Technology always strives to match the incredible sophistication of the human body. Now electronics and hi-tech materials are replacing whole limbs and organs in an attempt of merging a machine with man. The use of bionics to restore motility has increased in the past decade. Nanotechnology works to improve the quality of life from within the body. In this website Bionic Limbs, Bionic Legs, Bionic Eyes, and Nanotechnology are discussed. These topics bring us to transhumanism, or the movement that is dedicated to improve the human condition.
Transhumanism is the idea of the human race fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.

We must continue to read and learn about these new advancements, for it directly affects our future. Check out the following clip before exploring the rest of the website.
The video on the left portrays many different forms of Super Human advancements and their importance in their respective fields. This clip is a good preview video before reading more in dept about Bionic Enhancement.
