But to my surprise, the future is now, and the whole cyborg thing is actually not scary at all, but a marvelous, wondrous leap into new frontiers right here on earth.
A cyborg, defined by Dictionary.com, is a person whose physiological functioning is aided by or dependent upon a mechanical or electronic device.
And they do exist. Take a look at this video. At first I thought (unkindly) that this was a wacky fellow, but after watching the whole video …. well, technology is allowing him to experience the world with senses that he lacks. Amazing!
I don’t know that I would want to go to this extreme, but I don’t walk in his shoes, so I don’t really know.
And this kind of technology is being tapped for all kinds of things. I came across this article about Cyborg Locusts. Scientists might be able to use them to sniff out bombs. What a world we live in!
