 +Each player becomes a POP Unit in the fiction of the game, and interacts with other machines of all types.

The profile supplies Features of the machine, which are like something special about that. Maybe they can jump very far, or fire wire from their arms, and so on. Profiles are linked to Size class, so a specific profile is only available in one Size class.

 A Dot is something the system can't identify. One of the ways POP units service the system is to clear Dots. They do this by figuring out what the Dot is and dealing with it, usually turning it into a Beep or a Bloop. A Dot is something the system can't identify.

 +===== Universal Machine Specs =====
 +
 +POP Units follow a much deeper exploration of their specs, but for other machines a simpler universal spec system is used. Each rating falls into the range of 1 to 15, with 3.5 considered '​average',​ 7 exceptional. Here are the ratings for all non-POP unit machines:
 +
 +  * **Size**: The size of the machine.
 +    * Mapping into unit classes -> 1-3 is Class-E, 4-5 is Class-H, 6+ is Class-U. 12+ is Class-X (Holy cow).
 +  * **Rush**: The speed of the machine.
 +  * **Power**: The strength of the machine.
 +  * **cClock**: The processing power of the machine.
 +
 +===== Legacy Machines =====
 +
 +These machines are often still around, but reminders of lost eons.
