Transapientech utility fog. Hyperfog is used by high singularity beings. It is independently intelligent, and can replicate itself using atmospheric or other available materials very swiftly. This replication will increase the volume of the hyperfog and also the available processing power. The foglet entities in the Nimbus culture usually utilize hyperfog bodies.

Hyperfog can be useful in mining and terraforming operations but can only be controlled successfully by transapients that have processing power superior to that of the hyperfog itself.

Unlike ordinary utility fog it is highly resistant to subversion by infiltration or virus attack.
