    This is a video demonstration of OMOTE real-time face tracking and projection mapping. In this example, it's used to apply "digital makeup" to a model, then transform her into a cyborg, all in real-time. That's pretty impressive. I actually have a couple friends who it would... / Continue →

    Scientists at the Institute for Integrative Nanosciences in Dresden, Germany, have developed "robotic sperm" by trapping bull sperm in metal nanotubes then controlling the direction they swim with a magnetic field. Personally, I don't care how strong that magnetic field is, mi... / Continue →

    Remember the series of bald guys with breaking water balloon "wigs"? Well here's another series of the same thing, except with bald women. As you can see, this lady here looks suspiciously like a cyborg, so she probably short-circuited right after the picture was taken. Remi... / Continue →

    This is some bloody cyborg bodyart painted by DeviantARTist Arisusandasu (Alice Sanders) on herself. Why you'd want to turn yourself into a cyborg is beyond me, but the doctors said my IQ is equal to like a squirrel's so there's not -- OOOH, NUTS! Also, Alice did a pretty goo... / Continue →

    Come on bro, you have to admit you look creepy as f***. Please tell me you at least had a shirt on. Steve Mann, the self-proclaimed "father of computer vision systems" (and NOT "the father of a dino baby" like I want to be) was recently assaulted by three McDonalds employees ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of some brobro who decided to get a cyborg arm tattoo ON A PERFECTLY GOOD ARM. Now I just spent 10 minutes trying to scan the x-ray of my REAL cyborg arm that still has all kinds of screws and plates and pins in it but I couldn't get the scanner's top light t... / Continue →

    Because I always like to arrive fashionably late to a party (then fill my backpack with beer and sneak out the back), here's a video that was circulating last week of Quantum Dream's (Heavy Rain's developer) latest tech demo running on a PS3 in real-time. It's called 'KARA', a... / Continue →

    The day stiletto heel implants become reality is the day I'm slingshoting myself into the sun. And, knowing my luck, missing and winding up orbiting the solar system for all eternity. Remind me to pack cyanide capsules. Also: some really bright LEDs (I want children to be ab... / Continue →

    25-year old Rob Summers, formally a successful college pitcher, was left paralyzed from the waist down after a hit-and-run incident four years ago. And now, thanks to an experimental new form of therapy, has been able to take the second first steps of his life. What we've rea... / Continue →

    Reddit user captaincripple lost his leg in a motorcycle accident and has since had a custom-painted prosthetic made. This is it. It looks half-human, half-robotic, 100% something that would freak me out if I saw fall off. Im 20 years old and a bit over 12 months ago had a ... / Continue →

    Borg cupcakes: that's what these are. Now I don't know too much about the Borgs except they've always scared the everliving crap out of me (literally, ask the popcorn sweeper in theater 11 after the 4:20 showing of First Contact back in '96), but it looks like two of them have... / Continue →

    This is a piece of "art" by a really sucky artist that I can't even believe even has the gall to CONSIDER themselves an artist. The piece is for sale at the Art Basel gallery in Miami Beach. The asking price? $75,000. I'd rather eat shit! The heads are connected to servos ... / Continue →

    Want to look like you're a cyborg or some shit? I couldn't imagine why (unless you want me to brain you with a crowbar), but if you do, just glue an on/off switch to the back of your head like Dominic Wilcox did. But, WARNING: your hats won't fit the same! Neat idea, Dominic... / Continue →

    This is a series of slings that lets the rest of the world know how you went and broke your arm. And as a guy who's broken his thumb once and arm twice, I've got to admit: it's never stopped me from still doing dumb shit all the time. High-five for never learning lessons! Bu... / Continue →

    This is a video of the government's latest flying cyborg beetles in action. That's right, ACTUAL LIVE beetles being remotely controlled via implanted electrodes. Just wait till the government gets its hands on you! "We demonstrated the remote control of insects in free fli... / Continue →

    Some crazy-ass jive talking nutjob (61-year old scientist, Ray Kurzweil) is convinced we'll have the technological capabilities and biological know-how to all be loveless immortal cyborgs within 20 years time. Uh-oh. He says theoretically, at the rate our understanding is i... / Continue →

    Rob Spence has had eye problems since a shooting accident at 13. Now 36, Rob had the eye removed three years ago and decided he wants a video camera in it's place. Only problem: getting a video camera in its place. Thus far, they've built devices that create wireless NTSC si... / Continue →

    The currently conceptual 'Immaculate' prosthetic was designed by Hans Alexander Huseklepp and looks like a robot's arm. Am I running? No, but I am typing this standing up. The concept "immaculate" from Hans Alexander Huseklepp explores the idea of turning a handicap into a h... / Continue →

    Remember the story a few weeks ago of the artist woman that wanted a webcam installed in her eyeball? Well it turns out she may have been beat to the chase (and subsequent fall and eye gouging) by Steve Mann, who is *this close* to having the procedure done. Check out the Eye... / Continue →
