I'm a bit confused on how to set up skinlink on electronics. Would a player need a built-in commlink or a commlink connected to a trode net in order for the skinlink to work?

Skinlink allows you to interact with a device by contact instead of wifi and wires. Your body basically becomes the wire. So you need something on both end of that wire right?

Do you need a commlink? Yes, physical commlink or implant. Skinlink is just how you connect to the devices.

You also need the accessory on both ends. Whatever device you want and your commlink should have the accessory.

With skinlink, a device is adapted to send and receive data transmitted through the electrical field on the surface of metahuman skin. Though limited to touch, skinlink communication has the advantage of being protected from signal interception or jamming.

It depends on what type of electronics you're looking to connect. As I understand the above passage, Skinlink uses a body's natural electrical field to connect to any other external device that has Skinlink or any internal device within a Metahuman's body.

    \$\begingroup\$ Yes exactly, as it describes its just more secure/convenient than wires or WiFi. \$\endgroup\$
