TERMINATOR – La prothèse la plus aboutie de tous les temps

TERMINATOR – La prothèse la plus aboutie de tous les temps | technoscience | Scoop.it

L'entreprise britannique RSL Steeper vient de commercialiser Bebionic3, une prothèse myoélectrique nouvelle génération destinée aux individus ayant subi des amputations d'avant-bras et de bras. Elle se contrôle grâce à des électrodes captant les contractions musculaires qui interviennent sur la partie supérieure de l'avant-bras. Le look très "Terminator" de la prothèse peut être compensé part le port d'un gant imitant plusieurs nuances de couleur de peau.

Super Sizing the Mind - Andy Clark

When historian Charles Weiner found pages of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman's notes, he saw it as a "record" of Feynman's work. Feynman himself, however, insisted that the notes were not a record but the work itself.

Raritania: Postmodernism and Self-Censorship

Uncertainty and doubt has always been part of intellectual and cultural life -including that exceptionally large doubt as to whether anything is knowable (an issue that seems as old as philosophical speculation itself). Equally, intellectual and artistic expression has always entailed risk. There was always a premium on pleasing everybody, and offending nobody (or at least, nobody who counts).

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking | technoscience | Scoop.it

The new RSA animate video, The Power of Outrospection is quite thought provoking and has gotten me thinking about all kinds of links between empathy and creativity.In the video, philosopher Roman Krznaric explores the idea that we live in a time that demands more empathic adventurers in all aspects of life. Empathy not just so we act better towards others, but also because it helps us create better innovations, services and quality of life. I was struck by the video because I think there is something in the zeitgeist these days that highlights the importance of empathy for creating.

Raritania: Of Right and Left Transhumanism

The way we think about the possibility of transcending "the human condition" strongly reflects the way in which we think about humanity and society in general. Transhumanist thought has been no exception, evident across the political spectrum - but tending to differ in line with the thinker's other political attitudes.

Schizophrenia shouldn't be a life sentence. But it will be

Schizophrenia shouldn't be a life sentence. But it will be | technoscience | Scoop.it

They call it the Abandoned Illness, in the Schizophrenia commission's report – but not, they emphasise, because it is an illness society can afford to abandon. In fact, schizophrenia costs the health service more than cancer or heart disease. It's the most common cause of hospitalisation, and – since it won't go away on its own – will last a lifetime with the level of care patients often receive.
