Posthuman and subhuman in equal parts.
She likes someone she can easily overpower and is all around superior to
Just like my dream girl
Also probably has shit self esteem or loves having a bitch of a hubby
Either one is also good for my dream girl
18 was my first cartoon waifu
>How do you like your cyborgs /tg/?
Sensual and horrifying in equal measures.
Jesus Christ, that isn't a shoop is it?
For what purpose?
Menacing, inhuman, and a little crazy
Cyborg girls are the only thing where 3d > 2d
>fictional people are better than real people unless real people are made out of factory-produced items
Man, the fear of fellow man evident in these posts is astounding.
Just as your quivering terror at robots is apparent from yours, palarino
>Not finding robots and fleshbags equally erotical
Free from the confines of a bipedal humanoid existence
that only removes small parts of it. you would not be implying that we would replace the repository of our Emperor-Given soul with some kind of artificially intelligent cogitator, would you?
One: They Do Good, are good at what they do, or both.
Two: The robot parts must be weaponized.
>Being allowed to compete in a race with perfect infallible robot legs
What bullshit. Can I just sit in a car and call it a prosthetic? No really judge, I deserve a gold medal for running 120 mph on my prosthetic leg, I'm a hero.
Fuck that shit, prosthetic legs are better than human legs, anyone with them needs to be in a separate division entirely or have any and all awards and records stripped.
Oh don't get me wrong, I am in full support of the idea that athletes cut their legs off to get robot feet. I also think steroids shouldn't only be legalized, but mandatory, that football player's shouldn't be allowed to wear pussy armor, and that during halftime they should release starving lions and the surviving team members have to finish the game.
I am totally down with escalating regular sports to bloodsports. They play a game for a living, I don't give a fuck if their balls shrink, I wanna see them hit more homeruns. But since we're never going to get that, I think it's bullshit that I'm expected to be amazed that some asshole managed to beat world records in running when he has unfeeling unbreaking metal feet that were designed specifically for running and function better than human feet.
If we ban the shit that would be FUN to watch because it's "unfair" or "dangerous" then fuck off trying to tell me to be impressed by cyborgs. If you got no legs, you should either have to hop with the normies or run with the rest of the cyborgs. If fair is the ideal then fair should be the standard.
I imagine it's less a race and more a technological showcase. Different companies getting the best users of their best products to show off and boost sales. One corp produces legs that are faster, but another might have patented magnetic shock absorbers. One product line of sleek, nearly organic looking hardware, another line that costs less and performs almost as well but might be ugly as shit. Subtle implants compared to towering machine bodies. So much competition and so many niches to fill after all.
I'm a big fan of cyborgs whose mechanical components have been decorated/stylized in some way. Aside from just being more visually interesting it also seems more real to me; most people wouldn't want grey mechanical instruments attached to them, they would want them to reflect their personality. People do this even for attractive pieces of industrial design like iProducts.
I'll say again. I'm not against the idea of cyborg sports. I am fully in support of cyborg sports. But I think it's bullshit that some bitch with no feet is allowed the use of engineered performance enhancing superfeet to make up for her failings, while her opponent isn't allowed to chug a big smoothie full of steroids and amphetamines to make up for theirs.
If she's allowed to use technology because she got no feet, I should be allowed to take drugs because I got no motivation to work out. Why is one allowed and the other isn't?
I'm 100% on board with cyborg only leagues, I'm not down with having cyborgs race humans and calling it fair when the cyborg wins.
I like mine with tons of angst and reflexions about humanity.
Pic semi-related since HK has some moments.
Usually they participate in paralympic games.
The IAAF is very careful not to let prothesis that provide an advantage over flesh legs take part.
I imagine the first thing to go for many tech priests would be the legs or more acuretly they would get augments to allow them to stand indifinintly
I like to think explorator ships have fuck all chairs because nobody ever needs to sit down
So is it possible to basically be nothing but a brain in a robotic squid?
If the essential parts of the brain are the minimum legal requirements and the flesh is unimportant then can a tech adept end up like one of the Sentinel robots from the Matrix film?
Because holy shit that image is beautiful.
Ye olde tech-patriarchs council in long red robes. The robes are only because tradition demand it. There isn't anything even remotely human shaped in there anymore.
>There isn't anything even remotely human shaped in there anymore.
these re loyalists, by the way
>obviously biological heads, decorated with random pipes and a chainsaw
>not even human heads
>they look like a bunch of tyranids that stole some bathrobes and raided a plumber's shop
what twisted tech heresy is this?
I'd see it more as different manufacturers/models for varying industries.
Construction cyborgs would differ from soldier cyborgs or athletic cyborgs. Maybe some use different parts with custom (illegal?) software to make them all work together well.
Example: military cyborg gets himself some runners legs so he can cover open ground better. Maybe a construction worker gets himself some weightlifting parts.
how is it alien consciousness if they've become cat people?
isn't that just cat people?
Sarah Stone. She does covers and I think occasionally interior work for Transformers comics. She has definitely 100% imagined being fucked by a Transformer before.
I'll post the others. She did some nice D&D art for 4e too, but I don't have that saved anymore.
They're almost certainly using fat people to get a higher weight allowance.
With interchangeable parts/bodies
From the shin down they might, but it is up for debate. They are springier, lighter, better traction, but you can't use the calf muscles.
It's hard to test without amputating someone and comparing the before and after since using different people as reference would be dumb.
If you read the Lords of Mars books, it pretty much say that all of the older, more advanced Magos do their own thing as they augment themselves. One Arch-Magos could still look completely human (if REALLY fake), while one guy literally had his brain cut apart and placed into glass cases that he moved around his robot-squid body. Most are somewhere between those two though
Don't have a whole album myself. But have some Viktoria Modesta, the woman with a legit wardrobe of legs.
Goddamnit, why hasn't Trayzan done this yet? He should do this
Transhuman Space does it this way. The Olympics gradually morphed into a trade show for genetic upgrades, bioroids, and cybernetics. Nobody thinks it's weird.
There's also a market for extreme sports like a short sprint across the moon-- without a spacesuit. Even the winners usually spend months in the hospital recuperating, and deaths are common.
The sprinting legs might be, but they are the only one. As soon as better "true-cyborg" parts become easily available I'm sure anybody who can afford them will get them, will get them. Whether it's augmented memory/brain power or strength/speed
Ex-libris of the french comic HK by trantkat. It's very good sci-fi from a third world pov, then it follows some soldiers at home against hostile civilians, and it got a couple very good sex scenes to boot (incl. one with a catgirl). Nice pro-life crazy cyborg, too.
Since it's for research purposes, check agape, a porn comic made by the same artist.

Get off 4chan, Pat. You're drunk, again.
Was this made by the same guy who made that star wars tie fighter animation?
Anyway, to answer OP, I like ones with visible robotic prosthesis, usually augmented in some way for weapons. But I don't like prosthesis that get too insane or bulky. It needs to be fairly close to the size of the original limb for me.
Either that, or 95% cyborg bodies like General Grievous. Not really a fan of the cyborgs/robots who are indistinguishable from humans. They serve a purpose sometimes, narratively, but they're just kinda boring to me.
