Bio organic flesh apps have been appearing in many fringe interstellar areas. They have become something of a fad among cultists of the Outer Gods and worse. The implant/apps have been outlawed on many human worlds and the penalty for their ownership is death or life sentence in a pain box. This has not stopped many from taking advantage of this forbidden technology. Many bio organic flesh implants fetch several thousand credits when they come on the open market. There are many harmless knockoffs making the rounds.
