These are the algorithms that talk with us, that watch us, that trade for us, that select dates for us, that suggest what we might buy, sell, or wear. They are the algorithms that pool information about us, and that will slowly permeate the full range of human-built environments, from bridges to roads to cities … Continue reading We are merging with robots. That’s a good thing.
Much of the apparel on offer now seems aimed at simply connecting clothing-based sensors to the wearer’s phone. Beyond giving new meaning to the phrase “smartly dressed,” these connected threads seem largely aimed at allowing us to avoid touching our other smart devices by letting us double-tap our cuffs or collars to perform certain digital functions. But … Continue reading Where are our useful futuristic clothes already?
Fashion expert Kristina Dimitrova demonstrates how our clothing will become the interface, and we will be the UI. Fashion has a fundamental role in the adoption of emerging technologies and as the two continue to merge we will see how subtle and stylish augmentation technology can be. And ultimately, we may discover how textiles make … Continue reading Fashion and technology is colliding to give you new abilities
Neil Harbisson no longer makes music in the traditional sense, however – now he’s just the vessel through which it travels. “It’s not that I create music; my reality has become my music,” he explains. “The art came when I created of the organ, in a sense. It transformed my reality into music, so I … Continue reading The man-machine: how bio-hacking can change the future of music
For Generation Anxious, affixed to its phones and stricken by news alerts, overworked and under-rested, the mysterious substance known as CBD is quickly becoming the new “it” drug.

The big question being posed: do we all have the right to enhance our bodies as technology and … Continue reading Science debate: Should we embrace an enhanced future?
The old story of AI is about human brains working against silicon brains. The new story of IA will be about human brains working with silicon brains. As it turns out, most of the world is the opposite of a chess game: Non-zero-sum — both players can win.
Ultrasound runs on piezoelectricity. Applying voltage to a piezoelectric crystal makes it vibrate, sending out a sound wave. When the echo that bounces back is converted into electrical signals, you get an image of, say, a fetus, or a submarine. But in the last few years, the lo-fi tech has reinvented itself in some weird … Continue reading The second coming of ultrasound
In the average lifetime, your heart beats 2.5 billion times, moving about five and a half quarts (5.5 liters) of blood at 3-4 mph (4.8-6.4 kph). This is about the walking speed of the average person. Harnessing such energy could offer significant capabilities. These researchers have passed a milestone. This is the world’s first attempt to use … Continue reading Scientists Built a Power Generator for Use Inside the Human Body
Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture called Neuralink. The company is centered on creating devices that can be implanted in the human brain, with the eventual purpose of helping human beings merge with software and keep pace with advancements in artificial intelligence. These enhancements could improve memory or allow for more direct interfacing with … Continue reading Neuralink, a venture to merge the human brain with AI
