“in 1998, kevin warwick, a professor of cybernetics at reading university, became the world’s first cyborg. well, to be exact, he had a radio frequency id implanted in his arm.”
it’s a short video, about 10 minutes, but my mind is already swimming in the future. and i’m jealous. sure i knew i’d never be the first cyborg but i want to be one now. he gives a really nice explanation of the singularity and what the world might be like in the not too distant future. he describes one part of his research as profound, and i’d have to agree. his ideas about the future of communication, based on his research are fascinating. i’m going to be thinking about this for a while i can tell.
watch it, enjoy it.
