Oh, the Humanity: What Will Tech Upgrades Do to People?

To what extent are technological "upgrades" to our bodies possible, and at what point would we simply stop being human?

Is it time to assess the ethical impact of real cyborgs on modern society?

Is it time to assess the ethical impact of real cyborgs on modern society?

(Tech Xplore)—A trio of authors involved in writing about or researching robot and cyborg technology has published an editorial piece in the journal Science Robotics raising the question of whether it is time to start discussing the ethical impact of rehabilitation technology on society. In their paper, editor of Science Robotics Guang-Zhong Yang, Robert Riener with ETH Zurich and Paoplo Dario, director of the BioRobotics Institute and a professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Scuola…

Navy grants $750,000 to develop bomb-sniffing locusts

To control the locusts, scientists hope to place biocompatible silk « tattoos » on their wings that can concert light to heat, then use lasers to heat the wings to guide the locusts' paths.

Researchers Make Cyborg Beetles a Reality

Outfitted with microprocessor-equipped backpacks, scientists can control the beetle's steps via remote control

Remote-Controlled Cyborg Dragonflies Will Be Flown Like Drones.  Sensors embedded in insects' brains would allow a pilot to direct them to pollinate crops — or track enemy forces.

Scientists Hijack Bugs, Turn Them into Cyborgs

By implanting electrodes into the muscles of beetles, scientists can now precisely control how cyborg insects walk — an ability that may help these bugs carry out complicated tasks, researchers said in a new study.
