Amputation hasn't changed much since the Civil War. A new study could change that.
Human trials are on the horizon for the potentially life-changing tech.
There’s one thing about the future that we can be sure of: whatever predictions we make for it will fail miserably. Still, it’s amusing and instructive to speculate, and in that spirit we present a vision of urban life in the 80s—the 2080s, that is. Here’s a look at some of the emerging technologies that will shape the cities of seven decades hence.
As our technology has evolved, so has the way we interact with it—and nothing exemplifies this more than the dream of a seamless brain-computer interface (BCI). Forget clunky keyboards and touchscreens: BCI is all about directly uniting humanity with the tools it creates. Here’s a look at the history and methods of BCI technology.
Soon anyone who needs a prosthesis may be able to get one.
The line between the body you're born with and the one built for you could may soon become seamless.
We’ve all seen how much technology has evolved during our lifetimes—what was big became small, what was small became even smaller, and computing power accelerates at bewildering speeds. So we’ve put together this comparative infographic of technological evolution for the perusal and delectation of techno-geeks everywhere.
It uses a pressure-sensitive grid attached to vibrating motors.
Recent developments in bionic limbs have increased comfort and utility for amputees.
This device enables users with prosthetic hands to use touch screens.
