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.


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.

More than Meets the Eye... Robots Transforming to Vehicles

Ever wanted your car to be able to transform into a robot? Well, you're not the only one. As you can see on this video, other men have shared your dream and could not rest easy until it came to be.

Of course, the scale is a bit off, but as a proof of concept, this toy is quite impressive.

Now unfortunately, there may not be much use for this invention, aside from "robot superhero." But it is an example of the ever-increasing flexibility of our robots, progress which is apt to help revolutionize our economy long before artificial intelligence arrives.
