The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 18
Chapter 18 Lightweight Power Arm Type VI
When Leo requested the two crystals’ formula, Dr. Zola pondered for a while and said, “I can give you the crystals’ formula, but I don’t have a solution to the power source. This problem you have to solve yourself.”
Leo quickly promised, “No problem!”
The idea for shooting ice beams and heat rays was just something he came up with due to Leo being too engrossed in the online game in his previous life.
He came up with interesting names just for fun. He never prepared to make the blueprints he imagined into a reality.
But now, Dr. Zola coincidentally had the two crystals with corresponding properties. Hence, Leo wanted to try and complete his creation.
Dr. Zola unhesitantly searched his database for the two crystals’ blueprints. He displayed it on the screen on his chest and explained to Leo, “The crystal can release low-temperature rays, I called it Frost Stone. Its crystal structure is shown on the screen on my chest, and its working principle is similar to a laser diode…”
As Dr. Zola explained, Leo focuses his concentration on Dr. Zola’s chest.
The next moment, he used Mechanical Force Analysis.
【Discover analyzable blueprint, “Frost Stone”. Analyzing…】
【Analysis complete. Gained blueprint, “Frost Stone”.】
Dr. Zola was still explaining non-stop, but Leo had mastered the principle and production method of this material.
After explaining the Frost Stone, Dr. Zola brought up another crystal that could release high-temperature rays. As expected, Dr. Zola named it Heat Stone. No wonder Dr. Zola felt perplexed at the name Leo gave to the Lightweight Power Arms.
Leo once again used Mechanical Force Analysis and acquired the blueprint for Heat Stone. He patiently listened to Dr. Zola’s explanation.
Finally, Dr. Zola concluded, “I know you won’t understand the principle of these two crystals if I briefly explain this to you. But it’s not a problem! Later, I will compile the information and blueprint and print it out for you. You can slowly experiment with it yourself. The production method is simple, but takes quite a bit of effort.”
“As expected from the teacher, always being considerate. I will learn both of the crystal production methods as soon as possible and live up to your teaching.”, Leo presented with a humble look and accepted the teaching.
“This is the crystals’ production method and you can study it later. I want to discuss something else with you now. I’ve studied the blueprints of your two mechanical arms and noticed that if you remove the flowery design, leaving only the main part of the arm. In theory, it’s possible for actual combat. Do you have the basic blueprint design?”
“Yes, here.”, Leo took out the first Lightweight Power Arm’s design from the piles of blueprints on the messy experiment table and he gave it to Dr. Zola.
Dr. Zola studied for a while and nodded, “This mechanical arm blueprint design already can be used in actual combat. But the greatest flaw is still the power source. You have improved the Miniature Highly-compressed Battery into a convenient external type battery that can be easily replaced. However, under the full power condition, this mechanical arm could only punch a few times.”
Dr. Zola truly was a brilliant scientist. He could point out this Lightweight Power Arm’s fatal flaw with just a look. After he pondered for a while, Dr. Zola said while drawing, “Leo, What if the design is like this…”
Soon after, Dr. Zola and Leo faced the blueprints together and began to have an intense discussion.
Scientists that were engrossed in research truly were terrifying. Dr. Zola did not require any food while Leo only ate some simple food for lunch. They discussed for the whole day finally reaching a consensus.
Finally, a brand new blueprint had been drawn by Dr. Zola.
The next moment, a system notification appeared in front of Leo.
【Congratulations! You successfully develop a new blueprint, please name it.】
This blueprint had been derived from the original Lightweight Power Arm. Leo and Dr. Zola had made many various minor modifications and six major modifications to the blueprint. Thus, Leo named the blueprint, “Lightweight Power Arm Type VI”.
【Naming complete. “Lightweight Power Arm Type VI”. Attribute, show/hide】
Leo opened the attribute window of the Lightweight Power Arm Type VI. The next moment, what caught his eye was a set of 3D mechanical models. Besides the two mechanical arms, the model included half-body armor which served to secure the whole mechanical model.
On the back of the model was a squarish box. It was the energy module for the mechanical model. It was made of a pack of Miniature Highly-compressed Batteries and the capacity was a hundred folds more than the original.
Leo’s original design was focused on the aesthetic of the Lightweight Power Arm. However, through Dr. Zola’s improvements, the new Lightweight Power Arm focused on practicality.
Leo compared the power and energy parameters of Type VI with the original. He found out that the parameters had improved by 20% and the energy module could sustain its full power for 20 minutes.
Overall, this time’s modification was a complete success!
Dr. Zola looked at the blueprint in his hand and was thrilled and said “I didn’t expect it! I did not expect it! The Super Soldier plan I have worked so hard for such a long time actually found a breakthrough from another direction. Leo, let us find Miss Sinthea now and report this exciting good news. Having this piece of equipment can greatly enhance H.Y.D.R.A.’s armed force!”
Leo moved his sore and exhausted body. He felt a bit complicated and said, “Teacher, I don’t think we have to be in this hurry. Your body is made of metal while mine is blood and flesh. I’m now starving and exhausted. I feel like I need to eat something and have a good rest first. How about we report this good news to the leader at tomorrow morning’s meeting?”
“Oh… Alright. Then let’s talk about this later. You hurry and have a rest, staying healthy is important.”
Dr. Zola felt awkward after listening to Leo’s words. But the next moment, he had a good idea, “Actually, Leo, how about I transfer your consciousness into a robot? This way, you won’t have any health problems and can concentrate more on researching.”
“Teacher, there’s no need for this… I just want to rest for a bit. I still preferred my body.”, after saying that, Leo bid farewell to Dr. Zola and hurriedly left.
Leo rushed to the cafeteria and ate a hearty meal. Then he returned back to his room to have a sleep and a sweet dream while at it.
The next morning, the top level’s conference room.
It was still Dr. Zola, Leo, Katr, and Sinthea, four people having a meeting.
Sinthea sat on the main seat and occasionally winked at Leo. Since the Winter Soldier had been frozen in the basement cold storage, no one was able to quench Sinthea’s desire. She was starving!
Leo felt his scalp numbed and hurriedly reported to Sinthea, “Leader, Dr. Zola, and I have good news for you.”
“Oh? What good news, tell me about it.”
Sinthea’s voice was alluring and mesmerizing. Katr who sat by the sides even hastened his breath.
Leo pretended to swallow down his saliva and gasped for his breath almost speechless.
“That’s enough! Sinthea, curb your desire for a bit, we are discussing important things.”
Dr. Zola scolded Sinthea. This made her look at Dr. Zola with a sorrowful expression as if going to cry.
Thus, Dr. Zola said with a soft tone, “Alright, tonight you can use the Winter Soldier for a bit. But now please be serious. Let me introduce to you the invention Leo and I made.”
