Must Watch: Cyberpunk Short Film About An Addictive Drug Called Mech

It's well worth checking out this five-minute short film, Mech: Human Trials. Not only has it been picked up to become a full-length movie (something there's plenty of scope for), but it's also packing enough excitement and cool ideas into five minutes to keep you rewatching and rewinding. » 6/04/14 5:30pm 6/04/14 5:30pm

The Most Insane Moments from Robocop: The TV Series

Robocop has fought crime in four movies and a slew of comic books — but meanwhile, he's also had a pretty wild ride on television. The cyborg lawman starred in a "family friendly" 1990s TV show and a 2001 miniseries, which pushed him to places the movies never contemplated. Here are Robocop's craziest moments on TV. » 2/13/14 12:00pm 2/13/14 12:00pm

This cyborg mystery novel is what Intelligence could have been

One of the reasons Intelligence has fizzled is that it took a solid premise—a government agent with a chip in brain—and failed to do anything interesting with it. K.B. Spangler's novel Digital Divide, on the other hand, takes the idea of cyborg agents and runs with it in a tale of murder and anti-cyborg prejudice. » 2/06/14 12:20pm 2/06/14 12:20pm

This cybernetic hand is the first to give amputees a sense of touch

You're looking at LifeHand2, a prosthetic limb that allows amputees to feel sensory-rich information in real time.

The first person in the world to become a government-recognized cyborg

Neil Harbisson is the first person on the planet to have a passport photo that shows his cyborg nature — in his UK passport, he's wearing a head-mounted device called an eyeborg.

California Woman Gets Charged for Wearing Google Glass While Driving

Well, it was bound to happen. A Google Glass-wearer was ticketed in San Diego last night for "driving with a monitor visible" — the same law that prevents people from watching TV in their cars. But there are exceptions for GPS and satellite radio devices, so we can't help but wonder if the cop did the right thing. » 10/30/13 9:40am 10/30/13 9:40am

How Close Are We to Building a Full-Fledged Cyborg?

The dream of the cyborg is coming true at an exhilarating rate. As humans gets better and better at making machines, we keep attaching those machines to our bodies to make ourselves better humans. It seems at times that the only question left is if we can put a human brain in a robotic frame. Actually, it's not a… » 10/22/13 5:53pm 10/22/13 5:53pm
