In 2043, DaVinci Meccanica won their first contract with the Foundation Society to build Alaskol, the first Big City on Luna. DaVinci Meccanica used this opportunity to finally test out their new product ARNO – a modular electronic platform, designed with the aim of increasing reusability. The success of ARNO onboard Alaskol prompted DaVinci Meccanica to further explore into the incorporation of modular and repurposed devices within their design plans, with a specific focus on the integration of a variety of wearable devices for the residents onboard their settlements.
ARNO modules may be designed to customer specification and are designed to fit within any standard clothing or accessory, provided the volume exceeds 3cm^3. Customers are required to detail the form factor with engineering drawings, including detailing the available enclosed volume within which to fit the electronics. Modules come at a cost of $1000 each, although a 5% reduction is offered if more than 25 identical modules are purchased, and 10% if more than 50 identical modules are purchased.
Da Vinci Meccanica are able to aquire ARNO modules for only 80% of the listed price due to their involvement in the design and manufacture of the devices.
