Bionics, or Body Hacking
Human performance augmentation (bionics) was one of the themes at the TED conference last week. I recently listened to a podcast of Tim O'Reilly's eTech2008 keynote speech. He mentioned Quinn Norton and her I Sing the Body Electric talk about body hacking. Brain augmentation is going to be significant over the next few years. Combining these two with ambient computing is a path to the singularity.
