Biochips are computer chips specially designed to be implanted in the human body. Most are meant to connect to the nervous system in some way, and they typically enhance some mental function (memory, information processing, etc.).
- Memory Chips: Memory chips are the most common type of biochips. They are usually implanted in the user's brain, and they allow the user to store perfect memories of what they see and hear, as well as what they think and read.
- Muscle Memory Chips: Unlike normal memory chips, muscle memory chips have a certain level of control over the user's nervous system. They are sometimes implanted in the user's brain, but are also sometimes implanted near other major nerve clusters depending on their specific function. They can be used to store specific actions that can be executed on mental command. These actions are not adaptable and do not adjust for different surroundings or circumstances, so minor actions like finger movement to play piano will be more widely useful than full body actions like parkour.
- Sensory Processors: Sensory processing chips take data collected by the user's sensors and analyze it, presenting it HUD style in the user's vision. This is the rarest type of biochip and is used primarily by FTS snipers and some special forces.
- Homeostatic Chips: Homeostatic chips allow users to precisely control such things as their body temperature, metabolism, and hormone release, granting them the ability to temporarily give themselves boosts in physical ability.
- Interface Chips: An interface chip is connected to a computer port in the user's skin and allows their brain to directly interface with computer systems. Some systems, however, are designed to recognize them and launch an attack on the user's brain, so they are of limited use.
