Bullet Time, For the Police
http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2014/04/sheriffs-deputy-compares-drone-surveillance-of-compton-to-big-brother/360954/

This is current, and real.  It is the total surveillance of a city.

The idea is that a large area can be photographed with high resolution cameras, then when something happens, the police can pull up that exact location.  But here's the fun part, the police can go forward or backward in time from that location, and see where you came from or where you went to.  (Going forward in time is only an option long after the fact.)  I think that if you added this to your game it would radically alter play.

This is a really good article, and could certainly be used to add some flair and attitude to your characters.  (When is 5E getting jigsaw faces?)

I love how the Atlantic spins this to sound like the end of the world - yet it's been tremendously effective in London and other major cities.  I think the fact that the Componites weren't told about it is pretty ridiculous, though.  There's no need to hide that you're doing overwatch surveillance.  Anyway, I agree that this type of technology absolutely should exist in Shadowrun - it's happening now, 60 years in the past.

3D Printing of HOUSES!
http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9249532/3D_printer_constructs_10_buildings_in_one_day_from_recycled_materials

This brings a whole new dimension prefab...  Its just plain fab.

Namikaze: My issue with total surveillance in Shadowrun is that the players will go through a lot of extra detail in a mission, which might not be fun.  They have to plan how they get to a crime seen undetected, and how to leave.  The game is more fun when its about a chase.  On the other hand, I think ruthenium fibers, and crowds are your friend.  On a personal level, I'm tracking the sheer amount of public exposure many of the player's actions are having, and I think the need to burn IDs should be frequent.

I couldn't agree more.  I like to make them feel the paranoia of having ads pop up in AR that weren't there before, and things like that to remind them that they're far from untouchable.  They exist on the periphery, and only at the whims of their clients.  :)

OK, it's post-apocalyptic and not cyberpunk, but it does feature Charlize Theron with a cyberarm and all kinds of crazy gangers. I could imagine a Shadowrun adventure with this kind of stuff: desert wars, motorgangs, manastorm, and awesomeness.

Alright! I was just coming in here to bemoan the dearth of fodder for this page, those scientists need to get cracking!!

Good catch there Marzhin, I've been to busy these last three days to watch that. Thanks.

Looks like the Horrors may have found a way to get at us after all. (this would be a really cool translation to SR)
