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.

Arduino Documentary

From the Top Documentary Films site comes this half-hour story about the creation of Arduino, a kind of open-source hardware that makes building gadgets and developing inventions remarkably cheap. The Arduino board -- a microcontroller, which is a kind of simple computer used to control other machines -- has, in turn, helped kick start a larger movement to enable ordinary people to make much, and eventually, perhaps all, of the technology they use in their daily lives.
