eye bling

There's a new magazine devoted to transhumanism. Seriously.

Read it to learn about eyeball jewelery, digital tattoo interfaces, and that pioneering self-transformer, Michael Jackson. Plus some serious essays. You know you want to.

Did I mention eyeball bling?

  1. If I see anyone with eyeball bling, I’m leaving the country!

  2. Who gives a shit about eyeball bling? I want my neural implants!

  3. well so long as they actually don’t make humans faster, stronger, or smarter i will simply write these people off as nothing more then tattoo fetishists.

    Contact lenses are epicly more transhuman then pierced dicks and eyeballs ever will be.

  4. Heh… I can think of some creative places for the skin cellphone.

  5. Joshua Corning,

    Agreed.
    Except when they are just cosmetic.

    One of these guys had magnets implanted under his finger tips to give him a way to “sense” magnetically (really just augmented tactile functioning, but I wonder how the brain would learn to integrate the additional information).

    His experiment failed due to a severe infection, but the idea was interesting, I thought.

  6. I want my neural implants!

    Screw that I want nano red blood cells which allow me to stay 2 hours under water and run a mile on only one breath of air.

  7. With a brief browse, the cellphone tattoo seems the most likely to take off first. Although the EEG game controller has promise. Similar systems have been demonstrated to work with paralysis patients.

  8. I want my neural implants!

    Here here! Bring on The Jack!

  9. Is it ironic that a transhuman mag is doing honest to god paper distribution in this wireless age, or has Alanis Morissette corrupted my brain?

  10. Is it ironic that a transhuman mag is doing honest to god paper distribution in this wireless age, or has Alanis Morissette corrupted my brain?

    The latter – it’s a PDF file, I don’t think there are any dead trees involved.

  11. Screw that I want nano red blood cells which allow me to stay 2 hours under water and run a mile on only one breath of air.

    I’d rather have a direct net hookup and interface with my brain a la Accelerando.

    And, Warren, I welcome the Jack too, though I think that would be a neural impairment.

  12. I wonder how our obsession with race will change when we can get patch that changes our skin color.

    Expect junior high schools to switch from Nigerian Brown to Swedish Pale then to Thai Beige on a weekly basis.

  13. How long before wireheads* are criminals?

    *known space version

  14. What, did Ron Bailey loose his gig?? Since when did KMW become the transhumanist blogger ’round these parts. Does Joe the Plumber approve?

  15. I want my goddamn skullgun already.

  16. When Post-Darwin Hedonic Engineering is outlawed, only outlaws will be Post-Darwin Hedonically Engineered

  17. And I, for one, am completely with Mrs. Ron (Tater-salad) White: Let’s find the genetic marker that makes semen taste like chololate.

  18. Isn’t eye bling painful? Isn’t that why the bukkake ladies wear shades?

  19. I’m waiting for the laser beam eyes and the D-cups of justice.

  20. “How will our obsession with race change when we have patches that can change skin color?”
    They will be banned after they are used in affirmative action fraud. Duh.

  21. With many new announcement about the wizard of oz movies in the news, you might want to consider starting to obtain Wizard of Oz book series either as collectible or investment at RareOzBooks.com.
