Panopticon?

I'm trying to run a Wirehead eidolon in 2nd Edition, and it says its ware is mnemonics and a "Panopticon." Anyone have any idea what a panopticon is? It's not mentioned anywhere in the new or old edition that I can find.

It's an upgrade for infomorphs in Transhuman which allows them to split their attention across more points of view without taking penalties. 3 IIRC, but it goes up by two for each multi-tasker you have installed (so probably only with a hab-brain to run on).

It's good for piloting several drones at the same time.

The details are also

The details are also available on the wiki.

Are you planning to allow the Wirehead to use its Vigor pool? The rules indicate that while jamming a drone, you use the drone's Vigor pool instead, but that would make the Wirehead eidolon a bit pointless.

I am guessing, that there will be a clarification to the Vigor pool stipulation, that Infomorphs use the best pool. I could be wrong here, but that makes sense to me. Why would an infomorph have Vigor otherwise?
