sigh I wonder if you can get a mortgage on a bodypart?
Following Will.i.am claims on the ethical challenges of advanced bioprinting, MHOX decided to remove confidentiality on a concept the office has been working on in the last year: EYE, a 3d bioprinted sight augmentation. Latest developments in bioprinting and biohacking let us imagine that in the ...

This is when we start noticing that the world has fundamentally changed. Someday there will be a majority of people who are orders of magnitude more intelligent than the current average person.
These new people won't be limited to phenomenal mental calculations; their very nature will ensure things like stronger bones, perfect teeth, bullet-proof skin and un-rippable ligaments and tendons.
They will look at us with pity, I hope; but probably never as equals. Would we be that generous to a neaderthal that had learned to communicate? Our history with great apes that sign to communicate tells a pretty depressing tale.
Our destiny is upgrade or be left to irrelevance. Make no mistake: a people that can learn a language in a week, complete current level college degrees by age 10, never experience colds or flues and are immensely physically strong will have precious little need for the current crop of average people. What the future has in store is so different to anything before that it is the redefinition of what it means to be a human. We are a steam boat being overtaken by a satellite. I hope we can change with them.
Whether or not we go there, we need to recognize that procreation is competitive. Giving your progeny every chance to succeed is laudable. Where to stop is going to be the debatable issue. Shouldn't your child be screened for Down's Syndrome? What about dwarfism? Huntington's Disease for sure, right?
What happens when the majority say: I want my kid to have an "enhanced" body, a "superior" intellect and long life?

We the People. I'm hoping you understand the sentiment. 
The revolution itself may not be televised, but on last night's edition of the BBC's Newsnight, viewers may have witnessed the start of one.

To my colorblind friends (you know who you are). Check. This. Out.
A pair of researchers from 2AI Labs have developed a wearable eyeglass device that effectively cures red-green color blindness. Called O2Amps, the technology works by leveraging our capacity to see the amount of oxygen in another person's blood by simply looking at the hue of their skin. Developer Mark Changizi came up with the unorthodox idea after considering the evolutionary underpinnings of color vision. His unique theory eventually led to th...

"Sitting in a restaurant not far from NSA headquarters, the place where he spent nearly 40 years of his life, Binney held his thumb and forefinger close together. “We are, like, that far from a turnkey totalitarian state,” he says."

-Wired Magazine ~ In an article about NSA's new data storage center in Utah, easily capable of storing all the data generated in the world.

Am I the only one horrified? Between the NSA's abilities and the goverment's free pass; Also Known As NDAA, we have no anonymity and no redress for being watched. We aren't talking about basic information either, we're talking about a complete personality profile. This cannot be good for personal freedom.
