What does FNIX stand for?


#1

Just curious, what do the letters stand for. Thanks.

Story spoiler warning.


Summary

I don’t know what the letters mean, but FNIX is the operating system (similar to UNIX) that the Machines are connected to. It was meant to be a neural link that a human operator can use to control them in the field, but it didn’t quite work out that way. The latest models (aka the black-painted machines) are supposedly directly linked to the system.

Thanks! The black painted machines? I’m familiar with the 3 types–I thought the gray and red were the FNIX versions.

Grey, black… The dark ones with red cables :stuck_out_tongue:
