A talented whitehat hacker from the near future (around 2050), through events outside their control, ends up somewhere between 100 and 1000 years in the future. They have no idea what time they ended up in, except that it's in the future because the area they landed in is a military base full of exotic materials and inventions. The event that caused their transposition in time was a failed military experiment. Obviously they're arrested, but only after they almost managed to escape the base. They carry with them a smartphone, a smartwatch and smart eyewear, all with a personal AI (imagine Jarvis from the Iron Man films) they grew himself. Because of the experiment, these smart devices have basically been molded into their body, so they're basically a cyborg.
How can this person figure out what time they landed in, and how much more advanced the technology is?
The main things I'm wondering about:
- What signals or input can their smart devices and AI notice to get an idea?
- What can they personally tell from their surroundings and their capture?
- During their debriefing after their capture, what questions can they ask? Assume that the military does not consider them harmful and is willing to answer his questions to make him feel at ease.
