Andalites’ most valued piece of technology. After someone has touched the cube, such as the Animorphs, they gain the power to morph into any animal. The catches: (a.) one must acquire the genetic code of an animal before morphing into it, which involves touching it and hence a possible risk to life and limb, and (b.) there is a two-hour time limit before one becomes a nothlit and is trapped in their morph forever. Andalite engineers have worked desperately to overcome these disadvantages but to no avail.
