Considering Cyborgs

Ben and I were talking yesterday about whether my SF universe should have more visible cybernetics — I admit, I’ve been imagining it with humans, genetically modified humans, and aliens, but hadn’t really thought much about cyborgs, etc. I need to figure that out more.

Conversation prompted in part by this bit of the Futures exhibit, an exoskeleton-type device that could be used by athletes to perform at a higher level, but more interestingly to me, could also be used by elderly humans and others with mobility challenges, to help them maintain activity levels.

If my hips start going in a few decades, I hope these are both affordable and widely available!
