OUT

The Orgasmotron — so last millennium

The 'Dervish' inner-ear disturbance rig — People are sick of it

TranceMod 10K ('Achieve zazen satsumi instantly, without having to spend all those years in training...') — The meditation technique for the lazy zen master

IN

TINGLE! (the nano-sensor activation chem) — modos are itching to get hold of this

FryBoy (makes it seem like various body parts real, remembered, or imagined are burning) — this is the new hot sensation

DREAMMASTER (TM) — for all those perpetually aware beings out there, NOW YOU TOO CAN DREAM!!!) — All the richness, beauty, and emotionally stabilizing effects without the inconvenience of actually sleeping!

Twitch — sends random pulses to borg apps, causing random behavior. — VERY much the thing at clubs for cyborgs who think they can't dance
