Oh no cyborg kill robot!

Poor widget..
Sheela 16th Sep 2014, 3:05 PM edit delete reply

Ah, but at least widget can be reassembled !
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 3:23 PM edit delete reply

thats right :D

I believe it is best summed up as 2 major owies. It looks like he hit and destroyed her hip?
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 6:29 AM edit delete reply

Pretty much crushed it .. yes... not fun.
Stormwind13 16th Sep 2014, 6:59 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, serious damage Haegan. Her chance of escaping went from poor to non-existent. She isn't going anywhere now, he can squash her at his leisure. :-\
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 2:35 PM edit delete reply

sadly.. yes.
KageMCS 16th Sep 2014, 3:31 PM edit delete reply
Wait, crushed PELVIS!?! That sounds like it comes with a side order of major internal bleeding and/or shock. I hope she makes it, although that might explain the hauntings...

The list of injuries will come up later. At the moment, in the part of her brain that is not full of "AAAIIIGH" (it is a very tiny part), Pensri is wondering if she's just shit out half her spine. His boot folded her up like a damp towel.

Not necessarily, the core processors don't have to be in the head. It could just be the primary VOX and sensor array in the head being shorted out. Secondaries in the torso could keep it in the fight a while longer if its AI is located in the better protected body.

wait for it..

HEY! Your going to have to pay for that if you break it.
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 6:30 AM edit delete reply

Oh yeah thats coming out of his paycheck ..
Stormwind13 16th Sep 2014, 6:57 AM edit delete reply

He'll be paying this off for years, plymayer!

Call the cleaners !
DizzasterJuice 16th Sep 2014, 10:59 AM edit delete reply

Looks like we're going to need another robot. Melt this one down for scrap metal.
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 2:31 PM edit delete reply

Yep :D

That robot looks to be built as solid as a hummer. The neck and limbs in particular are thick and industrial-grade. And it'd have to be made of steel or something equivalent, like carbon fiber or nanomaterials.

I'm saying that this threatens to break my suspension of disbelief. He may be a military-spec combat cyborg, but I don't see how he could so easily and quickly get to something vital - especially when his rattled mind thinks he's fighting fleshy alien monsters.

Granted, it'd be believable with an energy weapon, explosives, gun, or vibrational (supersonic) blade. But did he just finish it off with three hits from a single, bare (cyber-enhanced) hand?! Without even realizing it's vital points?

Have you ever tried to break something made of steel with your bare hands? How about trying a karate-chop on a cinder block or a steel plate? I just don't buy it.
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 2:34 PM edit delete reply

well lets put it this way - Yes Widget is tough but in order for mobility the joints are the weakest part and most are magnetic in nature - The col Cyber arm and his body modifications allow him to rip open armor plate put batter his way though a re-enforced door with ease.. Widget is not military grade - although some of his parts are .. and whats happening here is chips are being shaken and battered out of place - thus the shorts and malfunctions.. hes destroying its ability to see and hear.
KageMCS 16th Sep 2014, 3:16 PM edit delete reply
Yes, percussive maintenance works best on purely mechanical devices. Delicate stuff like computer parts tend to break if shaken around too much.
Rms2000 17th Sep 2014, 5:38 PM edit delete reply
I have to disagree with your analysis of how the damage is being sustained. I've played around in my fair share o electronic devices, and with present 21st century tech, the components on PCBs generally weigh a few grams at most, or perhaps half a kilo on a large device like a PC's motherboard. The board itself usually weighs more, and then for high performance hardware, heatsinks and fans usually take up between 25% and 40% of the device's mass. All together, the components weigh perhaps 2 kg for a standard PC motherboard with heatsinks and fans. If it's even remotely well-secured, there's no way that inertial effects are going to cause any kind of serious problems. At least, not with any of the solid-state components. That said, moving parts are almost always more delicate. Things like spinning hard disk platters and large fans will be prone to inertial damage. I would hesitate to hypothesize that any tech in the datachasers/lunastar world still runs on spinning hard drives, though since as we speak, new solid-state technologies are looking to replace them (if you're curious, check out what Wikipedia has to say about "Resistive Random Access Memory" or "RRAM"). If Widget did run on a hard disk, a sharp impact would probably cause one or more of the read/write heads to crash into the storage platter and corrupt the data there, which would very quickly cause a malfunction. If, as I suspect, it was a fan or cooling component that was affected, it would probably cause a failure, but not an immediate one. There would be a pause either of seconds or perhaps a minute before the component that was being cooled overheated, depending on the workload that the component was under. If the fan was PWM controlled with a feedback loop, the software on Widget's hardware drivers might throw an error immediately, which would likely result in a quick digital distress call, followed by a prompt shutdown. Of course, all that about the fans implies that Widget relies on active air cooling, which would not be a smart design choice on a robot that will work in space. If Widget uses liquid cooling, then all manner of things could go wrong. Since this post is already quite verbose, I think I'll leave those details to your imagination for now.
If I have given offense by providing my technical analysis, I apologize. I love DC and Luna Star. Thank you for taking the time to consider my technical opinions on these mostly irrelevant matters.
Centcomm 17th Sep 2014, 7:33 PM edit delete reply

heres the thing - Widget is a maintence bot hes not designed for hard core combat . he is liquid cooled and medium armor plate .. Halloran is hitting his head and neck with enough force to punch in a small vault door the joints simply can no handle that kind of stress.. and he is shorting out as senses are knocked offline. as for Halloran not knowing how to fight him thats a odd question, Lets just say his skills are instinctive and widget made a enemy out of him by firing .,. althogh Widget had no choice in that eather

At Rms2000 im actually fine with long posts and such .. lets me knw you guys are actually paying attention :D
Sheela 17th Sep 2014, 7:39 PM edit delete reply

True, solid state electronics are actually quite shock resistant, this is another one of those hollywood myths that floats around, kinda like how computers appearently explode if you download too fast and cars blow up when you shoot them in the door.
jas 16th Sep 2014, 1:26 PM edit delete reply

That kick sounded like it broke ribs! And yeah, widget's toast... :/
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 2:34 PM edit delete reply

See above for results of that kick..:(
Timotheus 16th Sep 2014, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

So the col. is essentially wolverine, with a REPLACED AND ENHANCED skeleton and musculature. Not much organics left and his mass density is equivalent to the robots so it can take the impact stress.
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 4:30 PM edit delete reply

Correct.. over 60 percent of his musculature has been ether replaced or blended with Myomer fibers. His bones are lined and replaced where possible long bone marrow has been kept for blood production. and he still needs to eat and sleep - although his cyberware could allow him to stay awake for days if needed ..
Fairportfan 16th Sep 2014, 8:43 PM edit delete reply

Dis you know that living bone is stronger than steel in the same configuration?
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 10:28 PM edit delete reply

This is true. before its laminated this is real info (27.63 pounds to 36.96 pounds) is the breaking force of bone. however bone can flex and absorb and dissipate a lot of that force. so there you go.. Metal can raise that number to hundreds of pounds..
Matt Knab 16th Sep 2014, 4:58 PM edit delete reply

Well, this isn't going well.
Centcomm 16th Sep 2014, 5:12 PM edit delete reply

would you believe it gets worse?
Stormwind13 16th Sep 2014, 7:00 PM edit delete reply

Yes, EVIL one... we would believe you have WORSE in store for the poor tech. Because you are SO Evil (and your feral Rose too!).
mjkj 17th Sep 2014, 4:31 AM edit delete reply

Poor Pensri and poor Widget...
Howard 17th Sep 2014, 4:00 PM edit delete reply
Poor Halloran!! He ether dies today or he lives the rest of his life knowing he did that to an innocent girl. Not to mention he is probably gonna do much worth before he goes down. Nothing worse then a good man being use to do bad things
Centcomm 17th Sep 2014, 7:34 PM edit delete reply

yes .. its going to get far worse before it gets better .. >_<
