Tables would be really for some of this stuff in the next book (hint
The math is not to difficult but tables would help out a great deal in
the design stages.
I suppose I'm just being lazy on this one. I disigned van and two
customized drones it took
a little over two hours. I love the detail but anyway you can streamline

MBW works on the principle of putting the body into a continual state of
seizure, and then through the use of controlled electric impulses to command
the body to move in an extremely controlled and fluid manner ... sounds like
Structual Agility, just on a person ... an example, someone plays around with
another person's MBW .... bypassing the motor control programming, the person
goes into a permanent seizure state and no longer has any control over their
own body ...
