Thaumatechnology is the Endowment of the hunter conspiracy the Cheiron Group in Hunter: The Vigil.

The Cheiron Group's use of science to examine the supernatural has produced an unusual and unstable mesh of the two. Thaumatechnology is almost frightening in how powerful it can potentially be, how horrifically wrong it can go, and, perhaps most importantly, how Cheiron agents must use it. They cannot simply be picked up and used; rather, all Thaumatechnology comes in the form of implants that require surgery to correctly connect it to the user bodies.

Implants can be connected "in the field", but the surgical skill required is high, and things can go disasterously awry, even under the best of conditions.
