Becoming a ‘Bionic Man’ Might Just Go From Ski-Fi to Reality Real Soon

Don’t you just sometimes wish you had a bionic arm that could help you lift all those heavy things at home or that could enable you to open any bottle easily?  Everyone feels like this at one point or another.  Those with disabilities even more so because a bionic arm or leg could mean the difference between being disabled and being free to do all the things that unhandicapped individuals can do.

Becoming a bionic man or woman used to be restricted to sci-fi movies and the land of dreams and desires but this dream might just become a reality much sooner than we might think.

Technology is advancing at an incredible rate and those that struggle with disabilities couldn’t be happier about it.  3D printing is revolutionizing prosthetics and is assisting in so many different ways including the medical field and sports sector.  These 3D printed prosthetics or ‘bionic arms and legs’ is already making life a lot easier and more bearable for those that face impeccable daily challenges. But now the latest findings in cybernetics, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence are taking prosthetics and medical aid to the next level.

Revolutionary feeling prosthetics is on the way

In September 2017 a 28-year-old man that was paralyzed for more than 10 ears could finally feel sensations again through a prosthetic hand after a microelectrode was implanted in his brain. Just think for a moment what this could mean for the medical field and for those that miss limbs like arms and legs.  A micro-electrode combined with a prosthetic arm or leg could enable someone to get by almost normally because sensation combined with cybernetics and artificial intelligence might just result in a complete bionic arm or leg.

Transhumanism is around the corner

Transhumanism is a term that refers to genetic engineering and human modification.  The basic idea is to combine the human body with robotics in order to overcome physical challenges and to perhaps replace organs, limbs and bypass spinal restrictions.  On Human Paragon all the latest information regarding transhumanism, genetics, cybernetics, nanotechnology and more are frequently shared. You can check out the site to find out what the latest tech is regarding transhumanism as well as some engaging articles on computer technology, cybernetics, genetics, explore the possibility of life extension and learn about the latest medical revolutions as well as advances in robotics.  Heck, even the latest findings in outer space are discussed on this superb tech site.

With these latest discoveries and advances, the movie Bicentennial Man seems more of a future prediction than a sci-fi movie.  Just imagine what it might be like to live in a world where robots can interact with almost human nature. Or consider for a moment what bionic organs, arms, legs, and limbs that function at will, could mean to our world. How much easier would life be if so many people did not have to depend on organ donations for survival? The future is indeed interesting, exciting and something brilliant to look forward to.
