Some unfortunate soul has ended up like Cliff Steele from Doom Patrol; his brain has been removed from its original body, suspended in a vat of life-sustaining liquid, and wired up to a new, robotic body.
Thing is, Doom Patrol kinda failed to explore some of the more physical consequences such a procedure might entail, such as phantom limb syndrome.
Thus, I pose this question;
What might these physical consequences be for Cliff, or someone in an identical predicament?
Stuff to consider:
- The body has visual and audio sensors and a speaker that lets it talk. However, the visual is a tad grainy at times, the sounds are a bit flat, and the speech is a little staticky.
- The robot body moves almost exactly like a normal human being, but please note the emphasis on the word almost. It doesn't have an animate face, for example, and can't do facial expressions.
- The body has no olfactory, tactile, or gustatory sensors, and in fact, does not require food or water. In essence, the body can't feel, smell, or taste stuff.
