DailyDirt: Augmenting Animals

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There are a bunch of people out there who are into turning themselves into cyborgs or adding to their natural-born abilities. Some of them say they’re transhumanists, but others are just super geeks willing to experiment on themselves for fun. (Most folks are probably willing to wait a bit to make sure brain implants are actually safe.) Here are just a few projects that are working on giving lab rats some cool new upgrades.

If you’d like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

Dear Michael, I’m very upset to see you encouraging copyright infringement. I don’t think either the researchers or their rats got permission from the creators of the original thoughts to reproduce or share them online, do you? It’s disturbing to see these activities hailed as “progress.” I urge everyone to work together to halt the development of infringement-enabling thought sharing technologies. This could be even worse than the Boston strangler!!
