Yep cyborg's live with us today, ye olde punk rocker Billy Idol wore some electrical leg brace for a long while that stimulates the cells with
electrical shocks to regrow badly damaged parts, he thought it was ironic that his injury occured just as he had finished his album "Cyperpunk" in
which he qoutes Gibson "through science and chemistry we are all becoming cyborgs", and then he in fact became one. That was 13 years ago.
Already there are people involved with cybernetic eye implants research, ten years ago they could see shapes and light variances.
There are similiar ear implants I believe.
The current model of prosthetic legs allows the "cripple" to run 20% faster than the fastest human, and the material its made of its pratically
The arm/hand implant is simular, the recipient must be trained not to crush everything he/she grasps, and they can of course stick their hand inside
some burning thing without noticing, if they turn off the sensors, because they've added sensors that allow a person to feel pressure and temperature
through these prosthetics!!!
Over 300 unmanned ..read robot...aircraft are flying over Iraq at any given time, some of these are armed with hellfire missiles, they also have
programming to allow them to make a decision on their own about firing on targets.
Police bomb robots are now armed with shotguns.
Just recently self replicating nano-machines have been produced, that replicate cell like feed and reproduce activity. Nano-tech will be the end of
us, there are curently no safe-guards, no laws, no restraints against their use, and already they are being introduced in cosmetics, in America with
zero information on the labeling. If we have not gotten virus or bacteria under control in our entire history, how do we expect to get mechanized
virii under control?
There are assembly lines of robots building other robots, all it takes is a rampant computer to take the humans out of the equation.
If you are under 50, I say in your lifetime, you may see a war against robots, learn to program and build your own while there is still time....or I
might just being crazy.
Humans...the majority of us, will not see super evolution, clones of ourselves, or cyborg upgrades, because most of us aren't filthy rich. Only the
most wealthy, and at first the most eccentric of the most wealthy, will be the ones involved in this tech.
The rest of us, are dinosaurs.
