TARDIS Technical Index

Absolute Tesseractulator

This device is responsible for keeping track of a TARDIS's dimensional location. It uses the Interstitial Antenna to collect data from the Vortex. A TARDIS knows where it's going by using digitally-modelled time-cone isometry parallel-bussed into the image translator, with local motion being mapped over every refresh-cycle. This information is displayed on the Gyro-Series Dials. It will detect time travel induced by exterior forces (even if the TARDIS's drive is not activated). It is possible that a TARDIS occasionally materializes in space to "get its bearings."
