Oozing around the pores and navigating the epidermal whorls of the fingertips like rats in a maze, bacteria slithers out across the nacreous surface of the screen, tracing the outline of an ergonomic gesture designed in a lab half a continent away. Black-boxed and hand-held, a 5G signal hops across the radio spectrum, is netted by a metal spire, and routed via fiber-optic to a server-farm miles out. Handshakes are exchanged, keys decrypted. Data is analyzed and calculated by algorithms. A response bounces back in microsecond clicks: “Gotta catch ‘em all!”
