Phantom Tech is something that was created during the age of technological advancement during the past two hundred years or so for the Soul Society. What Phantom Tech is, in a nutshell, is both a brain and Zanpukto modification that allows for the use of more cybernetic type powers. For example, if a Shinigami or Arrancar were to have this surgery, they would be granted powers ranging from advanced calculation skills, a connection to one of their home networks (Examples: The Yuudeshi Network, The Gotei 13 Archives, The Cyberworld and etc) and become fully independent of their body. What does the last one mean? Well, after the surgery, some Phantom Tech users can easily swap bodies simply by placing the brain in a compatible vessel and in some cases, such as Shadin Yuudeshi's case, can control dozens, if not, hundreds of other bodies at the same time thanks to the benefits Phantom Tech has the user. Though, these are not the only perks of having The Phatnom Tech upgrades.
In addition to all of that listed above, after having this surgery performed on a character, they'll be able to make a list of major add-ons to their body thanks to it now being converted for the 25th Century's hi-tech fighting styles. For instance, if a character were to undergo this procedure on their body, they would then be allowed to use certain items from places like The Cybermind in order to enhance their body. This can range from giving their body self-destruction cores to detonate when they are near death, having thousands of bullets hidden inside of their body, attaching weapons like plasma rifles or fire canons to their arms, having dozens of internal computers inside of their body to monitor their body health or gathering information, having eyes that have X-Ray vision to see through hidden opponents, having an adjusted body that can split itself into multiple pieces to avoid taking more serious injury and so on and so forth. Whatever you can imagine that is Hi-Tech, is whatever can be done with the Phantom Tech user's body.
The Surgery Itself
How does all of this work? Well, when most people have the surgery performed on them it a process where the normal brain is physically fused together with electronic components, cybernetic attachments and stabilizers to produce an augmented organ referred to as a Phnatom Brain, Cyberbrain or Soul Brain. It allows the brain to become fully free of it's physical attachment in some cases, grants users access to multiple computer systems, gives them increased knowledge and everything stated above in The Phantom Tech Information section. However, for beings like Shinigami or Arrancar that have already passed, there is a secondary aspect that is added on to the surgery; The Soul Aspect. When a Shinigami goes through this surgery, not only is their brain fused together with the electronic parts, but their soul is sometimes fused together inside of it in order to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Another method is fusing the Zanpukto Spirit inside of the brain and giving the Shinigami full control over the rest of their body in order to keep the balance between their own cybernetic powers, the Zanpukto spirit's powers and ensure their body doesn't freak out.
Side Notes: A Cyberbrain/Phantom Tech Brain operates similarly to a human-like brain. In order to make the body respond to the brain, the different parts it controls or additional abilities; it shoots off electrical signals through a mass of wiring that gives it the the basics on motion. The thought process is close to the same as a fully organic brain. However, to prevent outside manipulation, sometimes users of the Soul Variety tend to simply send out immense burst of spiritual energy to make their components move. For example, a Shinigami would simply use his reiatsu in order to fuel the different parts of his enhanced body.
The Different Types of Cyberbrain's
Not everyone tends to have the same Cyberbrain as the uses can vary from person to person. As such, some people Simplistic Brains where they simply use it to access upgrades that these bodies can access which can lead to many different wonders like accessing all the different networks that exist, being able to upgrade your body at will and being freed from your physical body. However, others take it to a whole another level, such as in Shadin Yuudeshi's case, and end up creating brain's that damn near can change the world. For instance, Shadin's Cyberbrain allows him to, if he wishes, to bring part sof the Virtual World into reality, grants him Imaginary Computation that brings tangible things into existence from his imagination based on his Quantum Level of Computation and can even control hundreds, if not, thousands of different bodies at once as it is shown he can control hundreds of his own clones without batting a single eyelash. So what level of Cyberbrain you want is up to the character; rather they want to use it passively, or aggressively is up to you.
Note: Shadin is an EXTREME example of what the Phantomtech can do.
Note 2: If you want Phantom Tech and you are not a Shinigami/Arrancar/Vizard/Ziamichi, you will most likely have to use The Cybermind and order their Cyberbrain to make use of Phantom Tech's powers.
To add Phantom Tech to your appilcation, please copy this template
PhatomTech: (Does your character have a PhatomTech brain installed? If so, you'll be able to qualify for upgrade at the Cybermind or add other Cybernetic parts to your character to make them stronger)
Phantom Tech Abilities: (What can your character do with his or her's add-ons? This applies to any upgrades your character has gotten from places like The Cybermind as well.
Phantom Tech Powers: (This refers to things outside of Add-ons unlike Abilities. What Phantom Tech Powers are, in a sense, is basically what kind of power did your character gain from having a Cyberbrain? For example, Shadin Yuudeshi gained Imaginary Computation with his Cybernetic upgrades and has the ability to bring tangible things into existence with his computers Quantum Calculations.)
