I'm the King Of Technology - Chapter 936
Days went by in a flash, and on October 7th, Landon and the rest finally arrived home.
After the wedding, they spent 5 more days in Carona, 2 & a half days to get to the sh.i.p.s, and 2 & a half more at sea.
And now, they were back just at the very start of the 2nd week of October.
One thing that made Landon happy was that everyone was now using the Baymardian sh.i.p.s.
Around the 3rd week of September, people could now move between Arcadina, Terique, Baymard and Carona as they pleased via ship.
It was now the fastest and safest way to travel around the seas.
What pirate dared stop the ship?
Even though it was a cruise ship, it still had its one security hidden within the lower decks.
Plus, with its speed, it could just avoid the pirate ship that relied on men that rowed them.
For William of Arcadina and Micheal of Terique, when coming to Carona, they actually made it here so fast due to the soldiers’ help.
One should know that bi-weekly and sometimes once every 3 weeks…. messages between all monarchs got circulated through the Baymardian soldiers, ensuring that the Monarchs communicated with each other.
In fact, if there were any major issue that was too difficult to handle, rather than sending someone on horseback for months, it would just be a matter of weeks, and they would be able to alert everyone else of any in pending dangers.
There was no helping it.
They didn’t have phones in their empires.
And, they paid a yearly fee to keep the soldiers going back and forth on such confidential missions.
After all, the letters they wrote were highly confidential and should never fall into the hands of enemies.
Anyway, both William and Micheal tagged along with the last message delivered and got to Carona’s sh.o.r.es.
From there, they headed to Santa’s estate there just as planned.
And of course, they were escorted alongside their men to the Capital using Santa’s horses and carriages.
But before leaving the Coastal city, they immediately booked Ship tickets to their empires for the 5th of September… according to Landon’s plans.
So after the wedding, they also spent 5 days in Carona’s Capital and followed Landon and his gang back to the Coastal city.
And when they arrived, Landon left the city with his own sh.i.p.s while they spent another night in Santa’s estate before finally leaving the next day with their scheduled sh.i.p.s to their respective empires.
They already had their men waiting for them within the Coastal cities in their empires.
So there was no need for them to worry.
Landon was thrilled when he saw several Baymardian sh.i.p.s on the docks setting sail towards the different empires.
It was really good.
Now, he was back in Baymard.
And while Skye and the prisoners were taken away, he had other pressing issues in mind.
“Your majesty! You’re back!
It feels like a month since I last saw you.”
“Well, it is. Good to see you too, Tim.” Landon said with a smile plastered on his face.
It really has been long.
He first left for his mission around the 7th of September… And now he came back on the 7th of October.
It was actually a month!
But who was to blame if not for the stupid system?
Tim was so excited to see him that he briefly hugged him and patted his back.
Between them, even though they were ages apart, they had real friendship.
“Your majesty, you arrived just in time!
Tomorrow is the scheduled day when the Vending machines and Money changing machines will be launched.” Time said excitedly.
He was so happy.
Finally, everything that they had worked hard to make would all be released sometime this October.
In his eyes, this month now looked like a blessed month.
Of course, they had to launch everything before Halloween.
Landon was happy as well.
“Well done, Tim! That’s good.
So, as of now, how many establishments have ordered them?”
Tim pulled open his drawer, took out a booklet report, flipped some of the pages before pa.s.sing it on to him.
“Take a look here, your majesty.
To begin with, just as planned, on the 10th of September, we held the product viewing show for the many companies and establishments in Baymard.
There, we explained the pros and cons of having such them within their establishments.
Like the academies, where the lineup in the Cafeteria is hectic during busy hours… The vending machines can relieve one of that.
After expanding things and showing them how to get food and other items from the machines, many were instantly drawn and in awe of them.”
Tim still remembered the shocked and dazzled look of everyone that day.
There were many goods in Baymard like the Tvs, photocopying machines and so on.
But, there had never been one like vending machines.
It was just too unique and jaw-dropping.
Apart from its awesomeness, what made them more willing to get them was because of the short presentation about their functionalities.
Time was money.
At times, people woke up late, planning to eat on their way to work or cla.s.s.
But when the lines are long, they would have to forgo their plans and go about their day in hunger until they had a break.
But now, the vending machines were here and could serve carefully prepared and packaged meals, drinks, microwavable food like Ramen in a cup, and even some grocery items like eggs, toothbrushes and so on.
This was great if someone wanted them very early before the stores opened?
Even on holidays when stores are closed, this could save many who forgot a few essential items.
Landon thought so as well.
After all, as a person from earth, he, more than anyone, knew the benefits of having vending machines.
He also discussed and approved 7 Street locations where businesses can also line up their vending machines.
Even though he very much admired the vending machine street lineups in Tokyo, j.a.pan… He didn’t want the city to become cl.u.s.tered, so he strategically chose locations that looked a little bit dull so that the colour designs from the vending machines could brighten it up.
Having them everywhere might destroy the beauty of the city.
But what he did like, were the variety of things one could get from the vending machines that were sometimes like savers.
From umbrellas for spring to socks, canned soups & beans, batteries, toothpaste and even neckties for those who forgot theirs when going for interviews or meetings… Many small but basic items could be placed within the vending machines.
Nonetheless, those who wanted to put their vending machines there needed a government permit to do so.
Anyway, all 7 streets that he chose obtained to the commercial Districts around.
2 will be in District C, 2 in District D, and 3 within District G.
His primary goal was to keep the city as beautiful as ever, no matter what got made.
Even though the city had towering buildings, it wasn’t cl.u.s.tered.
Landon had always loved how Singapore and a few other countries blended nature with tall, rising structures.
Even some places within the United Kingdom had a very s.p.a.cious but modern outtake to their cities.
In regions like Singapore and many others, every place felt s.p.a.cious… even with all the technology and sky-high buildings around.
So he wanted to keep developing Baymard while also keeping the city breathable and uncl.u.s.tered.
It was a perfect blend of both.
That was the dream.
But if it were ever to get cl.u.s.tered, let it look like Malaga Spain or better.
Landon wasn’t going to be picky here.
Tim quickly briefed Landon on everything that he missed so far.
Tomorrow, vending machines were going public.
