Not to be confused with Tech.5, Technology 2, Tech X, Technology Zero, or The Ludovico Technique.

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 2 Technology 2 which fires a continuous beam, and Tech.5 Tech.5 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]

  • Afterbirth† Indicator.png Apple! Apple! / Afterbirth† Indicator.png Euthanasia Euthanasia / Tough Love Tough Love : 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.
  • Brimstone Brimstone : Overrides Technology.
    • DLC Indicator.png The Technology laser coils around the Brimstone beam, granting a 1.5x damage multiplier.
  • Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk : Increases fire rate by adjusting tear delay down, allowing going below the normal minimum.
  • DLC Indicator.png Epic Fetus Epic Fetus : Fires lasers in all directions upon impact of a missile.
  • Fire Mind Fire Mind : Laser lights enemies on fire but loses ability to explode enemies.
  • The Inner Eye The Inner Eye : Isaac shoots 3 lasers with decreased rate of fire.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique : The laser becomes a large ring that is controllable and looks like a DLC Indicator.png Tech X Tech X shot. Enemies inside the ring without touching it are not hurt. Shot speed is ignored. The Tears stat is ignored and damage is dealt very rapidly at a rate equivalent to 2 tear delay.
  • Mom's Eye Mom's Eye : Fires a laser from the back of Isaac's head as well as the front.
  • DLC Indicator.png Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung : Several additional lasers fire in random directions. (One beam will always fire straight forward as normal.)
  • Mutant Spider Mutant Spider : Isaac shoots 4 lasers with decreased rate of fire.
  • Polyphemus Polyphemus : Greatly increases damage while decreasing rate of fire.
  • Proptosis Proptosis : Doubles damage.
    • DLC Indicator.png Doubles damage but it rapidly decreases with distance, down to 0.1 from about 6 tiles away.
  • Soy Milk Soy Milk : 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.
  • DLC Indicator.png Tech X Tech X : Both fire at the same time.
  • Technology 2 Technology 2 : Both fire at the same time.
  • Tiny Planet Tiny Planet : Laser circles around Isaac and then continues its path forward in a straight line. The laser is also spectral.
    • DLC Indicator.pngTiny Planet Tiny Planet + A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal : The extra distance covered by the laser more than doubles damage right in front of Isaac, and it increases as normal further away.

    • DLC Indicator.png Both fire normally.
    • Mom's Knife Mom's Knife + The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique : 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.
