For questions regarding cyberware, a term for hardware and/or machinery implanted into the human body to enhance it past its natural capabilities.


Cyberware is based on a science fiction concept where technology has advanced to a point where implanting hardware in the body is both affordable and efficient.

Early stages can be seen in the real world today, with cochlear implants and artificial body parts or even pacemakers being very helpful for people with disabilities.

In science fiction, this so-called cyberware has become so efficient and effective that people use it not only to lessen the impact of disabilities, but also to enhance perfectly healthy humans to levels beyond their natural limits.

Normally, cyberware is named after the bodypart it enhances, so across genres you will find "cyber-eyes", "cyber-arms", and so on.
