major cybernetics recall after hundreds fatally injured
The leading cybernetics manufacturer Maslaw Winterbiln & Pax has been forced recall millions of dollars-worth of products after a string of catastrophic incidents involving their products.
Several lines of cognitive modulators have been included in the recall, including the 77 series BIODRIVER and their hotly-anticipated (and now heavily-maligned) motorRUNNER 7800+. Consumers are also advised to avoid all models in the 75, 76 and 77 lines of the ConnectRITE implants until increased safety measures can be implemented.
The accidents caused as a result of these faulty products are as varied as they are grave.
Over 400 deaths have now been directly attributed to MWP implants. Included are dozens of accounts of parietal actuators causing people to uncontrollably jump hundreds of feet into the air (without the complimentary physiology to stick the landing), whilst others have reported seeing helpless victims spontaneously running off at speeds their legs were unable to match… to an unsurprisingly grisly end.
Other dysfunctions seem less commonplace but equally severe, and have been directly attributed to the cognitive defects as evidenced in pathophysiological reports.
Some of the worst xamples include: involuntary overriding of autonomic respiratory processes in brainstem causing sudden and violent asphyxiation; hyperstimulation of pathways terminating in limbic regions causing people to be fatally consumed by fits of rage, fear, or lust (the latter being, at least comparatively speaking, not a terrible way to go); and, in the case of some of the older models, constitutional activation in endocrine pathways resulting in chronic, irreversible hormone damage that is only now manifesting as a result of these dodgy cybernetics.
Top consumer attorney Wildwell Dalton will be representing several of the victims’ families, in what is expected to become a bellwether trial of hundreds more brought against MWP over the coming months:
“While there is always an element of risk involved in cybernetic modification, consumers should expect these products to work as expected. The sudden and alarming loss of control people have been experiencing as a result of using these implants — which are designed to enhance peoples’ lives, not end them — is a clear sign that manufacturers like MWP are failing in their responsibility to protect those who use and trust their products.”
The malfunctions are currently being attributed to cheap components and lazy wiring, though there may be reason to believe that something more intentional, and therefore more sinister, is at play here.
A spokesperson from MWP declined to comment, possibly due to a fault in their AFF (arcuate fasciculus facilitator) drive.
