“I just want to see how far I can push the human.”
The Verge has just posted a very fun little documentary on “Grindhouse Wetwares” and other groups working on functional implants and “scrapheap transhumanism” (love that term), as well as some great coverage of magnetic implants and things like that. It’s a bit over ten minutes long and lots of fun. Set some time aside and check it out. I have to be honest that I am not terribly impressed by what has been done so far, but these are baby steps being taken, and I hope that even if it falls far short, I’d like to think it will inspire people to go further and do it better.
