Shells are designed with a wide-range of propulsion systems, and are sometimes built for a specific environment/gravity. Some synthmorphs may have multiple mobility systems. Many such systems are retractable, meaning they can be folded away into the shell’s frame.
Legs designed to propel the morph like a frog or grasshopper.
An impeller that blasts a cushion of high-pressure air off the surface below.
The shell uses principles of magnetohydrodynamics to levitate and fly.
Microlights encompass paragliders, autogyros, balloons, aerostats, and blimps.
This system allows the Synthmorph to roll like a ball.
Rotating blades create lift.
These shells use lateral undulation to move their frame forward.
Submarine shells use propellers or pumpjets to push through water.
Tracked shells use smart rotating treads to work their way across surfaces.
These shells use turbofans or turbojets to create lift with a set of wings.
Walkers use two or more limbs to walk or crawl across a surface.
Small motor driven wheels.
This system of four wings allows hovering or movement.
