Make Way for the Superhumans : How the Science of Bio Enhancement is Transforming Our World, and How We Need to Deal with it Paperback
by Michael Bess
Biomedical research is changing the both the format and the functions of human beings.
Very soon the human race will be faced with a choice: do we join in with the enhancement or not?
Make Way for the Superhumans looks at how far this technology has come and what aims and ambitions it has. From robotic implants that restore sight to the blind, to performance enhancing drugs that build muscles, improve concentration, and maintain erections, bio-enhancement has already made massive advances.
Humans have already developed the technology to transmit thoughts and actions brain-to-brain using only a computer interface. By the time our grandchildren are born, they will be presented with the option to significantly alter and redesign their bodies. Make Way for the Superhumans is the only book that poses the questions that need answering now: suggesting real, practical ways of dealing with this technology before it reaches a point where it can no longer be controlled.
