Design Column #8 - Beyond the Senses

We use technology to extend our influence at a distance by the use of cameras, Google Earth and drones. We also try to make technology part of our bodies as much as we can. Google has applied for a patent for a contact lens with an inbuilt photo function. A growing number of people are having chips implanted under the skin and the next step after the internet looks like being a ‘brain net’ which everyone will be plugged into. The bionic man and the cyborg are no longer futuristic concepts but present reality.
