Rocklin Augmentics, formerly known as Rocklin Prosthetics, is a cyberware corporation in 2045.

Background

Founded in 2004 to supply artificial limb technology to the Veteran's Administration following the Central American Wars, Rocklin Prosthetics found itself quickly outpaced by leaner, more technologically advanced cybernetic companies, such as Dynalar Technologies and Kiroshi Optics.[1] The company limped along as a small, local power until the Time of the Red when the founder's daughter took control and hit the market with a catalog of bleeding edge cyberlimbs that emphasized unique aesthetics, being reborn in 2030 as Rocklin Augmentics.[2]

Rocklin's new enhancements refuse all pretense at organic simulation with open frameworks, unusual color schemes, and "inhuman" proportions and variations. Their most famous products include the Signature Cybernetic Series, designed by popular artists.

The Time of the Red has been a boon for Rocklin. While other Corp supply chains withered, they made deals with Nomads to help them grow.[3]

Reference

  1. Cyberpunk Red Corebook p.276: "Founded in 2004 by Andrew Rocklin, Rocklin Prosthetics was a major supplier of artificial limb technology to the Veterans Administration after the Central American Police Actions. But as prosthetic devices evolved from simple medical aids to full cybernetic enhancements, Rocklin found itself eclipsed by more aggressive Cybercorps like Dynalar and Kiroshi. While the Corp eked out an existence through their old government contracts, they found their sturdy but basic products falling out of favor in the hyper-charged markets of the Cyberpunk Age."
  2. Cyberpunk Red Corebook p.276: "Then, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Rocklin was radically reborn in 2030 as Rocklin Augmentics. Now led by Andrew's daughter, Jacinda Hidalgo, the Neocorp burst onto the scene with an entirely new catalog of enhancements: bleeding edge designs that emphasized their artificial qualities and unique aesthetics. Still boasting the Rocklin reputation for reliability and strength, these new enhancements refused all pretense at organic simulation with open frameworks, bizarre color schemes, and proportions and variations that seemed brazenly inhuman. Public response was immediate and enthusiastic."
