Virtual Prototyping

The site of the recently restored Braddock Lighthouse. Aircraft hangars and other X-Men facilities, including a Cerebra unit and the Danger Room have been constructed around the foundations of the lighthouse.

Natalie adjusts her stance and the Danger Room reads out the stress and responses from her program. Over her legs, it projects a frame of various mechanical parts which responds to the changes as well. She frowns as one of her legs refuses to move properly and calls up a console, inspecting some code and modifying it. She tries moving again and smiles at it seems to work better this time.

"It's working as far as it goes. I think it's at least becoming reasonable enough to start physical prototyping after the holidays."

"Good! To that end, I've got some design sketches if you're still interested in letting me help. Don't worry, no sharks or anime mecha I swear."

"You have them with you?" She makes some more adjustments to the code and the frame responds more naturally as she starts walking around the room.

"Digitized and everything. Just a sec," he answered, digging out and plugging in a thumb drive.

Natalie would perceive the new drive and the three designs within; a boxy, raw function design, a sleeker Iron Man type, and something resembling a dragon-helmeted knight. It couldn't be entirely free of nerdiness, now could it?

"Interesting concepts," she comments, looking them over. "Why the dragon?"

As he entered, he sheepishly admitted, "I... kinda already had most of that one."

"But hey, it could be the dragon of Wales with some tweaking."

"Not a bad idea," she says, getting a strange sense of deja vu. "Might want to aim for this simpler design first though," she taps the sleeker suit.

"I imagine we'll have to do some wind-tunnel style tests as well, but that's a ways off," she says, taking the simpler design and expanding it.

She would see places in the design for propulsion and various retractable weapons. It also possessed a module based architecture for situational loadouts. People who weren't Tony Stark couldn't afford a legion of specialized suits.

"It also able to be made watertight, because why not?"

"Not a bad idea around here," she says, "I like it. It's definitely something to shoot for... or with as the case may be."

"Exactly," he smiled, "Someone will eventually come at us by sea. Also, all the rain."
