But as usual with superhero makeovers, some are less successful than others. So we’re going to put on our fashion-hats and rate what’s hot and what’s not in the DC Universe!
Don't be fooled: This is not Tony Stark's latest bionic arm. It's an incredibly detailed tattoo, one whose proud owner looks like he just stepped out of Neuromancer.
Holy cow. Now this is how you take care of your body. And this is how you live your life. And this is how you maximize your potential. Meet Sam 'Sonny' Bryant Jr. He's a 70-year-old bodybuilder who doesn't look a day over 40 and has a ridiculously ripped body that puts everyone younger than him to shame. His muscles…
Scientists at the Institute for Integrative Nanosciences in Dresden, Germany, have created "the first sperm-based biobots"—a cybernetic microorganism made of metal and a bull's sperm cell that can be remote controlled and used to impregnate an egg or deliver a drug to a target anywhere inside your body.
In the grand scheme of history our medical devices will (hopefully) seem quite primitive to people of the future. And if we make as many advances in the future as we have since the 1920s, we'll all be cybernetic demigods in no time.
We live in a world full of cyborgs, though most of us don't notice it.
Well, that answers a burning question: There is no RoboCock.
An expensive mouse, fine. A premium keyboard, alright. Tools of the trade. But when it comes to gaming peripherals that seem as much decorative as they are functional, it may be time to draw the line.
Isn't she beautiful in an eerie way? This lady sprang from the mind of Benedict Campbell, a digital artist with a flair for capturing the extraordinary potential future.
The music video for Broken Bells' "The Ghost Inside" stars Christina Hendricks as a cyborg. On a spaceship. (You know, her.) Watch. Now.
28-year-old Neil Harbisson has achromatopsia, which means he only sees in black and white. You'll notice in his photo however, that he's wearing a camera mounted to his head. This converts colors into soundwaves—making him "hear" colors.
Over 30 people are currently outfitted with ProDigits, bionic fingers that can actually grab and pick up objects in a way that previous prostheses couldn't. You've got to see these in action.
Yes, it's the RoboCop question. How much of your body would you have to replace with machines before you could no longer be considered human? Let's break it down into percentages.
Click to viewVagus Nerve Stimulation: $95,000. Deep Brain Stimulation: $40,000. Sacral Nerve Stimulation: $16,000. I don't need most of these things (or even know what they are), but I'd still love a spending spree in the Bionic Body Shop.
A Peruvian man named Requelme Abanto has a new identity—the "hardware store". That's because he recently had surgery to remove 1.5 pounds worth of 5-inch nails, rusted copper wire, scrap metal and coins from his stomach.
The UC-2000 or "Wrist Information System" was one of Seiko's attempts (circa 1984) to create a wearable, portable computer. Of course, you couldn't do much more than input around 2K of data, tell the time, and perform calculator functions.
