So for a mere 63K and 6 capacity I can take one of my cybereyes for a cruise around the neighborhood, surefire chick getter. Now barring some majorly awesome eyeware in Augmentation why would this be much better than a Lonestar I-Ball? And more importantly what happens to my poor Occular Drone when someone stomps on it? Do I have to spend another 63K + the cyber eye and it's other ware or do I buy a tweaked I-ball with better capacity?

I just don't think it's worth anything near what they're asking unless you have a housecat.

rotfl.gif I would buy a cat just to make the drone worth it!!!

It's 3K.

I believe there's a typo involved in that price. 3,000 nuyen.gif is what I believe the general consensus is for the ocular drone.

I love the cat idea smile.gif

One of my player's had a private detective character (or should I say private eye dead.gif ) that had one of these and put it to great use.

i can see why given that there is no availability number.

While it is implied that you can't use the version of the I-Ball that has the flash packs, it doesn't explicitly state that. So you could potentially have an eye with a smoke bomb and flash pack in it...

See, i might allow that if they were actually the same piece of equipment. But they're not nyahnyah.gif

And the same sized, the I-Balls are stated to be about Softball sized.

they are said to be similar in function of a iball, not the same device.

Yeah after I thought about it I figured they might have added an extra 0 on that price, 3,000 is much more reasonable. I hope augmentation has something like an ocular Shiawase Kanmushi, nothing creepier than an eyeball crawling across the ceiling.

So, is there a hover version of the I-Ball? Basically something that is about the size of a softball that would hover behind/around you and be an extra eye. Like the drone on page 41 of the BBB, but about half the size? Then you could just load it up with a bunch of sensors and have it scope out an area before you need to go in. You could even add the smoke/flash-pak to it and really make it good.

So, how many ocular drones can a character get installed in his body at one time?

If it is anything like the Disrobe of Eyes then it might be worth trying.
