Chapter 260: Photograph technology
The three of them walked into an empty laboratory where there was a strange instrument hung up in the middle. Yun Tianhe was fiddling with the instrument as Meng Yingying directed several researchers, busying herself.
Chu Tian asked as soon as he came in, “Yingying, is it done?”
Meng Yinyging gave a strong un sound and made a sign with her hand showing that there was no problems!
“Alright, then let’s begin.” Chu Tian waved his hand at Yun Tianhe operating the instrument, “Make the preparations, we’re taking a picture!”
Was this the projector Chu Tian wanted to make?
The projector was different from the phonograph, but its function was close to the same. In order to distinguish it from the phonograph, after careful consultation, everyone decided to call it the camera, with the ability to capture light and pictures.
Meng Qingwu was curiously looking over the camera.
Because there were only a few cameras made, the design was currently very rough, but it was also very complex. On a tripod, there was a black rectangular box with a cylinder pointing outwards, pointing straight forward.
Chu Tian specially changed into new clothes and combed his hair into a stylish matter. He held the little fox as he came over, “Yingying, young miss, Nangong, come over here.”
Meng Yingying, Meng Qingwu, and Nangong Yun were all called over.
Meng Qingwu was stunned because the normally crazy Nangong Yun was very serious at this moment, looking very fiery but charming, “You all are…..”
“First let’s not talk. We’re taking a group picture!”
“I still haven’t prepared myself yet.”
“I say, young miss, you still need to prepare yourself?”
Chu Tian pulled the three girls over. Meng Qingwu’s face was bewildered while Meng Yingying and Nangong Yun had looks of excitement. No one had this experience before, so they were filled with anticipation.
“Are you all ready?” Yun Tianhe placed a small crystal chip in the hole and aimed the equipment at the people in front of him, “I’m taking the picture!”
Meng Yingying and Nangong Yun immediately put on good expressions.
Chu Tian yelled out.
“What are you doing?”
“You wasted this old woman’s expression!”
Chu Tian gave a proposition, “Think about it. This is the first picture in the world, it may be spread for thousands or even tens of thousands of years, becoming one of the famous moments in histories, having an era creating significance.”
“Stop beating around the bush.” Meng Yingying glared at him, “Just say it!”
“Eh. My meaning is that, for a picture with such historical value, if we all stood like blocks of wood, wouldn’t it be not creative?” Chu Tian said with a bit of seriousness, “I don’t wish that in ten thousand years, when people see us in their textbooks, they will think that we’re old fashioned people!”
The three girls revealed smiles.
This was a bit reasonable.
Meng Yingying then asked, “Then what positions should we take?”
“How about this.” Chu Tian gave a suggestion, “In order to show that Miracle Commerce is a close family, I’ll suffer a loss and let you all kiss my handsome face.”
The three women all said the same thing at once.
I knew it wouldn’t be a good idea.
“Forget it, forget it, then just take a random posture and take the picture!”
Chu Tian and Meng Qingwu just stood there in the end. Meng Yingying stood to left of Chu Tian and Nangong Yun stood to his right, both of them revealing signs of victory with their hands.
“Get ready. Three, two, one!”
The moment Yun Tianhe pressed the button, Chu Tian suddenly reached out his hands. One went around Meng Yingying’s neck and the other went around Meng Qingwu’s waist.
The source energy arrays released a light that enveloped the four of them.
Meng Yingying flew into a rage, like an angry rabbit, “Bastard, you used a sneak attack!”
Meng Qingwu directly kicked out with her long leg.
“Sorry, sorry, I couldn’t control myself.” Chu Tian quickly dodged out of the way, moving to the side with an evil smile, “Old Yun, how is the picture?”
Yun Tianhe took out the small crystal chip and placed it in Chu Tian’s hand.
The little fox was interested and stole it first, taking a look at it.
The four of them were reflected on the crystal, just like the real people. It was like looking into a mirror. The little fox looked at itself on the crystal and excitedly pointed at it with its claw before visibly jumping with joy!
“Let me see!”
Yingying and Nangong went over. Meng Yingying’s nose went crooked with anger because in the picture, her shoulder was was being hugged by Chu Tian. Her face was completely red and it looked very cute.
Meng Qingwu angrily glared at it. She was being held by Chu Tian by the waist. She had been smiling, but it was also filled with shock and nervousness.
“Not bad, not bad!” Chu Tian said to Yun Tianhe, “This is the result that I wanted. It want this picture to be passed through the ages, letting everyone be envious of me surrounded by beauties, ha, ha, ha, ha!”
Meng Qingwu angrily rolled her eyes.
“It really looks exactly the same!” Meng Yingying took the little crystal card and did not keep pursuing Chu Tian. She frowned and said, “Only it’s too small. It would be better if it was a little bigger.”
“You don’t understand this.” Chu Tian said, “This little crystal stone disc is called a negative. It is placed in the camera and after the source energy array is activated, the energy in the crystal is release and the picture in front of it is captured. After we’ve made this small negative, then we can use it to develop pictures.’
Chu Tian gave the negative to Yun Tianhe.
Yun Tianhe immediately walked out.
In around ten minutes, Yun Tianhe ran back in with a bunch of things in his arms, “I’ve made ten different copies of different sizes, how about you take a look at them?”
The four heads immediately gathered together.
The largest was a foot long, clearly reflecting the images of the four of them.
“Wa!” Meng Yingying shouted out in pleasant surprise, “It’s so clear, it’s like looking into a mirror. How can it be so clear even after it was enlarged like this?”
Nangong Yun also began to praise it, “This really is incredible!”
“The picture clarity is related to the density of Hidden Image Stones. The more dense the Hidden Image Stones are, the more light is stored and the clearer the picture. Even if this picture was made to three meters wide, it would still be as clear.”
Meng Qingwu stroked the warm jade picture and her brows slightly knit, “It’s made from jade. This will cost quite a bit and will hurt the promotion.”
“Don’t be worried, vice chairman.” Yun Tianhe stroked his beard and said, “The material doesn’t really matter. What is really forming the picture is actually a layer of Hidden Image Stone. This layer can be placed on jade or crystals, but it can also be placed on glass, animal pelt, and even on paper, it doesn’t matter.”
Meng Qingwu revealed a surprised expression, “This also means that any material can be a carrier?”
“Most materials would work!”
Meng Qingwu’s expression changed. Like this, not long would pass before Central State City’s newspapers, books, and even streets would be filled with high definition and practical pictures!
Chu Tian raised the picture up high and felt even more satisfied. What he was holding in his hand wasn’t just a photo, it was history!
Many heroic characters would fade in time.
Chu Tian had froze history, which had a great significance!
This was an era changing invention!
If people had Source Energy Cameras, they would be able to take pictures wherever they went. This world was very beautiful and even if people did not leave their homes, they could use photos to see the tip of the iceberg.
“This thing is really fun!” Meng Yingying loudly shouted, “I want to take a picture! I want to take a picture!”
Nangong Yun then said, “You three look so close, I seem like an outsider. How could this be? Boss, I want to take one with you!”
Nangong Yun casually placed her arms around Chu Tian’s shoulders and they took a picture.
“Yingying, let’s take one together.”
The two sisters stood together to take a picture.
“Zhi, zhi, zhi!”
The little fox danced with joy, wanting to take one of itself. Chu Tian agreed and let it take a picture.
Meng Yingying was very excited, “It’s no fun with just us, it would be more interesting if everyone was here!”
“You’re right!” Nangong Yun revealed a look of approval, “I’ll go call Yun Yao, Caidie, Aunt Chen, and everyone else!”
Everyone gathered together and all kinds of pictures were taken.
Just this small camera filled them all with joy.
“This camera’s internal test does not have any problems.” Chu Tian announced, “We’ll carry out testing tomorrow in the city, letting everyone experience this magic! In order to advertise, we’ll manufacture a few advertisements and let the people of the city see them!”
“Advertisements?” Meng Yingying asked in a curious voice, “What are advertisements!”
Chu Tian picked up the camera, “Come over here, I’ll take a picture of you!”
Chu Tian had Meng Yingying hold a can of food and then took several pictures.
Chu Tian said to Meng Yingying, “We’ll print these pictures on three meter tall boards and add a few words of advertisement on it, then paste it in the various cities. I can guarantee that in just a few days, the canned food revenues will increase by several times!”
“Whether it is the newspaper of the radio, it can’t compare to these advertisements. If we post these pictures on the most prominent streets in each city, then people will find it hard to ignore them. It will arouse their interests and at that time, Yingying, you’ll become a star!”
This really was a new method of advertising!
Because there has never been an advertisement that has been this effective on the continent before!
There was no method of advertising that was more direct than this. If Miracle Commerce used these advertisements and used the radio station every time they released a new product, the effects could be easily imagined.
Everyone played around for most of the night.
Because the photo studio was about to open in the city, Chu Tian had to go check things over before dawn, otherwise problems might occur. So Chu Tian left the headquarters and went to Miracle Commerce’s photo studio.
When Chu Tian entered a secluded street.
“Wait a minute!” Chen Bingyu said in a low voice, “There are people following us!”
Chu Tian knit his brows. They were being followed? By who?
