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

Boston Dynamics is a cutting-edge robotics company that’s spent decades behind closed doors making robots that move in ways we’ve only seen in science fiction films.

In the early 200’s, there was a whole slew of dystopian robot movies like ‘I, Robot’, ‘The Matrix’, ‘Surrogates’, ‘A.I Artificial Intelligence’ and so many others. They were thrilling and terrifying at the same time, yet the realization of that technology was far, far into the future, right? Wrong. The vast majority of the things predicted in those movies have either already come to pass or in the process of. At Boston Dynamics, the future is yesterday.

“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 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 13:13-15 (KJB)

In the early ‘blog days’ of NTEB, we did articles on robot technology, and it was amazing the level they had got it to by 2011, 2016, but here in 2021 these robots move with human-like mobility, with refined, complex movements and gestures in a way that is most unsettling when you first see it. When you add the AI components of Virtual and Augmented Reality to that, you see very quickly where all this is headed. But don’t worry, the folks at Boston Dynamics assure us that, even though they look just like the robots in those scary movies, they could never actually revolt and take over. Whew! What a relief. So glad they said that could never happen. (rolling my eyes).

Boston Dynamics: Inside the workshop where robots of the future are being built

FROM CBS NEWS: They occasionally release videos on YouTube of their life-like machines spinning, somersaulting or sprinting, which are greeted with fascination and fear. We’ve been trying, without any luck, to get into Boston Dynamics’ workshop for years, and a few weeks ago they finally agreed to let us in. After working out strict COVID protocols, we went to Massachusetts to see how they make robots do the unimaginable.

From the outside, Boston Dynamics headquarters looks pretty normal. Inside, however. it’s anything but. If Willy Wonka made robots, his workshop might look something like this. There are robots in corridors, offices and kennels. They trot and dance and whirl and the 200-or-so human roboticists, who build and often break them, barely bat an eye.

That is Atlas, the most human-looking robot they’ve ever made.

boston-dynamics-robots-google-darpa-dystopian-future-nightmare-1984-future-shock

It’s nearly 5 feet tall, 175 pounds, and is programmed to run, leap and spin like an automated acrobat. Marc Raibert, the founder and chairman of Boston Dynamics doesn’t like to play favorites, but definitely has a soft spot for Atlas.

Marc Raibert: So here’s a little bit of a jump.

Anderson Cooper: I mean, that’s incredible. (LAUGH) 

Atlas isn’t doing all this on its own. Technician Bryan Hollingsworth is steering it with this remote control. But the robot’s software allows it to make other key decisions autonomously. 

Marc Raibert: So really the robot is

Anderson Cooper: That’s incredible–

Marc Raibert: You know, doing all its own balance, all its own control. Bryan’s just steering it, telling it what speed and direction. Its computers are– adjusting how the legs are placed and what forces it’s applying–

Marc Raibert: In order to keep it– balanced.

Atlas balances with the help of sensors, as well as a gyroscope and three on-board computers. It was definitely built to be pushed around.

Marc Raibert: Good, push it a little bit more. It’s just trying to keep its balance. Just like you will, if I push you. And you can push it in any direction, you can push it from the side. (LAUGH) 

Making machines that can stay upright on their own and move through the world with the ease of an animal or human has been an obsession of Marc Raiberts’ for 40 years.

Anderson Cooper: The space of time you’ve been working in is nothing compared to the time it’s taken for animals and humans to develop.

Marc Raibert: Some people look at me and say, “Oh, Raibert, you’ve been stuck on this problem for 40 years.” Animals are amazingly good, and people, at– at what they do. You know, we’re so agile. We’re so versatile. We really haven’t achieved what humans can do yet. But I think– I think we can.

Raibert isn’t making it easy for himself, he’s given most of his robots legs.

Anderson Cooper: Why focus on, on legs? I would think wheels would be easier.

Marc Raibert: Yeah, wheels and tracks are great if you have a prepared surface like a road or even a dirt road. But people and animals can go anywhere on earth– using their legs. And, so, that, you know, that was the inspiration.

Some of the first contraptions he built in the early 1980s bounced around on what looked like pogo sticks. They appeared in this documentary when Raibert was a pioneering professor of robotics and computer science at Carnegie Mellon. He founded Boston Dynamics in 1992, and with CEO Robert Playter has been working for decades to perfect how robots move. READ MORE

Creation Of Human And Animal Embryo Hybrids Set To Begin In Japan After Government Gives Green Light To Controversial Stem Cell Experiments

Human-animal hybrids to be developed in Japan after ban controversially lifted

Human and animal hybrids are to be developed in embryo form in Japan after the government approved controversial stem-cell research.

Remember all those crazy, nutty conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones who warned about the coming ‘pig men’ and ‘human animal chimeras’? Well, Alex Jones is a nut, and is wrong about a whole lot of things, but he was right about this one. Transhumanism is a thing, and it’s coming soon to a theater near you, only in real life and not on the screen. The ‘pig man’ from Seinfeld may well turn out to be more prophecy than comedy.

“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Genesis 11:6,7 (KJV)

God confounded the language of the people at the Tower of Babel because He did not want them discovering advanced technological feats until the time was right, but that was then and this is now. Now being the end times where man will ‘soar to new heights’ in a God-rejecting world, and will be convinced right up to the moment of the Second Coming that they were ‘smarter than the bible’. As God removes His protective hand and prepares this world for judgment, dazzling new ‘scientific advances’ like human-animal hybrids will be par for the course.

You know how you always wished your pet could talk? It’s going to do that and a whole lot more before Judgment Day. Click here to visit the NTEB Transhumanism Article Archive.

Human-animal hybrids to be developed in Japan after ban controversially lifted

FROM THE INDEPENDENT UK: Human cells will be grown in rat and mouse embryos, then brought to term in a surrogate animal, as part of experiments set to be carried out at the University of Tokyo.

Supporters say the work – led by renowned geneticist Hiromitsu Nakauchi – could be a vital first step towards eventually growing organs that can then be transplanted into people in need. But opponents have raised concerns that scientists are playing God.

They worry the human cells could stray beyond the targeted organs into other areas of the animal, effectively creating a creature that is part animal, part person. For that reason, such prolonged experimentation has been effectively banned or gone unfinanced across the world in recent years.

It Was A Hoot On Seinfeld, Not So Funny In Real Life

Seinfeld trailer #5: Kramer stumbles upon a top-secret government project involving a mutant pig man.

In Japan itself, scientists were forbidden from going beyond a 14-day growth period. But those laws were relaxed in March when the country’s education and science ministry issued new guidelines saying such creations could now be brought to term.

Now, Dr Nakauchi’s application to experiment is the first to be approved under that new framework.

“We don’t expect to create human organs immediately, but this allows us to advance our research based upon the know-how we have gained up to this point,” he told the Asahi Shimbun newspaper.

He added that he planned to proceed slowly, and will not attempt to bring any hybrid embryos to term for some years, rather growing the hybrid mouse embryos to 14.5 days, when the animal’s organs are mostly formed, and the hybrid rat embryos to 15.5 days. Such caution was welcomed by bioethicists in the country.

“It is good to proceed with caution,” said Tetsuya Ishii, science-policy researcher at Hokkaido University in Sapporo. “It will make it possible to have a dialogue with the public, which is feeling anxious and has concerns.” READ MORE

DARPA Begins Experiments To Change People’s Behavior By Implanting Microchips In Their Brains

Microchips implanted into people’s skulls are being developed by boffins funded by the US military’s research division DARPA.

Microchips implanted into people’s skulls are being developed by boffins funded by the US military’s research division DARPA.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Just a few years ago, a story like this would have lit up social media, and people would rightly be connecting human implantable microchips with the coming Mark Of The Beast during the time of Jacob’s trouble. But as technology like iPhones with facial recognition are now becoming commonplace, we are losing our fear of invasive technology and embracing it. They don’t even make credit or debit cards without the chip now, no longer optional. ‘Life on a chip’ is exactly what the Bible say coming 2,000 years ago. And oh, ‘boffins’ is British slang for someone who does scientific research

These implants will use electronic pulses to alter the chemicals in people’s brains in a process called “deep brain stimulation”. This will then change people’s moods and is believed to be able to treat mental illness and provide therapy.

Artificial intelligence in microchip implants will detect and study the brain to know what pulses to send – described by scientists as a “window on the brain”. DARPA has handed the cash to teams form the University of California and Massachusetts General Hospital.

Testing suggestions the mood implants can be used to treat disorders such as Parkinson’s. Experiments have been also carried out on people with depression – but the the results are inconclusive so far.

DARPA Implants Chips In U.S. Soldiers’ Brains

DARPA is funding the project with the long-term goal of being able treat traumatised soldiers.

The current work – which includes human testing – was presented at the Society of Neuroscience in Washington, reports Nature.

Neuroscientist Edward Chang said: “The exciting thing about these technologies is that for the first time we’re going to have a window on the brain where we know what’s happening in the brain when someone relapses.”

He added: “We’ve learned a lot about the limitations of our current technology,”

Chang also denied the technology will be able to ready people’s minds, explaining they will simply “have access to activity that encodes their feelings”. Scientists hope the new implant will allow doctors and scientists are window into people’s minds.

This will also personalized treatments for people to better treat illnesses and regulate feelings. Dementia and Alzheimer’s are also hoped to be treated using the implants. source
