Magnet Implants II: Building a Better Magnetar

Magnet Implants II: Building a Better Magnetar

When I first became interested in magnet implants, I devised a method to overcome the limitations of Parylene consisting of a durable biosafe resin coating. I still have one of these implants as of the writing of this article but the added resin material is approximately 1mm thick.

A CRISPR in your Future

Last year, they figured out how to insert and delete genes. This year there are methods for repressing and perhaps promoting genes (epigenetically, without modifying the genome) using CRISPR-derived technology.

The Sensorium: A Multimodal Neurofeedback Environment

The Sensorium: A Multimodal Neurofeedback Environment

The Sensorium is a neurofeedback environment that allows people to experience signals from their non-perceptible body processes visually and auditorily. Various (neuro-)physiological rhythms and frequencies are projected simultaneously as soundscapes and “lightscapes” into the environment. A wireless physiological amplifier device sends signals such as EEG and ECG to a computer for real-time proce...

What physical or mental enhancements are possible through gene therapy ?

Advances in genetics now permit to edit one's genome relatively easily. Gene therapy is now used exclusively to fix diseases, but could soon be used by transhumanists for genetic enhancement, such as augmenting one's mental faculties or improving one's physical appearance. What exactly can we modify and what are the risks involved ?
