After this process, Long Yu's original bare torso was now hidden under a layer of matt silver armor. The upper part where the chest is located has an accentuated front, with a circular cavity the size of an adult's fist in the middle. This is where the power core occupies, which allows for activation of any modified abilities that is bestowed to the armor.
Moreover, two strips of glowing turquoise lines stretch diagonally from the waist and intersect with the rim of the cavity, before continuing up the shoulders, creating an X shaped design.
As for the appearance of the armor on his limbs, they stayed the same, with a streamlined design.
Long Yu was satisfied with the overall aesthetics of the suit. Its appearance was futuristic yet not too overly robotic, which fitted his taste.
With a thought, nano-machines immediately flowed from the spinal area and constructed a helmet which fully encapsulated Long Yu's head.
The front surface of the helmet is separated with a line, which extends from the forehead down to the sharp edged chin.
Two rectangular sockets angling slightly downwards decorated the eye area of the helmet. They radiated the same glowing turquoise light, creating the illusion of an imposing glare.
Inside the helmet, Long Yu was looking at a few interfaces that provided basic information. It showed the condition of the armor and wearer, while also monitoring for damages. Furthermore, the helmet also provides sight enhancement such as zooming, night vision and infrared. However all these functions in the helmet are only basic of the basics. It seems like the interface could be improved in the future through modification.
After fiddling with the settings for a bit, Long Yu retracted the helmet. Although it wasn't uncomfortable by any means, it was unnecessary to keep it on when there was no need to.
He then decided to test the basic ability of the suit, which requires him to control the nano-machines manually with his mind. This ability came with the suit and did not need a power core to be utilised. It gave him actual control over the nano-machines, unlike previously where the form was fixed.
As he closed his eyes and imagined a weapon forming on his right hand, the nano-machines immediately assembled themselves into a sharp dagger which extended from Long Yu's fist.
Then, the dagger began to slowly change into a double edged long sword, which appearance was similar to a claymore.
Unsatisfied with the design, Long Yu played around with various iterations before finally settling with a weapon.
The blade, one meter long, has a triangular narrowing shape with an extremely sharp tip. Its design made it suitable for stabbing and slashing attacks. As for defensive weapons, he also constructed a shield to his liking.
Finished with the test, Long Yu focused on his other agenda. He took out a blood healing fruit and placed it beside him.
Next, he recalled the suit into his body and shifted position to place his left leg flat on the bed. His eyes glimmered with a blue light, indicating that he just activated the x-ray contact lenses.
With the help of the x- ray vision, Long Yu could see the insides of his left leg, including the bones. Unlike normal people, there was a malunion in his tibla bone, which was caused by the tragic accident during his childhood.
Although he lived, the medical treatment he received was poor to say the least. His family had no insurance, and his relatives were unwilling to fork out too much money to pay for the medical bills.
Thus, he only received a minimum and sloppy treatment from the only available medical centre in his area. As a child, he didn't know the proper way to take care of his injuries either.
Not receiving the proper therapy he needed, the broken bone in his left leg eventually healed, but not perfectly. As he aged, the malunion started to impede the movement in his leg, causing him to limp. Eventhough it could be fixed with surgery, it costs a lot and no one was willing to pay for it anyway. Even after when he got older and started earning money, it was impossible to get the surgery done. It would immobilise his leg for at least 6 months, not to mention that he would not be able to work during that period.
After Long Yu obtained the nano-machine exoskeleton armor, it allowed him simulate the movement of a perfectly fine leg and even improved it. Although it could be considered a permanent solution, he always meant to someday fix the problem.
With the means he has now, Long Yu could finally heal his left leg properly. He started to meticulously control the nano-machines inside his leg to form a small blade, which moved at his command.
An hour later, Long Yu's head was soaked with sweat. Mental fatigue started to set in from the intense concentration and pain.
'Finally done!' he exclaimed in his mind upon completion.
He had carefully cut the tibla bone and realigned it perfectly with the help of the nano-machines. Long Yu then used a layer of the nano-machines to wrap around the reconnected area to prevent it from moving out of place.
Once this was done, he took the blood healing fruit beside him in his hand. Although he was slightly put off by the fact that the fruit was formed from the blood essence of others, its invaluable benefits was undeniable.
He hesitantly bit into the fruit, fearing that it might taste like blood. To his surprise, the fruit tasted refreshingly sweet. Its texture was somewhere between a tomato and a plum.
Long Yu subconsciously savoured the taste in his mouth before swallowing it. He then proceeded to finish the whole thing, with its sweet taste lingering in his mouth.
'That little lass would probably like this…' Long Yu mused as he wiped away the juice from the corner of his lips.
Moments later, Long Yu could feel his blood boiling. He felt as if there was a hot wave raging inside his bloodstream. After circling his insides once, it directly charged towards his just realigned tibla bone.
