Meta-tech is an object infused with dark matter, giving it a unique ability similar to meta-humans. These objects could be anything, from high tech innovations (e.g. a cell phone) to rudimentary implements (e.g. an odd-shaped dagger), but they all have to common trait of granting the person who wields them abilities of a meta-human; which, in some cases, were even more powerful than those of the empowered beings themselves.

They were initially created after the Flash and XS destroyed the falling S.T.A.R. Labs satellite, which was imbued with dark matter.


When the the Flash and XS destroyed the falling S.T.A.R. Labs satellite knocked out of orbit by Clifford DeVoe after the Enlightenment failed, the debris, laced with dark matter, rained down on 46 different locations in Central City,[1] with the shrapnel transforming any object it hit into meta-tech.[2]
