Singularity or Transhumanism: What Word Should We Use to Discuss the Future?

Singularity or Transhumanism: What Word Should We Use to Discuss the Future? | Design to Humanise | Scoop.it
Singularity. Posthuman. Techno-Optimism, Cyborgism. Humanity+. Immortalist. Machine intelligence. Biohacker. Robotopia. Life extension. Transhumanism. These are all terms thrown around trying to describe a future in which mind uploading, indefinite lifespans, artificial intelligence, and bionic augmentation may (and I think will) help us to become far more than just human.

Bionic Yourself

Bionic Yourself | Design to Humanise | Scoop.it
Project Bionic Yourself (B10N1C) is a small implant for your arm that makes you a bionic-superhero. The idea comes from utilizing technology to give you a super ability such as wireless control devices by moving a single finger, sense electromagnetic fields, and even scan RFID keys while all being stored inside your body. While these are a few examples, the possibilities range much further. It's also a user-integrated hacker tool that has the opportunity to change life as we know it.

The goal of the B10N1C is to explore the application of a small, safe, robust implant that communicates with the outside world through technology and the various user interfaces found in one’s day to day life.

The proposed project hinges on the idea of becoming bionically similar to Robocop. Using my knowledge of implantable materials (silicone, polyurethane, etc), I hope to upgrade my body to communicate with the tech-friendly culture that we live in today.
