I was browsing the internet and came across this story with a video.
This news story had been regarding women who had lost her eyesight in an autombile accident many years ago.
However, she has had an implant attached to her allowing her to see.
This story however got me thinking as to whether this technology could get to the point that it was advanced enough to have (in this case) better
qualities that the normal human eye and be as descreet so as to not hinder the user in any way.
If this became the case, is it possible that a new form of cosmetic surgery may develope where by individuals with no biological defects or injuries
would pay to have the use of these technological advancements?
How far would it go?
Is it not possible that all body parts could be developed?
Advancements could lead to the possibility of a physically fit or disabled person could custom design there own body?
What would be the potentially consequences of doing so?
Would it not be possible that a threat in the future could be of non physical virus's infecting these human/robot hybrids. This virus could lead to
causing control of said people to be affected to be lost.
Or would cosmetic prosthesis be out of the question to a certain level?
At what point do you change psychological?
It may get to the point that someone decides to have prosthesis surgery, notes an improvment in themselves and gains a better quality of life from the
improvments that the prosthetic limb provided. They then decide they want to improve their lives somewhat further or to aid them in some area of
employment. It would potentially become an addiction where by individuals are only identified by a concious mind within a robitic shell.
