In the SHIELD lab; Gemma uses some kind of [[Simulated reality|simulated]] or [[Augmented Reality|augmented reality]] device in the form of a headset. There are also some kind of AR glasses used by Agent May and a team of Shield soldiers.
      
We are also introduced to Aida, a cybernetic robot with human appearance created by Dr. Radcliffe (A [[transhumanist]] as mentioned in season 3). The robot isn't quite working yet, appearing before Fitz nude and stuck in some kind of loop. Dr. Radcliffe mentions [[Avengers: Age of Ultron|Ultron]] and [[AI]] being banned, saying Aida is mimicry technology and not Artificial Intelligence. Dr. Radcliffe also mentions hopes of Aida passing the [[Turing test]].

Episode 8 (the mid-season finale) leaves us with a cliffhanger that AIDA, a life model decoy (LMD) or Android, has become self-aware after reading a book that is known as the "Darkhold". This story arc is picked up again in episode 9 where we learn that AIDA has created an android version of agent May, killed a SHIELD agent, and begun a quest to regain the Darkhold book.
