At first view, this card seems like the poor man R&D Interface. Half the cost AND it is a program, not an hardware. Those are drawback right?
But there are synergies to get with this. First, like any installable card that has a limited use, it is a prime candidate to become the target of Aesop's Pawnshop. Second, being a program, this is tutorable by Self-modifying Code and Customized Secretary.
So, is it better than The Maker's Eye or R&D Interface? Short answers : no, but it has uses. It is equivalent to The Maker's Eye in term of multiaccess. The only advantage it has over The Maker's Eye is that it can be fed to Aesop's Pawnshop (for a net 1 cred gain) and it would not be stopped by Crisium Grid (good thing). But it has less tempo than The Maker's Eye.
The art is very nice, once you notice it among the saturated colors. Nice quote also.
I just don't understand why it is 3 influences, when R&D Interface is 2.
