10 Body Hacks That Will Be Available By 2025

10 Body Hacks That Will Be Available By 2025 | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

The next wave of the future could go beyond the technology we’re holding in our hands and extend to what’s embedded inside our hands. There is experimentation with bio-technological hacks going on today both in the lab and in an unsanctioned underground of fanatics that could result in body implant “upgrades” being as ubiquitous in 2025 as smartphones are now.
