Digistruct Technology – Process, History, Application
Digistructing is the process of constructing a physical object using a digital blueprint and broken down molecules of equal or similar mass. Until recently, much about digistruct technology was either unknown or proprietary, but is now available here thanks to Dahl’s Dr. Clio Zarpedon’s investigative research.
Origins of Digistruct Technology
Digistructing is based on remnants of a great civilization that disappeared before mankind existed: the Eridians. Eridian ruins, initially discovered by Atlas on Promethea, contained enough intact (or almost intact) weaponry and technology to study, then replicate or adapt.
Eridian technology and the science behind it is still mostly unknown, but through multi-corporation cooperation we have been able to create a whole new way to live, and significantly improved average quality of life. Not just through digistruct technology, but also through a host of other innovations.
Examples of Digistruct Tech Applications
By now, digistruct technology is so widely available that the exact number of applications is difficult to estimate. However, here are some designs that utilize digistruction:
- Fast Travel System
- New-U Terminals
- Tediore Disposable Weaponry
- Storage Deck Upgrades (manufactured by Dahl)
- Constructors, Surveyors, and Loaders (Hyperion)
- Vehicle Acquisition (Catch-A-Ride System)
- Ammunition and Health Chests
- Weapons pulled from the holster
- Vending machine items
- Digistruct Peak
- Scorpio Turrets (Atlas, issued to certain Crimson Lance operatives)
- Concealed bladed weapons, favored by assassins
