Part of last nights LiveStream, stretching my mecha muscle.
Bio Synthetic Battle Mechs.
Electro elastic ribbon bundles provide primary locomotion in place of the common hydraulic motor. They provide a wide range of motion from a single joint, allowing very fluid and human-like motion. The bundles are resilient to damage, only loosing the power of severed fibers, where a motor might be paralyzed by such a hit.
While stick and throttle controls with aid of nav AIs can allow a standard pilot to control a biomech, full synchronized motion can only be achieved through a neural link. Siphoning off nerve impulses to the pilots body, the mech becomes an extension of the pilot.
Capable of terrifyingly effective close combat, biomechs are the king of urban warfare.
