In the not so distant future, cybernetic implants may become common place.

It will help the disabled and elderly.

It will enhance our senses to superhuman scale. Intelligence will also be increased with the implication of these implants.

But this technology also has it's dangers. What if the implants are constructed with tracking devices that will moniter our every move?

What if they have the potential to control our minds?

What if someone could hack our implant and gather our personal information or cause the implant to do things that it would not normally do?

There are many more benefits and dangers to this technology. What is your opinion and/or how would you resolve some the problems cybernetic implants have?

Cybernetic implants is an interesting idea. To be honest I don't feel that they will be around that close in the future though. Could be handy in some ways though, for example rather than carrying around cash you could just scan your implant at the checkout and it would be a lot easier and quicker.

Detro, have you ever seen the anime show Ghost in the Shell ?? Its all about cybernetics etc... and the kinda criminal activities that could become a possible threat once we go down the path of cybernetics. But like you said the possiblities for good in the world should hopefully outweigh all the bad thoughts we have about cybernetics.
