Future Imperative

What if technology were being developed that could enhance your mind or body to extraordinary or even superhuman levels -- and some of these tools were already here? Wouldn't you be curious?

Actually, some are here. But human enhancement is an incredibly broad and compartmentalized field. We’re often unaware of what’s right next door. This site reviews resources and ideas from across the field and makes it easy for readers to find exactly the information they're most interested in.

Name:

The future is coming fast, and it's no longer possible to ignore how rapidly the world is changing. As the old order changes -- or more frequently crumbles altogether -- I offer a perspective on how we can transform ourselves in turn... for the better. Nothing on this site is intended as legal, financial or medical advice. Indeed, much of what I discuss amounts to possibilities rather than certainties, in an ever-changing present and an ever-uncertain future.

Who Wants a Flying Car? -- CPS, Soc, Tech

*
And from CBS News, Flying Cars Ready To Take Off , a four-page web article on the flying car prototypes floating around out there (no pun intended =) ). Apparently, thanks to NASA's Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS), we'll have the basic infrastructure and technology to accomodate such small vehicles throughout America's airspace (aside from restricted airspace, of course). Think about how much America would be changed if everyone who now drives instead had access to a reliable, easily-flown car that soared at up to 400 miles per hour.

Actually, this news spurs two thoughts in my mind. One, how many revolutionary technologies would we have emerging right now if everyone in America, the EU, Japan or elsewhere were generating new innovations all the time. What could a new, clean, cheap energy source do for us? A new way to design computers that evaded the physical limits to Moore's Law? A simple way to permanently enhance human intelligence? Etc?

And two, how awesome would it be if those inventors were also skilled at exploiting their inventions economically (or as great shareware projects) and if the government and society were effective at adapting to/adopting them. How many more "flying car revolutions" could we see? Every day?
