The future definitely has a lot of plans for the human body, whether it’s replacing it for robotic limbs or transforming it into a virtual avatar. It only comes to show just how tiresome the biological substrate of our bodies have become. Soon we’ll be replacing our meat-bag of a body for more efficient analogs. Either way, prepare yourselves to redefine what it means to be human. Welcome to the future!
In The Future This Week, Serious Wonder suits up and jacks into the virtual world in search of this week’s headlines of the future, from mind-controlled robotic arms to full-body virtual reality suits. This week we find ourselves pushing the limits of future mind-controlled technologies, starting with the arms and ending with the legs. Though don’t plan on using those robotic limbs to drive a car, because Uber’s robotic cars are prepared to drive you instead.
