Recently I have played a game called Deus Ex: Human Revolutions. After finishing that game I couldn’t stop my self from wondering, what if this actually happened. To give a quick summary about the game’s story; it is about some organization that does some human cybernetic enhancement that can enhance the limitations of the human body. That’s not the actual story of the game but this is the science part in the story.
The question here stands. Can this really happen? I mean, if someone can’t carry something heavy; Can he remove his arm, and instead install a mechanical arm that gives him more power and strength? Can a man remove his eyes with an electric one that can grant him night vision? Can he plant things into his body, that can delay his death? Can we plant an electronic memory in order to help those who have bad memory?
I can keep asking many questions… but the thing is, if such technology appeared… will we use it for good? or we will just be using this technology to enhance soldiers and make them stronger.
Here is a question for you… If such technology exits and you can do such surgery on your body… will you do it? if so, what will you do after the surgery?
