Pop culture assures us that cyborgs are inevitable but how might this cyborgian future begin? Will it be military tech that filters to public use like the internet, radar, or duct tape did? Will it be robotics tech that becomes medically effective such as motorized limb & joint prosthetics or eyeball cameras? Or will it be DIY grinders who build tech in their home workshops and jam it into their bodies just to see what happens? Would it surprise you to know that all 3 scenarios are happening all over the world today? What might the UX future look like when people have chip implants, video cam eyeballs, or neural antennae? What policies or regulations should be put in place before we all merge into the Borg?
