Fuchi Holopet/Holoassistant


Only from the minds at Fuchi could you find two unique different
applications of the same technology.
The Holopet is a descendent of the "digital pets" of the late 1990ís. A
holographic critter of whatever species you choose will animate and behave
as close to the real thing as possible within approved safety parameters.
Your child must play with it, feed it, etc. or it will sicken and die.
A great way to teach a child the responsibility of owning a pet, without the
tragic loss of animal life that the traditional method causes. Also, the
Holopet is perfect for those enclave dwellers who are unable, due to housing
or rules to have a real pet.
Current popular models include traditional dog and cat, as well as fun
awakened species as Baby Dragon, and L'il Griffin

----------

The Holoassistant is just the thing for those busy executives that need a
personal assistant, but their travel schedule or position does not allow
them to utilize a live secretary.
A new advancement on the popular "Pocket Secretary", the HoloAssistant
combines excellent date keeping databases, voice recognition dictation, and
a full suite of office software with an attractive animated hologram
available in several attractive models, and genders.

You can dictate letters, memos, compose email, have the news read to you,
have novel-chips read to you, store recipes, even online special interest
groups are availble through membership in our private, secure HA-Series BBS,
as well as other "adult" entertainment options.

Specify male/female, age, hair and eye color, as well as build when
ordering.
NEW SPECIAL - We can now outfit your holoassistant with any face you
specify. Want your HA to sport your wife's face? No problem! How about
popular celebrities? Anyone in the Fuchi stable is available. Allow an extra
3 days for delivery.

----------

Holopet - 25 nuyen (includes holoprojector and software)
Holoassistant - 45 nuyen (includes holoprojector and software - add 20 nuyen
for adult package, 20 nuyen additional for custom hologram)

----------

drek, but it does one valuable thing for us scroffy runner types - it gives
us information! Does Mr. Suit have a holoassistant imaged as a major
simstarlet? Now you know one of his weaknesses. Does the kid you need to
extract have a Baby Dragon holopet? Maybe a well placed illusion would lure
him away from a crowd to where he can more easily be extracted.

gear firing an assault rifle. They're cheap, and you can sprinkle them
liberally about a perimeter for when the drek hits the circulator.

(>) Hehe, this is amusing to see finally marketed by someone, though I'm
suprised it was Fuchi that put it out first. Renraku's had the tech for at
least a year now.
See, I did a run against them about a year ago that went bad (the
whole thing ended up being VR anyways, but that's another story). Anyways,
along the way we met up with a chummer that we knew was dead! I'd seen him
take a dive from a half mile up when his parachute "failed". Well, at some
point during the run we "acquired" a holographic emitter that had Billy's
brainwave patterns recorded into it, making it semi-arificially intelligent.
Named the thing the "Billy-Gram". if you know why, you're showing

Ok, guys did anyone of you know the Wilp Palms mini series?
They had a very evil way for holos, as an alterned reality which comes over
the TV.
And what is better they invented a drug that let his user "feel" and interact
with a holo.

Any interresest, for a SR make up of this stuff?

Certainly enough to freak someone out, at least for a few seconds. Of
course, at the suggested price of 40 nuyen, one would think this would be
so commonplace that it would be totally expected. (BTW, I think 40
nuyen, given costs for other TriDeo projection units in the SR timeline,
is a bit too cheap.)
But the hack modification is definitely a good idea; what's to
stop a decker/electronics wiz from doing that in other places as well?
Too often, decking in SR is only obtaining data through IC-combat, but
there are much more subtle ways of doing it. And, of course, if that
fails, you can always re-design someone's SmartToaster (R) to blow their
head off with a well-aimed piece of toast...

(>) No Sasquatch, what we are talking about is modifying your _own_
holo-assistant. Here's the scheme. . . You replace the Hologram of the
normal secretary with a recording of a Big Troll with a HMG. on your way
into a job you plant the projector so that when activated it looks to the
Security slags like there is a Big Troll hiding behind that planter trying
to clear a jammed round out of his HMG. While they are concentrating on
the Holo-threat you can escape or take the slags out from their flank.

One word of warning. Any para-criters that use astral sight (or percieving
mage types for that matter) are going to see right through this type of
trick.

I don't have my Shadowbeat on hand right now, so I'm not sure what the goign
rates for holoprojectors are.
How far off am I?
I'm assuming that the units used by the Holopet/Holoassistant are VERY
inexpensive models.
Kind of the difference between a $250 CD players, and a $10 Walkman
knockoff.

Any input about the price of these units?
Remeber the one is definately made for kids, and as such, will be CHEAP!

Well, one should always bear in mind that if the HoloAssistant is in any
way, shape, or form like the Pocket Secretary(Which it sounds like it is)
that the Pocket Secretary is in the neighborhood of 3000 Nuyen. An
alternative is to sell them as add-on systems, which would make a bit
more sense for the price. According to Paolo's SRCG datafiles, a tabletop
holotank runs about 500, a desktop about 1000, and a full holotank runs
5000. For a holo-emitter that's easily portable, figure about 5000 -
that's micronized from a desktop model, and takes into account the time
difference(SOTA, don'cha know).

For one thing I don't really agree with the customization cost. Even if
it's really cheap to add into such a device, a megacorp would make it cost
a lot more money -- after all a holo-thingy with _your_ choice of face is
a really exclusive item, and so should cost quite a lot (in the mind of
the public). Not that it should be 10,000 nuyen or whatever, but it
should be more than 20Y extra, IMHO.

Shadowbeat doesn't have much holo stuff, all I could find on a quick
browse-through is a wide-field holophone, for 1,500Y on page 99.

Unless I'm severely mistaken, those are Cyberpunk 2020 items from
Chromebook 2 (I sort of know the guy who put them into the datafile :)
The prices are straight 1:1 conversions from CP2020, because I couldn't
find any SR equivalents.

This is my first contribution to NERPS. I hope I did everything right.

MASC (myomere acceleration system circuit)

The MASC-system increases the Strength, Quickness and Reaction for 1
point per level of cyberlimbs due a short overstress on the servo and
hydraulic mechanisms of the limb. The user must have at least one pair
of cyberlimbs to make effective use of the cyberlimb. The MASC-system
and the adrenal pump are NOT compatible. The system includes a
high-effiency battery which causes the over-stress. The system can be
used for a maximum of 6 rounds per level. it can be aktivated due a
cybernetic command, which is a Free Action. There is a increaing 5%
chance per round of use that the whole system shuts down an causes
secondyry damage. If the system fails all boni become mali. Each point
subtracted counts as a Light wound for purposes of repair and must be
repaired by a skilled cybertechnican. It takes 20-30 minutes till the
batteries has reach her initial powerstatus again (18+2d6).

Cyberware shilding and armour
==============================
Additional to normal hard or soft armour, cyberlimbs can be shielded
against serveral harmfull incluences or forms of damage. 3 additional
shieldings can be installed per point of Body enhancement . Soft or hard
armour do NOT count to this.

Soft Armour
-----------
See Cybertech Sourcebook, suggested maximum level is 8.

Hard Armour
-----------
See cybertech sourcebook, suggested maximum level is 8.

Electromagnetic shielding
-------------------------
The EM-shielding protect the user against all kinds of shocks. Examples
are tasers, emp-grenades, critter powers like lightning or shock-gloves
and so on. The shilding plus one-half of the normal impact armour
protect the coverd limb. Maximum level for the EM-shielding is 3.

Thermal isolation
-----------------
Thermal isolation protectes the coverd limb agaimnst extrem
temperatures, both extrem high and low temperatures. Additional to that
the thermal isolation lowers the users IR signature. Increase all TN for
IR-based awarness-test for the doubble level of the thermal isolation.
if the character is spoted, still increase all TN in ranged combat for
the simple level if thew attacker is unsing thermal vision. The full
level of the thermal isolation plus one-half of the impact armour
protect against temperatur caused damage.

Scanner shielding
-----------------
The simple level of this shielding increases all TN for detecting
cyberware in the covered limb.

SEMInatural covering
--------------------
Semibatural covering makes the cyberlimb look quite normal, but only if
the limb itself looks natural. The covering includes hairs, skin and
can't be distinquished form a normal limb by looking at it. Even on IR
