It's about time for a thread dedicated to the good stuff. Good ol' future-tech. Anything related to high-tech, low-life goes here.

What is cyberpunk? How do we define it? We all know it when we see it but what qualities are there? Spandex? Dystopia? What kind of futuristic tech? Obviously not sleek efficient stuff? W H A T I S C Y B E R P U N K


High tech, low life.


gentlemen, we have arrived unto the future.


Basically >>90
It has to do with technology effecting people's lives which can be anyone from the richest to the poor.

Just a reminder that cyberpunk is now.

Am I delusional, or is that a fuffing Wiimote?


This is cool, but soykaf as hell. It's just a pi, wiimote, projector, and good design team.
This being said, it is crafty, and gives me ideas for more practical uses for similar tech.


Is there much difference between cyberpunk and steampunk cultures? Obviously the aesthetic is different, however the idea of the soft/pampered and oppressive/controlling rich/government class partered with the rugged savvy lower class seems present in both genres.


the difference is: >>106
while steampunk is just some historically inspired fantasy.


also steampunk dorks tend to pretend to be the rich and cyperpunk dorks pretend to be the punks.


Anyone knows what is it like to live in a cyberpunk city?


I'll argue New York City is at the point of cyberpunk, especially since it's one of the least American places to be in within the USA.

NYC cost of living and tense competition makes you push yourself in order to keep afloat, unless you want to get tossed in welfare and live in one of the many projects this city has to offer. You might even join the growing homeless population that the city likes to ignore if you can't get welfare.

On top of that, NYPD is said to be the 7th strongest army in the world and for good reason too. It's well supplied to counter terrorism, extremely organized, good manpower and quite aggressive when it comes to doing their job and beyond. They set up an extensive amount of cameras throughout Manhattan with a response time of a minute or less. They also know how to suppress any form of resistance.

Crime hasn't been as bad as it was like in the 70s or 80s, but once in a while there's a gun bust in The Bronx. The Bronx is the worst part out of all the five boroughs. It's highly ignored and avoided by many besides those that come from that area. Recently it faced a outbreak of legionnaires 'twice' in the same month with over 100 hospitalized, just to give you a idea how ignored that borough is.

With all that, it's a very trendy city with in the now popular culture. People wearing the latest clothing, using the current tech trend, there is always something happening in the city and really doesn't sleep. It's as close as one will get to a overpopulated dense sprawl you'll get in the United States.


I've lived in NYC all my life, it's way more boring then you describe.

Kek, all NYC represents today is disneyfication and gentrification. Its trendy in the sense of vapid consumerism, there's no sense of antagonistic alternative culture, i.e. when it's all white moms, there's no resistance to suppress. It's basically Atlanta.

Taipei, Hong Kong or possibly Shanghai are cyberpunk. They're organized but lawlessness slips through the cracks. Bars in apartments, street carts lining alleys long past midnight, semi-legal markets selling counterfeit and knockoff clothing and hardware at dirt cheap prices. Cigarettes, motorbikes and techno shows in concrete basements and bunkers. Ketamine, ecstasy, cocaine. But also high industry, money flowing through the commercial district and big luxury malls. Not really any sense of surveillance or a police state, though

I've only lived in Taipei but it looks just like the city in Ghost in the Shell: SAC.
