According to Webster’s, a cyborg is “a person whose body contains mechanical or electrical devices and whose abilities are greater than the abilities of normal humans.” And they already exist among us. Take Steve Mann, for example. This University of Toronto professor has been wearing tech since the 1980s, most recently sporting headwear (that requires tools to remove from his head) that’s designed to capture photos and videos in real-time.
Mann got us thinking about famous cyborgs onscreen, in books and in real life. Although we may not be quite on their level yet, we could be closer than you think.
