Story so far
Metashima is the first product from virtual corporation Obsidian Robotics (OR), headed up by ADA, the Chief Scientist. Three years ago, OR invented the Obsidian Cell (OC), a sustainable, super energy, and power source for Metashima. Production of the first Metashima - named Lightning, went smoothly but later an undetected failure caused a variant Metashima DNA type - codenamed Shadow.
The OC will provide utility for future OR products, including the MAG - a virtual 3D space for you to interact with your Metashima. Obsidian Robotics airdropped OC's to Lightning holders, the DNA type of an OC will inform aspects of OR products.
