anyway from this article and others ive read about replacing biology with synthetic alternatives Im getting an interesting view of whats to come. muscles made from carbon nanotubes would be 100 times stronger than the muscles our body uses now
I think id be cool with a 100% body replacement. Id call it an upgrade. Just give me a superconductive nervous system, a high capacity holographic superbrain, carbon nanotube muscles.
superconductors are great for magnetic levitation too
I just dont like the idea of my brain bieng able to interface with the internet. Big brother could hack in too easily. The risk of severe abnormalities and mutations on the chemical level are a concern too. oh well. shrug.
As a species we are doomed because the first thing we do is make a weapon of every new technology we ever master. wait, I take that back, We are even moreso doomed because we make weapons of technology we havent even begun to master. The margin for error that I see in this is like the grand canyon in scope. What are they thinking!?

Digital ink is another interesting concept- You could in essence tatoo a super thin layer of electronics onto your skin. Nano scale technology could allow you to have a Tatoo which is a personal computer, cell phone, MP3 player etc. Japanese researchers have worked on cellphone devices that look like a standard watch however it sends vibrations through the bones in your hand and recieves vibrations the same way so basically you talk into your finger and listen into your thumb. Combine this technology with this digital ink and you'll see what im getting at.
