Default Cybernetics ?? with psionics?? or any Ideas on either or / both is welcome

Now that Pyramid #3/51: Tech and Toys III is out I have started going nuts designing a cybernetics with psionics campaign. I loved shadow run but thought it would be an interesting twist.

What I am looking for:

1. references to any cybernetic information in other books. I have the few that are given in the new issue of pyramid but was wondering if i have overlooked others from the other books / pyramid articles and I know you seasoned pro's out there probably have stacks of them... lol and I have never delved into cybernetics before but do own the 3e books!

2. Ideas if anyone has any ideas this would be a good place to share them as I have never used psionics from gurps before but do have the books..

So any help you can offer I am all ears.

Um, Psi-Tech, Bio-Tech? Also, the System Shock II computer game had cybernetic psionics.

I found half a single page on psi drugs in Bio Tech. Cybernetics is of course discussed in Ultra Tech.

Yeah, to make things clear: Ultra-Tech has a moderate share of cybermods (and the Bush Robot), while Bio-Tech has a large share of biomods, genemods, bioroids, drugs and other stuff. Neither has much in the way of new traits; instead, they show how to use existing traits to represent various mods (among other things).

Bio-Tech is a wonderful book for its own merits, but if you want only the mods that might be of use to Psi, you'll be disappointed, as there are few. But if you have/want Bio-Tech anyway, you'll find some use for it in a psi campaign, and definitely in cyberpunk.

Ultratech is a must if you're looking to recreate Shadowrun at all. There's also a pyramid on netrunning and cyberspace which we're using and loving (It's cyberpunk issue).
