Design notes: Sparky Mk. 1, X-Utility Suit
The suit features a fabric of custom carbon nanotubes filled with electro moto-galvanic material that contracts with a force directly proportional to the electrical charge applied. Simply speaking they are electrically controlled artificial muscle fibers that will give the user a temporary boost to their physical strength when current is applied. Bundles of these carbon nanotubes were wrapped around a conductive saline gel which will allow the user to project electrical energy through terminals laid evenly about the suit in 20 cm intervals.
Affixed to the boots is a pocket of liquid metal (see Ferrodermis Mk. 1) that is programmed to semi-solidify on the surface and remain liquid in the center when the correct amount of current is applied. When expanded underneath the boot, they will create a conductive cushion that can be used as a rotating “rail”. This creates a sort of skate that can simulate Simon’s ability to ride the rails increasing speed and travel range.
The carbon nanotubes have a fantastic durability that can provide some protection from incoming projectiles, other blunt force trauma and directed energy. When used in conjunction with the moto-galvanic material, plates can be formed to increase protection with applied current. These plates restrict movement, but can be useful as a reactive defense.
The helmet provides full face coverage with fiber optic nodes feeding into a powerful cognition array that provides constant tactical information. A primitive version of my Valentine AI controls many of the arrays functions and with use of electrodes attached to the temples the user can interface directly with the suits electronic systems. A virtual HUD can also be accessed and displayed in “mind’s eye”. Vision in the infrared and ultraviolet spectrum is also integral as is an encrypted communications system. The armored carbon fiber helmet is also connected to the pack that can provide a short term air supply.
Utility items include a holster for an electrified net apparatus, fingerprint/microscope scanner, variable format computer interface, video/audio recorder, WiFi, micro-surveillance drone and a molecularly enhanced Lithium Ion battery that can provide up to 5000 kWh to boost electrical power.
(Side note: The suit looks particularly lethal and sleek. The natural carbon grey is also quite striking.)
