Are We Alone – We’ve Got You Made

by Gary Niederhoff on August 25, 2010

Wish you could ditch computers? There’s no escape button for that. Computers are not only a part of your daily grind, they may soon be a part of you. We’ll hear from the world’s first cyborg about why we should make nice in our arms race with machines.

Also, the secret behind the extraordinary breakthroughs that DARPA scientists are making – from building autonomous cars to wiring robotic surgeons.

Plus, making space for humans… and their bodily functions: the engineering tricks of toiletry. And, a carbon-based astronaut on the view of Earth from orbit. Listen to individual segments here:

Part 1 – Kevin Warwick: self cybernetic.
Part 2 – Santiago Bilinkis: biology vs. technology.
Part 3 – Michael Belfiore: DARPA’s robotic experiments.
Part 4 – Mary Roach: space scatology.
Part 5 – Tom Jones: an astronaut’s view.

I also made a fan image!
