Era of cyborgs has begun

Combining technical devices with organisms have a fascinating potential.

Recent developments in technology such as medical implants, complex interfaces between brain and machine or remotely controlled insects, that combine machines and organisms have great potentials, but also give rise to major ethical concerns. In their review entitled “Chemie der Cyborgs – zur Verknüpfung technischer Systeme mit Lebewesen” (The Chemistry of Cyborgs – Interfacing Technical Devices with Organisms), KIT scientists discuss the state of the art of research, opportunities, and risks.
