Google Scientists Say The Age Of The Cyborg Is Here
Technology has the potential to augment, improve and even replace every aspect of our body, from our vital organs to our legs.
A new remake of the movie RoboCop (out February 12) shows us a future where technology and humans become one – but experts say the age of the cyborg is already upon us.
With everything from smart contact lenses that could improve our vision to exoskeletons that give us superhuman strength, cyborgs are set to become a big part of our future.
Where will it end? Well, according to Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google, the biological parts of our body will be replaced with mechanical parts and this could happen as early as 2100.
He believes technology will be able to boost our brainpower, giving us true superhuman capabilities.
‘Based on conservative estimates of the amount of computation you need to functionally simulate a human brain, we’ll be able to expand the scope of our intelligence a billion-fold,’ he claims.
Kurzweil believes Moore’s Law, which states the power of computing doubles, on average, every two years, will be key, and that advances in genetic sequencing and 3D printing are already leading to the practice of improving our bodies with tech. source – Daily Mail UK

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. Going into a San Francisco second-hand book shop, shortly before a visit to Google’s headquarters in California, I happened upon a copy of Dick Tracy, an old novel…

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.
