In a sense, we have already become cyborgs, tethered to our external electronic devices, outsourcing to them our memories, our sense of direction, our socialising, our lives.
Machines are as limited as humans when it comes to the kinds of sensations they can detect.
This month, the collective released North Sense, a small electronic device implanted into the skin to give the wearer a sense of direction.
The implant connects the user to Earth s magnetic field, vibrating whenever facing north.
This was not another step towards us becoming machines, but towards us becoming more human, co-founder Liviu Babitz told the Creator s Project.
This fall, the Food and Drug Administration approved the first ever artificial pancreas, a wireless, out of body device designed to free diabetics from having to constantly adjust insulin levels to keep their blood sugar stable.
