Technology is a passive item.
Effects[edit | edit source]
- Replaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range, but does not fire over rocks and obstacles.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Laser rate of fire is determined by the tears stat. This differentiates the item from Technology 2Decreases damage and replaces right eye tears with a unlimited range, piercing laser which fires continuously. which fires a continuous beam, and Tech.5Grants a unlimited range piercing laser with random rate of fire that does not replace tears. The laser might occasionally fire with the effect of a random item or trinket, such as Hook Worm, Spoon Bender or Tiny Planet. which has a random fire rate.
- If Blue Baby takes Technology, the eye left uncovered by the device will look like a normal eye and not an X.
Synergies[edit | edit source]
- Apple!Increases tears. Adds a chance to fire a high-damage razor blade. / EuthanasiaAdds a chance to fire needles. If a needle kills an enemy, it bursts into more needles. / Tough LoveAdds a chance to shoot a tooth instead of a tear, which deals greater damage than regular tears.: The lasers can gain the damage multiplier from each of the items, although there is no visual difference. Euthanasia loses its instant kill ability, however.
- BrimstoneTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period.: Overrides Technology.
- The Technology laser coils around the Brimstone beam, granting a 1.5x damage multiplier.
- Chocolate MilkGrants charged tears that deal greater damage when fully charged.: Increases fire rate by adjusting tear delay down, allowing going below the normal minimum.
- Epic FetusIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Fires lasers in all directions upon impact of a missile.
- Fire MindGrants flaming tears that deal burning damage over time. Tears have a chance to explode on impact with an enemy, which creates a fire at the location of the explosion.: Laser lights enemies on fire but loses ability to explode enemies.
- The Inner EyeGrants triple shot but decreases tears.: Isaac shoots 3 lasers with decreased rate of fire.
- The Ludovico TechniqueInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy.: The laser becomes a large ring that is controllable and looks like a Tech XTears are replaced with laser rings that pierce through enemies and deal damage to enemies within them. Can be charged to increase the size of the ring. shot. Enemies inside the ring without touching it are not hurt. Shot speed is ignored.

- ProptosisTears start out massive with high damage, and then shrink down and become weaker over a short range.: Doubles damage.
- Doubles damage but it rapidly decreases with distance, down to 0.1 from about 6 tiles away.
- Soy MilkTears shrink and do much less damage, but fire in very rapid succession.: Expected high damage down and very high tears up. Because Technology has no knockback like standard tears, this will generally be a good DPS increase.
- Tech XTears are replaced with laser rings that pierce through enemies and deal damage to enemies within them. Can be charged to increase the size of the ring.: Both fire at the same time.
- Ouija BoardGrants spectral tears that travel through obstacles (but not enemies) instead of breaking on impact with them.: Tears will be able to penetrate both obstacles and enemies.
- Technology 2Decreases damage and replaces right eye tears with a unlimited range, piercing laser which fires continuously.: Both fire at the same time.

- Hook WormTears move shifting left to right forming a path of right angles. +10 to Range (effective range remains about the same).: Laser follows a square wave, which increases its hitbox.

- : Additionally, gives a flat +4 damage.
- Jacob's LadderTears fire sparks of electricity in random directions upon hitting an obstacle or enemy.: Overridden by Technology.
- A Lump of CoalThe more distance tears travel, the more damage they will do.: No effect.
- Damage increases the further away the enemy is, on a multiplier that is roughly +20% per tile of distance. This allows for a huge damage increase from longer distances.
- Mom's KnifeIsaac's tears are replaced by a knife that pierces enemies, can travel through obstacles, and can hurt enemies while Isaac is holding it. Holding down the fire button before firing increases its range and power.: Overrides Technology.
- Both fire normally.
- When playing as Lilith, Mom's Knife overrides Technology.
- Mom's KnifeIsaac's tears are replaced by a knife that pierces enemies, can travel through obstacles, and can hurt enemies while Isaac is holding it. Holding down the fire button before firing increases its range and power. + The Ludovico TechniqueInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy.: The laser ring becomes centered on Isaac and cannot be controlled, and the knife can not be fired. This makes some rooms impossible to do without a familiar.

- Number One+1.5 tears, -15.77 range: Expected tears up and the laser's color turns yellow.
- Pupula DuplexTransforms Isaac's tears into a wide arc shape which gives them a much larger hitbox. Gives Isaac spectral tears which allows them to travel through objects in the environment (i.e. rocks).: Laser becomes spectral.
- The ParasiteIsaac's tears split in two when they hit something.: Overridden by Technology.
