Science fiction is no longer fiction. From pacemakers to artificial retinas, implantable machines will soon be used by a majority of humans not only to preserve life, but to augment it. Augmentation of the human body will become an everyday norm - not just for pro athletes or billionaires, but for the average Joe. Video games such as Deus-Ex have explored this futuristic universe, but many of these technologies are available now. Will Rosellini, an academic neuroscientist, will cover the past decade of innovation in medical science, from artificial limbs to protein strains that can be combined with human rNA, injected into the body, and activated with a laser. By 2027, the rapid advancement of medtech will produce a nation of Cyborgs: each one of us.
