The first synthetic octopus design from the engineers at Feral Robot is a hardy shell custom-designed to make octopi uplifts feel more at home in a synthetic body with eight functioning appendages. Though it lacks ink sacs, the takko features vectored-thrust jets for microgravity propulsion.

Skinwalker: For human egos checking out the eight-armed life, takkos tend to be easier to acclimate to then octomorphs. The cyberbrain mind-states are more conducive to human mental frameworks.
Pivo: These were a big hit among neo-octopi when ﬁrst released. There’s an ongoing complaint about the lack of chemoreceptors on the arms in most models—imagine having a human biomorph with no sense of taste or smell—but the overall dexterity and design keeps us happy.
Callosum: The cyberbrains on these incorporate some of the neo-octopi neural framework in the arms, meaning that have a bit of a mind of their own, but they include better proprioception than most octomorphs too.
