A Cyborg

  1. 1. GALGOTIAS COLLEGE OF ENGG &TECH Department of Electronics & Instrumentation
  2. 2. PRESENTED BY: AKASH ROLL NO:1109732008 A Seminar Presentation On CYBORG
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION  A CYBORG, short for " cybernetic organism ", is a being with both organic and mechanical parts of living creatures or human.  CYBORG is a combination between living creature and machine . It is different from robotics.  CYBORG Technology is used for repair or overcome from physical or mental desease.
  4. 4. INTRODUCTION  We can define a CYBORG using block diagram as below: LIVING CREATURE S/ HUMANS MECHATRONI CS &ROBOTICS CYBORGS
  5. 5. KEVIN WARWICK:CAPTAIN CYBORG  KEVIN WARWICK(born 9 February 1954) is a British scientist and professor of cybernetics at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom.
  6. 6. KEVIN WARWICK:CAPTAIN CYBORG  He is the most famous Cyborg because of his research.He is known for his studies on direct interfaces between computer systems and the human nervous system, and has also done research in the field of robotics.  Warwick carries out research in artificial intelligence, biomedical engineering, control systems and robotics.
  7. 7. Project Cyborg  In “Project Cyborg” Warwick implanted a computer chip in his arm with the aim of becoming a Cyborg. By means of the implant,Warwick„s nervous system was connected onto the internet in Columbia University, New York
  8. 8. Project Cyborg  A highly publicised extension to the experiment, in which a simpler array was implanted into the arm of Warwick's wife, it resulted in the first direct and purely electronic communication between the nervous systems of two humans
  9. 9. REAL LIFE HUMAN CYBORGS
  10. 10. NEIL HARBISSON  Neil Harbisson was born with extreme colorblindness that meant he could only see in black-and-white, he is now capable of experiencing colors beyond the scope of normal human perception.
  11. 11. NEIL HARBISSON  Harbisson is equipped with a specialized electronic eye, or eyeborg, which renders perceived colors as sounds on the musical scale
  12. 12. Jesse Sullivan  He effectively became one of the world's first cyborgs when he was equipped with a bionic limb, connected through a nerve-muscle graft. Not only can Sullivan control his new limb with his mind, he can also feel hot, cold, and the amount of pressure his grip is applying.
  13. 13. Jens Naumann  After a pair of horrific accidents, Jens Naumann was struck blind in both eyes. In 2002, Naumann became the first person in the world to receive an artificial vision system. His electronic eye is connected directly to his visual cortex through brain implants
  14. 14. Jerry Jalava  After losing a finger in a motorcycle accident, Jalava decided to embed a 2GB USB port into his finger.
  15. 15. Cameron Clapp  When he was 14, he collapsed and fainted along a railroad track. When the train passed, he unfortunately lost both of his legs plus an arm. He got fitted with a couple of prosthetic legs controlled by his brain with the help of a microprocessor
  16. 16. ANIMAL CYBORGS  The US-based company Backyard Brains released what they refer to as "The world's first commercially available cyborg" called the RoboRoach.
  17. 17. Application of Cyborg Technology Application of cyborg technology medicine Art Military MARINE DEAF STUDIES POPULAR CULTURE
  18. 18. ADVANTAGES OF BECOMING A CYBORG #1 Returning Function #2 Increased Strength #3 Added Functionality #4 Possibly Longer Lifespan #5 Increased Intelligence/Computational Power/Perception
  19. 19. DISADVANTAGES OF BECOMING A CYBORG #1 Possible loss of humanity #2 Expensive #3 Loss of Acceptable Appearance #4 Likely to Die in the Creation Procedures #5 You Are Now Property of a Government
