Extreme Bionics & The Future of Human Ability
New advancements in genetics, regenerative medicine, and biomechatronics promise to transcend human limitations and end disability as we know it; from optogenetic interfaces with the human nervous system to synthetic appendages that move and feel like biological counterparts! Join us to learn how we’ll soon connect our biology with technology more seamlessly than ever before, extending and transcending human physicality, cognition, creativity and sensory abilities.
Additional Supporting Materials
- How do new advancements in biomechatronics, robotics, genetics & regenerative medicine blow the doors off the prosthetics of the past?
- In the future, will synthetic appendages “feel” and move like their biological counterparts? Will they be available to all or only the “privileged?
- How will tech help people with differing abilities transcend their natural limitations? Will they gain new, super powers? What will that look like?
