Blade Runner + Shinichiro Watanabe + Flying Lotus

That's like combining 3 of my favourite things together, I can't even fathom.

I don't get it. Wouldn't an EMP also destroy the replicants?  :hmm:

Replicants are synthetic humans, not robots. So they wouldn't be affected.

If they were robotic, you'd easily be able to scan them to detect them, you wouldn't need the Voight-Kampff test.

But wouldn't they run on some form of electricity? I mean they have to get energy from somewhere. They were refereed to as androids in the book which is the term for robots that look like humans. Also what about the glowing retinas?

They get their energy like humans do, from food.

While androids typically are robots that look like humans, I don't think this is the case here, at least lore-wise from the movies, rather than the book.

You can have fluorescent material without electricity, I would think of it like a glow in the dark tattoo, almost.
