Do we talk about the augmented human and its limits in litterature ? Yes, we do, especially Johann, A. R. Roduit, to name an example. He is a managing director at the Institute of Biomedical Ethics and History of Medicine in Zurich.

His book, The Case for Perfection: Ethics in the Age of Human Enhancement, examines the main role that the perfection has when we talk about enhancement of humans. The author tends to show what are the ethics regarding this domain. Researchers developed more and more new technologies, which help people to be better, to be more efficient. Great works are made in fields like medicine for example.

To Johann Roduit, the debate needs to be directed by the principles of autonomy, justice and safety. If these notions are followed, so the ideals ideas to enhance human are right. Roduit describes concepts like human enhancement, ideals and perfection in his book.

In 2010 Dr. Jean-Marc Seigneur launched the first international conference about the augmented human in Megeve ski resort. The next ones took place in Tokyo, Stuttgart, Kobe and Singapore. This year, the 7th international conference, sponsored by Google, will be in Switzerland. Each year it is a success: some international media even made a first page cover about this conference.

The first two days will be composed of conferences from worldwide specialists at the Campus Biotech in Geneva.

Let's talk in details about the third day. Conference attendees will go to the Saint-Francois Longchamps ski resort (France) with buses from Geneva train station. Once there, they will be able to test augmented winter sports. On the picture attached to this article you will find some examples :

Protections : pneumatic artificial muscles
SkiMojo : exoskeleton which relieves knees
Ski helmet : augmented peripheral vision
