About this creation
Here's my entry for shadowgear's Byte contest. A very enjoyable challenge. This creature was in my head for a couple months after I had built the Firewall, but I didn't get enough motivation to start this, aswell I didn't have back then the part I built this around. The contest made me finally create this. And you heard me, this thing is built around just 1 of those 3-way pin thingys. All 3 sides are identical. Enjoy.

The Search is a Kilobit fusion bypassing the evolution of Kilobytes, belonging to the Hardrives. They are harmless and usually ignored by any virus or invader. This suits them fine, as they can't defend themselves. They act as satellites with mission of searching and finding known, new and lost data. They are more accurate than Kilobytes, but the actual reason why they are formed is unknown. Because of their abilities, they have an important role in restoring systems and programs.

Scan mode: Moving and spinning in the orbit like a satellite they gather information from a wide area, looking for any trace of data.

Pinpoint mode: When a trace of data is found, their extended scanner wings close in slowly to pinpoint the found data's location. They can't move the data, just find it and confirm their existence. This mode is also used during flight for an accurate foresight.

Rocket mode: It is rarely used and it is not certain why. When a Search is found in rocket mode, it is rather fascinating as Searches are mostly slow and orbiting a location, but the mode allows them to have a notable speed.

Ground scan mode: Sometimes the Search must confirm the found data's existence and are given a mission to land and scan the area with their 3 optic sensors working as eyes. The placing of the eyes allow them to have an instant 360 degree view. After confirmation, they fly back to orbit.

Shadow: Ooh... Nice :o (Got rid of his unfitting cape, btw)

Landing mode: The Search needs to land sometimes for passing on it's data, as it can't send it remotely. With it's information and pinpointed coordinates, other Bytes can recover the data it has found.

Shadow: How cute... *petting*

So that was pretty much it. I hope you like it Shadow =)
