"Becoming One with the Computer"

In lab today we discussed the modern technologies, including incorporating machines and computers into the human body. We also discussed when the definiton of a human changes as these technologies are used. "Research still needs to be done but, it is also possible to cure memory problems and Alzheimer's disease," (Naam 2006). These types of technologies also have great potential, but could be used to control people if it falls into the wrong hands. I believe that as long as these technologies are used to help people with disabilities that they are perfectly fine. There has been a study at South Hampton University where they are further developing a computer that allows people to speak through their thoughts.
