I Future Cyborg

September - 2014

Generation Cyborg is coming.

People who grow up with some type of electronic device inside them virtually their entire lives.

The concept of a human-machine hybrid has been a staple of Sci-Fi for generations.

For example a sub-dermal RFID would be an permanently embedded but not have a direct iteration with the body. I'm leaning toward yes, because the RFID would provide automated, electronic interactions with the environment.

The specific enhancements I get are too be determined. It's unlikely they'll include

For purposes of this piece, I'm defining

Generation Cyborg.
