The Professionals - Light switches

At some stage a great deity said “Let there be light,” and then there was Jonathan Cox - head of retail for Honeywell, owners of MK Electric and purveyors of switches and sockets to the stars since 1919. MK has the lion’s share of the UK market. In short, Jon Cox is a mightily powerful man and when he sees his chosen area of pedantry abused in PC games he becomes righteously angry. Light switches have been continuously misrepresented since the birth of 3D, and it’s time to set the record straight.

Cox: Hmm. I guess that a lot of this is alien technology so until I get stroggified it’s going to be difficult to understand. It does have touch sensitivity rather than a moving mechanism in it though, which is becoming more popular on Earth and could well be the way forward. I’d expect more security built in to this one though - perhaps a retinal scanner or a pheromone sensor, to make it more secure in what is, after all, an alien military installation dedicated to the eradication of human life. Still, it is green and pretty.
