Cyborg Fashion | The Futures Lab | Cyborg Lives | Scoop.it

A critical aspect to this cyborg story is how they will interface, compete, relate, communicate, with and experience non-cyborgs. Especially as society moves into realms of gender-modalities (the post-sexual body), hybrids (the unruly body) or even mutations (the monster body), in times, when the balance shifts from external modulation to fully internal redesign. It raises questions of cyborg rights and identity versus human values, which will hopefully become integrated, before the next transhumanist battleground erupts.

The Roots of Biologically Inspired Robotics: Artificial Neural Net Consisting

Biorobotics more or less dead when Grey Walter went looking for others in the 1950s. With the rise of AI and computer science, the focus was on providing robots with human-inspired perception and cognition. The new robots were a series of modules, such as visual processing, planning and reasoning, through which sensory information in past series. Typically, a decision module controlled output to the actuators. This contrasts with the approach of more direct control of Grey Walter, in which the only mediator between the detection and removal has been provided by an artificial neural network hardware consists of two neurons. Another difference was that, while the AI robotics focused on human cognition, Grey Walter addressed the question of how seemingly complex behavior animallike could arise from simple mechanisms such as tropisms and reflexes. Today the term is used taxis instead of tropism to refer to the circulation of an animal led by a stimulus, either negatively or positively. Examples of activities conducted by such stimulation include chemotaxis, geotaxis, phototaxis and phonotaxis.

Our first design, the SENSOREE GER Mood Sweater now has a friend, the HelMood _ Mood Helmet for Men. This design is a branch of SENSOREEs GER – Galvanic Extimacy Responder mood sensor line.

The HelMood design is based on medieval helmets and gorgets – the leather or steel neck piece that protected the neck from swords in pre-18th century armor. This future gorget expresses emotions with light. The soft armor is embedded with mood sensors that illuminate how you are feeling into a palette of affective colors.

New energy source for future medical implants: Sugar (6/15/2012)

New energy source for future medical implants: Sugar (6/15/2012) | Cyborg Lives | Scoop.it

MIT engineers have developed a fuel cell that runs on the same sugar that powers human cells: glucose. This glucose fuel cell could be used to drive highly efficient brain implants of the future, which could help paralyzed patients move their arms and legs again.

The fuel cell, described in the June 12 edition of the journal PLoS ONE, strips electrons from glucose molecules to create a small electric current. The researchers, led by Rahul Sarpeshkar, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT, fabricated the fuel cell on a silicon chip, allowing it to be integrated with other circuits that would be needed for a brain implant.
