The AMPed Super Humans [Science]
posted July 3 2012 16:19.07 by Giorgos Lazaridis

When you think of super humans, you probably think of superman, or batman, or spiderman or hulkman... But PhD in Robotics and NYTimes best selling author Daniel H. Wilson had another idea which he discusses in this episode of Epipheo. Daniel put his idea in black and white and wrote a novel about the AMPed people.

It is technology of today to use body implants, such as prosthetic legs, pacemakers, optical lenses and even brain chip implants. So we're probably not far to meet people with brain implants that will help them stay focused. Being focused (as we all know from Karate Kid) is very important to achieve the best results from what we do, whether this thinking, reading, driving or doing sports. So these people will be in a sense "super-humans"

This invention will come along with moral and other ethic concerns. How ethic will it be to implant this chip to a baby? Or implant chips to football players? And what if a whole nation implants those chips? What will happen then? The world will fill up with PHds?

Watch the following short video...
