Video: How can technology help the human race upgrade?
Professor Kevin Warwick of The University of Reading's Cybernetics department used to be a cyborg. He's had an RFID chip implanted in his arm and, more recently, an implant in his nervous system enabling him to control a robotic hand with his brain.
Does the human race need to upgrade itself with technology and implants? Warwick believes it does. In this video interview the professor explains how and why he put his nervous system online, and discusses other experiments he's conducted - using cells taken from rat brains to power the decisions of robot bodies.
