U.M.M (universal malleable material)

7 posts in this topic

Name of Aug/Tech: 
U.M.M (universal malleable material) 
 
Description: U.M.M is a smooth, black, elastic rubber-like synthetic material capable of independently flexing, bending and stretching anywhere across the surface of the material. 

How does it work: 
A woven series of tiny synthetic muscle and nerve like material. Connected to it a series of tiny scales capable of cloaking the material and also independently changing the colour of each separate scale. The cloaking functionality works the same as the HERMES MK XII Cloaking Suit "Meshed into the suit is a system of smart nanotech sensors, these sensors pick up the surroundings and once activated begin to mimic their surroundings with a smart moving display." The tiny synthetic nerves and muscles connect throughout the entire material. This means that as long one of the nerves of an almost detached piece of U.M.M is still connected to the main mass it will continue to function. For the material to function it must be commanded by a directly connected computer with the matching programming or an advanced AI. 

What is it’s intended use: 
The material is designed with the purpose of practical civilian, industrial and military use. U.M.M can be used for the manufacturing of suits, droids/drones, tools, vehicles and more.  
 
Strengths: 
It's agile and tactical functionalities are extremely useful for military applications. 
The flexible and lightweight material allows for stealthy movements. 
Can be applied to nearly any vehicle, droid, weapon and more.   

Weaknesses: 
The material is fairly weak and is capable of being torn in half by hand 
The material will not longer function and break at temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius or below -25 degrees Celsius 
Not resistant to emp 
Like the HERMES MK XII Cloaking Suit, the cloak has a slight delay in updating to sudden change, causing a slight shimmer to appear, the same happens upon initial cloaking, which appears like a slight wave of scales "flipping" that spreads across the body. 
 
Attainability: 
Open

Hey there, @Hex. Just to be clear, are these really the temperatures you want? 25 Celsius- 77 Fahrenheit- is quite hot. No complaints, of course, just confirming.

Pending.

sorry, it should say  "The material will not longer function and break at temperatures at or above 60 degrees Celsius or below -25 degrees Celsius". my mistake. I'll edit that in.

Alright. Does the material require electricity to work? Will slower movements cause the rippling effect? And does it hide anything on or around the effected object, or simply anything covered by the material?

Does the material require electricity to work? yes. Will slower movements cause the rippling effect? The rippling effect will become more and more apparent the faster the material moves while cloaked. does it hide anything on or around the affected object, or simply anything covered by the material? the material will naturally cloak anything touching a none scaled side of the material as sides without scales will also lack the sensors necessary to cloak it unless purposely added. For the material to properly cloak it must have two sensors each on polar opposite sides of the object to hide their assigned areas of the material. graph.thumb.png.b2c6c7f2f744d78f83d642c4

It's basically cybernetic octopus skin, which is pretty cool. Pass @Hex @Waffles
