OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

  • Intent: To provide a means to enhance Force-users' ability to perform data transfers
  • Image Source: LifeWire
  • Canon Link: N/A
  • Restricted Missions: N/A
  • Primary Source: AJ^6 cyborg construct, HoldoModem
PRODUCTION INFORMATION
  • Manufacturer: HoldoWare (base modem) Utai Magic Circle (alchemy)
  • Model: Utai Mental Modem
  • Affiliation: Open-market
  • Modularity: Yes: can change the external wiring

  • Production: Minor
  • Material: Alchemized reinforced plasteel, electronics
SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Lightsaber resistant
  • Can resist EMPs
  • Can grant the user Force-powered enhanced mental throguhput in the context of Memory Rub and Drain Knowledge within 50m of the modem
  • Allows Force-users to make uploads and downloads from the HoloNet to their brains throughput within 50m of the modem
Strengths:
  • Lightsaber-resistant
  • Can resist ion/EMPs
  • High-speed modem: Enhances Force-powered mental data transfer throughput within 50m of the modem when using Memory Rub or Drain Knowledge
  • Sentient-HoloNet interface: Allows Force-users to upload and download data to the HoloNet within 50m of the modem
  • Wifi hotspot: Provides users, Force-using or not, HoloNet access to computer equipment within 50m of the modem
Weaknesses:
  • Force-nullifiers: The presence of Force-nullifiers can render the Utai Mental Modem nothing more than an ordinary wifi hotspot.
  • Presence: Force-imbuement presence means that unless you somehow hide it, Force-users can detect the modem.
  • Heightened headache risks: If the users within range of the modem cannot handle the heightened throughputs when using Memory Rub or Drain Knowledge, or high-speed mental interfaces with the HoloNet, their brains will likely get overwhelmed and headaches will likely ensue, sometimes debilitating ones
  • Force-guzzling: With higher throughputs comes higher expenditures of Force-energy: it will effectively double the users' Force-energy consumption when actively transferring data using the Force, regardless of whether it's for transferring data between sentients or for transferring data between the user and the HoloNet
  • Jamming: If the modem is jammed, its HoloNet capabilities are jammed as well, leaving only the alchemical abilities unrelated to the HoloNet
  • NFUs: While NFUs can be more effectively be used Memory Rub or Drain knowledge on when within range of the modem, they cannot effectively upload or download data from the HoloNet into their brains since the alchemical sentient-HoloNet interface port is compatible only with Force-users
DESCRIPTION: With the idea dawning on Janick that she was, in fact, using Force-powered mental data transfers on a regular basis, she also decided that perhaps she could use the idea of an alchemized modem not only for enhancing the throughputs Janick and her students can achieve when using Memory Rub or Drain Knowledge, akin to a high-speed Force-LAN, but also allowing a direct sentient-HoloNet interface for Force-users. However, since the alchemical nature of the interface features a Force-port that is only compatible with Force-users, only FUs can effectively use it to upload or download data from the HoloNet using the modem. Of course, high throughputs when using either Force-powered mental data transfer method afforded by the modem are not without risks to the users' brains: if their cerebral wiring is inadequate, the users may get painful headaches, and sometimes even debilitating headaches, from either using Memory Rub/Drain Knowledge, being used those powers on, or using the sentient-HoloNet Force-interface.

Even when there are no Force-users in the vicinity of the modem, the alchemized reinforced plasteel allows it to resist ion/EMPs as well as lightsabers, and also the ability to connect to it as a HoloNet wifi hotspot within 50m as well. Sadly, the alchemical treatments do not protect it against frequency jamming, meaning that if a jammer capable of affecting a modem was active, the modem loses all HoloNet capability while jammed.
