Designed initially for mere prosthesis, the SK CyberSpine's broad utility and versatility have caught the eye of security professionals, technicians, and performers across the solar system.
Functioning as a replacement for most of the vertebrae, the CyberSpine supports and cushions the user's spinal cord. State of the art alloys and synthetic tissue absorb impact and strain that could shatter bone, while bio-connectors along the artificial spinal column monitor and, if needed, reroute neural activity. The augmentation allows users to better survive falls and lift heavy loads.
What it could do:
* Greatly increase the amount someone can lift (while not increasing their actual carrying capacity), allowing even weak people to lift/carry bodies etc.
* Reduce fall damage by one stage, so that a person falling one story could land unscathed, two with injuries as though they'd only fallen one, etc. There could even be some cool messaging on short falls.
* Allow people to move barricades/manholes etc without penalty. This would only affect the block/remove commands, not charging/kicking said obstacles
* Allow people to contort themselves to fit into tiny spaces normally reserved for small characters, possibly with some amusing messaging about impossibly bending their body
* Negate or reduce failure chance when climbing grappling hooks
* Could possibly add a small amount of back armor
Back naked: (appended after whatever is normally there like a tattoo) A ridge of articulated steel runs the length of %p spine, the metal married to the flesh.
This one does a lot of little things that would be nice QoL improvements for certain characters, plus it could be the basis for adding drug autoinjectors or whatever else down the line. And you could use it to RP curing your paralysis or whatever!
SK Manual Vehicle Rigging Chip
Requires: Cybereye, neural processor, visual overlay optical mode, remote operation system (a new car part)
The SK Vehicle Rigging Chip is an implant that allows the user to remotely interface with a linked car or aero's remote operating system and assume control of it wherever they happen to be. A must-have for security and law enforcement, the vehicle rigging module has recently become popular with busy commuters in the civilian world.
To use: Your cybersurgeon will first link the chip to the remote operation system installed in your vehicle. Then, after your chip is installed, simply activate it using your neural processor and your vehicle's cameras will feed into your SK cybereye's visual overlay optical module, just as if you were in the driver's seat. From there, your vehicle's systems are at your fingertips.
As an added security feature, this chip deletes all user data in the event of the user's death, preventing a chip lost this way from being used to operate the vehicle until it is linked again.
* Remote operation system is a set of computers/cameras you can link to this chip and install on any car or aero, but maybe not a bike.
* Once it's all set up and activated you can /startup, /shutoff, /lock, /unlock, /drive, /fly, and maybe a command to check your flight computer if there is one. Basically the full suite of car commands in cyberware form
* Operating a vehicle like this uses rigging, not driving/flying. This adds some more use for the rigging skill and yes this also means a rigger could set this all up and use the cyberware to drive/fly themselves around without actually knowing how to drive or fly. Hell, hang out in the back of your murder van smoking weed while you do donuts in front of the Hall with your mind
* Look like a complete badass when your own car pulls up to pick you and your date up and there is nobody inside
* Adds more fun for vehicles and potential for shenanigans if say someone hacks all the cars for a plot and they start running people over or something
* Rescue yourself from the badlands or the mix or whatever if you get lost or kidnapped
* Drive one car while you /drive another and get twice as stuck in traffic
* Poor man's spybot! Of course you can't peer at stuff so functionality is reduced and also if some Mixer defaces your fancy dashcam with some spraypaint you're probably going to need a tow
SK Automatic Vehicle Rigging Chip
Requires: neural processor, gps implant, remote operation system
This functions similarly to the manual vehicle rigging chip, but instead of remotely driving your car, you just /summon it and it starts up and automatically paths to you if it can. You don't need any real skill for it and I dunno, it just isn't as insanely flash.
So that's it! I love cyberware and I think this all is not tooooo far of a stretch code or themewise.
