Beyond Human: The Cyborg Revolution

This documentary presents advances in robotic technology and trends towards the merging of man and computer. Will the robots terminate humans or outlive us as our descendants?

    I (we) as consumers have been at the intersection of liberal art and technology. I’d like to think I will be able to witness the intersection of biology and technology (if not benefit from it)…that it will happen in this lifetime.

    Interesting that you just saw this now. I was about to post a more recent and mainstream documentary about this subject where they all the experts agree and pretty much predicted that humans will merge machines. They say we have to or we will not survive. It’s odd to hear about from such in inevitable point of view. Hopefully I’ll have some time tonight to post it…

    I am just catching up on lots of goodies on Shapeshift.net. :) Look forward to watching the documentary you have just posted. I am never a die-hard fan of Sci-Fi but lately because of this man/machine prediction I am finding myself quite intrigued — even watched ‘Prometheus’ on the weekend. :)
