Exploring the Possibilities of Cyborg Technology: Angel Jafria and Johnny Matheny Lead the Way
- The video explores the potential of cyborg technology
- Angel Jafria is a cyborg who was born without part of her left arm and has been wearing a prosthetic device since childhood
- The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab is developing bionic limbs that are more advanced than Angel’s, including the Modular Prosthetic Limb (MPL) which can be upgraded and customized
- Understanding how muscles work to control robotic devices, Bobby lets Angel test drive the MPL
- Johnny Matheny has undergone a surgical procedure to map his arm directly to his body and has had nerves rewired for natural control
- Dr. Luke Osborne is enhancing the MPL with E-dermis technology, which mimics skin receptors to simulate touch.
Miracles of Exoskeletons: Medical, Industrial and Human Enhancement Benefits
- The exoskeletons developed by Exo Bionics can be used for medical purposes, industrial purposes and even to enhance humans
- The exoskeleton is powered by four Motors at the hips and knees, and a biomechanical joint coordinate between man and machine
- Jess McNair experienced multiple strokes and lost the ability to walk but with the help of physical therapist Jen Mosiovich, she was able to regain her mobility with an exoskeleton
- Zach Hawes demonstrates how his exoskeleton boosts worker productivity, giving users superhuman pressure, speed, strength and endurance
- Jason Jones is trying to bring man and machine into sync by making machines so that people can do more.
The Dawn of Wearable Technology: Augmenting Minds, Bodies, and Skills
- Wearable computers and technology are progressing to become more widespread, offering superhuman strength and endurance
- Wearable machines will augment physical selves, while wearable computers will augment minds
- Thad Starner developed a portable memory system in the early 2000s which has since been commercialized into Google Glass
- Muscle memory gloves teach skills like playing piano or typing with no practice required and help people recover from spinal cord injuries or strokes
- With complex surgeries, precision and dexterity can also be enhanced.
The Rise of Cyborg Technology: Augmented Reality Contact Lenses, Brain Implants, and Beyond
- Augmented reality contact lenses are being used to passively train surgeons’ hands during operations
- Success rates have soared above 98 percent
- Biohacker Amol Graf is experimenting with implanting computer chips into his own body, which can offer enhanced capabilities
- Resistance to cyborg technology has been diminishing
- Neil Harbison and Kevin Warwick have both had implants that provide new senses
- Dr. John Donahue implanted a device called Brain Gate into Matt Nagel to enable him to control a computer cursor directly with his mind.
Revolutionary Developments in Mind-Machine Interfacing: Breakthroughs in Brain Research
- Dr. Rajesh Rao has developed science-based telepathy
- Kathy Hutchinson was the first person to use BrainGate to control an external robotic arm and hand
- John Donoghue decoded a person’s mental intention to move their body
- Artificial intelligence can translate brain waves into physical action
- Arto Nurmico is developing tiny chips that will not only interface with the brain but connect wirelessly
- These chips are the size of a grain of salt
- The technology could be used for two way communication sending and receiving thoughts as well as for enhancement purposes, not just restorative ones
- With this technology humans can off-source mental chores like memorization which unlocks the full potential of the human brain.
Exploring the Potential of Cyborg Technology: An Interview with Rajesh
- Rajesh is working on a project to allow people to play a video game through another person using computer-assisted telepathy
- The project involves the use of EEG caps, TMS devices and magnetic radiation pulses
- Rajesh has high hopes for the potential of cyborg technology in areas such as green energy production and deciphering the mysteries of human consciousness
- However, there are ethical considerations that must be taken into account when it comes to cyborg technology such as privacy and safety issues
- In the future, there are hopes that everyone will benefit from cognitive enhancement and not just those that can afford it.
