A locomotive system utilizing four highly flexible, extensible limbs which is capable of climbing and traversing most terrain as well as gripping and manipulating objects. The limbs are connected to a rugged harness that both secures the user and provides a strong base against which the limbs can act during exertion. Generally, each limb has a maximum extension of five meters and ends in three or four sturdy footpads/grippers, frequently incoporating geckotech. Each foot assembly can further be outfitted with a variety of optional attachments or fine manipulators. Onboard computer systems increase ease of use even for those users without neural meshes who must operate the rigs manually.
Tech Level: Cognitech 4, Nanotech 4
Cost: Low for a basic rig, Moderate for a highly modified rig
