What Is It Like To Be A Cyborg?

Kevin Warvick TEDxPrague 2017

How to become a cyborg? In 1988 Kevin Warwick as a first human decided to get a chip implant in his arm. In 2002 he replaced it with a new, more complex device that was directly interfaced into his nervous system. While his nervous system was connected onto the internet in Columbia University, USA, he could fully control a robotic arm placed in the University of Reading, UK. And it perfectly copied a movement of his own hand.

Kevin later implanted the device in his wife’s arm as well to reach empathy via internet connection. By this experiment he achieved the first direct and fully electronic communication between two human nervous systems.
