In 1996, Microsoft manufactured android versions of Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula and the Grey Lady for the Festival of Ghana. The company later underwent investigation for building dangerous robots. (PROSE: Interference - Book One, TV: The Chase)
Behind the scenes Edit
- The original 1965 serial The Chase does not identify Microsoft as the maker of the robots — indeed the company wasn't even established for another decade. This was later subject to a retcon in the aforementioned novel.
- In the real world, Microsoft manufactured the Xbox, and released Windows Vista and Windows 7. These links, however, have yet to be made within the DWU.
- PowerPoint is a computer application seen in PROSE: Iris Wildthyme and the Unholy Ghost, however it's not stated if it was made by Microsoft.
