A Cyborg is a Cybernetic Organism, part human part machine. In 1998, when Kevin Warwick, researcher and Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, England, implanted a silicon chip transponder into his left arm and connected it to his nervous system, he became the world’s first cyborg: a man-machine hybrid. Some call Kevin Warwick a pioneer in the field of neuro-surgical implantation, others think he is a dangerous scientist who has gone crazy and wants to change mankind’s evolution by creating a superior race: the cyborgs. In this video interview he talks about ultra-sonic senses, brain-to-brain telepathic communication, the therapeutic benefits of his experiments and why he thinks he won’t be the only cyborg on this planet in the future.
