Evolution Cyborg – Is the merge of man and machine dawning!?
To improve the human body and to optimize its efficiency is a wish dating back not less than a century. Recently the fusion between Man and Machine has made advances in heretofore unexpected increments: At the smallest level, communication between the human nervous system and man made components of extraordinary technical complexity has already begun. Neuro-chips and implants interact with living nerve cells, reading and interpreting their electrical impulses. Is this the penultimate step in the symbiosis of Man and Machine into the so-called Cyborg? The documentary offers preliminary insights into the coming medical revolution, the consequences of which are far from foreseeable at present.
