none of in this story). Especially with her summer attire she seems to wear a lot of. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with, if you decide to now and then.

Kavya has done a nice job with the optical camo cloth Miwa gave her. Very elegant!

It's fun to think "how would someone with some hint of CLASS wear this stuff?"

cattservant
As depicted so far, CLASS is a little thin on the ground in Nowheresville.
I hope we can see a bit more Fashion and Style soon!

Did Gisele get a new body or only a skin upgrade?

New body, same brain.

So this is her third body then?

Who are Gisele's parents?

I forget...

Her 'Mom' is mentioned but not named by Jim on Page #148 panel 7.

Her mom is an untalented wannabe roboticist who has no role in the story.

So that was why Gisele had an atypical body with no skin.
Wait! "New body, same brain". Not like Gretel then?

She didn't get any older. A human equivalent would be a medical procedure to fix your heart or something, rather than the human equivalent being "getting older".

Literally invisible underwear!

This material could easily make the world's creepiest bikini.

They actually made a movie about that!

Not 'really' invisible though. You actually see whats behind it.* For an explanation of how it works take a look at Pages #066-069.

It's capable of doing a variety of things.

I didn't say transparent. ;p
JasperWB 6th Apr 2012, 5:08 AM edit delete reply

Now here's a thought I had. The material, in the form we have seen the most here at least, is invisible by having the ability to project the things around it, from it, in such a way that it makes it seems like what it covers isn't there at all.

Now then, let's say we looked on Esteban's wife's gloves so we were looking "through" the glove up her arm. Would we see the things behind her arm, like beyond her elbow plants and stuff, somehow inside her arm, or would the technology do like computer graphics do when they look into an undefined void and just show black space across the area up her arm where it is unable to gather the data?

@JasperWB: I left you a little reference to your cranial contusion on yesterday's Comments. (10:36 pm entry)

Uh, I'm not a minotaur but ok. I also don't think I'm a misinterpreted myth but...well I guess that one is possible.

For some reason, Gisele reminds me of Dick Cheney in panel 3.

(ironically, he just got his heart fixed)

... and that inspired me to do some... fanart... sorta..

Not gonna say "no" to fanart! I've added it to my staggeringly huge collection of fanart.

(Page #269 panel 1)
Cryptic Miwa: "Maybe I should model the cats."; Does she mean...
1. Use her basement full of supercomputers to understand and predict Cat behavior.
2. Learn to live her life based on Cat philosophy.
3. Create robot cats that would pay attention to her.
4. Make a series of Cat sculptures to decorate her park with.
5. None of the above.

Are you hoping for a Word of God?

cattservant 6th Apr 2012, 8:19 PM edit delete reply
cattservant
Very interesting and a good point. Miwa is a main character, and I dare say, very well developed in an iceberg fashion.
And, of course, Cats are a big button of mine!
However, I would just be happy with a small view-point from The Boss!*

I think I already saw you ask this question. I thought you were being humorous.
cattservant 6th Apr 2012, 8:35 PM edit delete reply
cattservant
There was a lot to absorb in Tim's reference.
I was being humorous and a little ironic too. But I am curious because Miwa is always the practial type.

(I moved the question forward a day.)

(And I am Happy now!)
