Accepting requests for services in the field of software development and datapad modification.

Custom Application Developement:

Custom development of consumer and enterprise applications. Comfortable in all CoRe specific developing environments as well as most smartphone platforms and datapad applications. Have a native working product you wish to extend compatibility with to CoRe systems? We can do that together too. Please contact if you wish specific details or would like to schedule a contracting session.

Personal Datapad Modding:

Datapads have slowly but surely become the primary tool of convenience for any CoRe or Marshalship affiliate. Yet surprisingly, the bulk of the user base is not even aware of their full potential. In an effort to enlighten you to the possible uses, I’m extending the ability to modify datapads on a per-user basis to suit the best of your needs. I’m open to thoughts on any and all ideas, but here are a few of the more common adjustments.

Battery Expansion:

An improvement that boosts performance at the sacrifice of cost. This is actually a certified modification that replaces the standard issue battery with a thinner battery that allows for better situating of further hardware expansion within the usual casing (rather than being forced to adjust the unit size itself). On top of this, it has a higher maximum capacity for carrying its charge. Why wasn’t this battery the standard issue then? As mentioned, its more expensive. Roughly twice the cost of the usual battery, this was deemed unnecessary for the main consumer base that sought to make the most of the standard design. This is a good place to start clearing space and boosting resources for further modifications.

Holograph Bump-detection Projector:

Another common improvement sought out by a large portion of the user base already, is the holograph projector. The common use for this is the expansion of a digital keyboard via projection, location dependent upon the unit’s placing, as shown below. This can also be fitted with a means that does not require a  physical surface of projection (though many find it ‘more natural’ to have it do so).

What most don’t realize, however, is the following.

  • Modification to the standard projector allows it to function as an input as well as an output. This allows the user to scan a surface in order to recognize inconsistencies, or as a hand-held means of tracing a physical document to a PDF format, or whatever one can think up.
  • Multiple cameras can be installed and recognized in order to create an entire digital workspace of ‘monitors’ projected about the datapad. It is not limited to the single installment variety.

Sensor Installment:

Most datapads can be set to receive sensor information from a forwarding point, such as a nearby space vessel or larger installment. However, a datapad specifically is well fitted to handle a less-than-common installment of small but dependable sensor arrays designed to fit on plastic chip sets for a more portable setup. These chips can even be tweaked such that can overlay one another, as each responds to its own stimuli. Examples of such chips are the following (though some may require a bit of additional wiring for open exposure).

  • Detect change in magnetic or gravitational field.
  • Anomalous dispersion of energy within current atmosphere.
  • Chemical makeup of current atmosphere.
  • Temperature of surrounding space.
  • Etc.

‘Etc’ implying these are not the only components possible. A datapad could be fitted with a larger array capable of projection-based scanning over a unit as well, to allow recognition of a certain type of mechanoid or metallic make-up of such a unit, etc. If you have further inquiry, I’ll continue to stress, please ask.

Personally fitted installment:

Many armors fitted for combat require custom designed interfaces and further hardware research. Often times retrieval of a datapad in the midst of combat under such conditions is simply too much effort to ask, even though a lot of the tools one might require are already on it. Or heck, maybe you’re just not one wishing to constantly pocket and un-pocket your pad because you use it so much. If that’s the case, I recommend setting up an appointment to have your datapad fitted to something more convenient.

Nothing particularly flashy or fancy here, but the process of fitting a datapad to an armband or even directly into a combat suit’s arm is still something most are unfamiliar with in terms of wiring alteration if nothing else. If you find you use your datapad often under such situations, feel free to set up an appointment and be prepared to provide a basic schematic setup of the suit or design in question you’d like to adapt your datapad to. On top of that, with sensor installments, it is possible to have datapad feed sent directly to a suit’s H.U.D. for even further convenience.


With all that said, if you have any questions about whether or not your project is feasible, or already have a specific contract in mind you’d like to request, please use the following contact info.

  • Crono Arinborn, CTI Field Research Department
  • Forward messages to Gatekeeper CTI Headquarters, office 5-M
  • Alternative contact:

Advising and discussion sessions incur no charge, only physical services. One can expect to pay for any hardware purchases necessary and a competitive services charge based only on hours spent, no arbitrary fees for strange or complicated requests.

((When accessed from a BoG Crew Account, this page is scripted to note that there is no charge of any such services for crewmates and close relations)).
