SINGULARITY UPDATE: Meet Rex, The World’s First Bionic Man
“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15
What is being called the the “world’s first complete Bionic Man” has been unveiled ahead of its display at London’s Science Museum on Feb. 7.
Rex, short for “Robotic Exoskeleton” according to Device Magazine, stands at 6.5 feet tall and has technology that allows him to hear, speak and move. He even has artificial organs and synthetic blood. To make at least his face look more realistic, he has glass eyes and is covered in artificial skin.
NBC News has more on how and why Rex came to be:
Rex’s head is modeled after Swiss psychologist Bertolt Meyer who uses a bionic hand. Meyer presents a documentary, “How to Build a Bionic Man,” scheduled to air Thursday on the United Kingdom’s Channel 4.
“I’ve looked around for new bionic technologies, out of personal interest, for a very long time and … until five to six years ago nothing much was happening. Then suddenly we get this explosion of innovation,” he told reporters at a news briefing today at London’s Science Museum. source – The Blaze

Google’s real goal seems to be singularity The power of computing, and the thrill of its apparently infinite possibilities, has also long been a source of fear.

Scientists are constructing Roboy as a tendon-driven robot modeled on human beings (robots usually have their motors in their joints, giving them that “robot” break-dance look), so it will move almost as elegantly as a human.

The future was among the arrivals at Newark Airport on Friday, in the form of a computer-generated greeter at the gate. Travelers met “Libby.” She’s Newark Airport’s newest — and perhaps most chipper — customer service rep. You may have noticed that she’s a bit shallow, and she’s completely two-faced, but she’s always smiling, and she never complains.

Two blind men can see again for the first time in more than two decades after an implant of a 3mm ‘bionic eye’ microchip. Doctors believe in time Chris James will be able to recognise faces, once his brain learns to see again.

Google’s arsenal of real-time, mobile, location-aware services is second to none; Search, Latitude, Goggles(!), Maps, Places/Hotpot, Navigation, AdSense, Transit, Wallet, Offers, Product Search, Translate, Voice, Music — each and every one of them could be built into a pair of Android-based spectacles, and boy would the end result be awesome.

Messages and images would simply appear in front of your eyes, generated by a computerised contact lens. Of course, you may not always want to be bothered by such messages if you are doing anything so quaint as – for instance – reading a book or going out walking and enjoying the scenery.
