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 which fires a continuous beam, and 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]

  • Brimstone: Overrides Technology.
    • DLC Indicator.png The Technology laser coils around the Brimstone beam, granting a 1.5x damage multiplier.
  • Chocolate Milk: Moderate Tears Up.
  • DLC Indicator.png Epic Fetus: Fires lasers in all directions upon impact of a missile.
  • Fire Mind: Laser lights enemies on fire but loses ability to explode enemies.
  • The Inner Eye: Isaac shoots 3 lasers with decreased rate of fire.
  • The Ludovico Technique: The laser becomes a large ring that is controllable and looks like a 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: Fires a laser from the back of Isaac's head as well as the front.
  • DLC Indicator.png Monstro's Lung: Several additional lasers fire in random directions. (One beam will always fire straight forward as normal.)
  • Mutant Spider: Isaac shoots 4 lasers with decreased rate of fire.
  • Polyphemus: Greatly increases damage while decreasing rate of fire.
  • Proptosis: Doubles damage.
    • DLC Indicator.png Doubles damage but damage rapidly decreases with distance.
  • 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.
  • Technology 2: Both fire at the same time.
  • DLC Indicator.png Tech X: Both fire at the same time.
  • Tiny Planet: Laser circles around Isaac and then continues its path forward in a straight line. The laser is also spectral.
