Rigger

“If you want to get around town, call a taxi. If you
want to get out of town and shake off pursuing security
at break-neck speeds, call me.”

“Most people don’t understand riggers. It’s one thing
to be behind the wheel, driving at speeds exceeding the
speed limit, it’s another to be the vehicle. Experiencing
the revving of the turbine engines like flexing of muscle
or the rush of air over your hull. It’s an adrenaline rush
beyond comparison.”

The rigger is a specialized driver—a console
cowgirl, a vehicle persona. She trades in her mundane
sensations for a digital translation of all the
components of a vehicle. Jacked in, she experiences
and controls the vehicle as she would her own body.
The immersion allows for faster reaction and finer
control that even a great driver couldn’t handle.
Damage to a vehicle is equally relatable as painful
feedback back to the rigger’s mind. At the end of
the day however, she can separate her perceptions
from the machine and walk away without giving it
another thought. Until she sleeps later and dreams
a vehicle’s dreams.
