GAC: (gack) Gravity Amplification Component
Currently featured on prototype battle machines, the Gravity Amplification Component, or GAC, is an advanced electronic component used to amplify the affects of the most dominant gravitational field within a given area. The original design of the GAC had this affect uncontrolled, spreading it over whatever distance that certain GACís maximum range was. However, it was found that this technology was not practical, so the engineers behind the GAC worked on concentrating its affect within a controllable area. This was achieved.
Being the first prototype machine to feature the GAC, the Gravity used the GAC as both a means of locomotion as well as in its generators. Attached on either side of the most bottom portion of the Gravityís torso is a GAC. Along with an electromagnet, the GAC moves an entire leg on a radius. In a generator the GAC is at its summit of usefulness. It is possible for a generator to be created by a tube surrounded by wire, with a magnetic solid running through the tube. On the Gravity, the magnetic solid was replaced by the GAC surrounded by a magnet. Since the GAC would pull the magnet down, an electromagnet was added to outside the tube to pull the magnet back up again. The process of the GAC pulling the magnet down and the electromagnet pulling it up could be continued until the magnet is moving like a piston. This makes a very efficient generator. After the Gravity, its sequel, the Anti-Gravity, featured the GACG (Gravity Amplification Component Generator,) 2.0. Basically the same as the original GAC generator, the GACG 2.0 discarded the electromagnet. Replacing the electromagnet is the hydraulic equivalent of a spring. Placed beneath the GAC in this generator, the hydraulic spring replaces the electromagnet by rebounding the GAC so that it can then be pulled back down. The GACG is now the most efficient power generator invented by man, because it takes advantage of the most reliable source of energy on earth: gravity.
