    2. 2. Contents Introduction  History  Definition  Cyborg  Classification of cyborgs  Applications  Advantages  Dis-advantages  Conclusion 
    3. 3. Introduction A cyborg, short for "cybernetic organism", is a being with both organic and artificial parts. 
    4. 4. Intro…. A person whose physiological functioning is enhanced by mechanical or electronic devices. Ex: A human fitted with a heart pacemaker or an Insulin pump(diabetes) considered as cyborg. 
    5. 5. History The term cyborg was coined by Manfred E. Clynes and Nathan S. Kline in 1960 to refer to their conception of an enhanced human being who could survive in extraterrestrial environments. o In 2010, the Cyborg Foundation became the world’s first international organization dedicated to help humans become cyborgs. o In 1908, jean de la Hire introduced in the novel L’Homme ui Peut Vivre Dans L’eau ( The Man who Can Live in the Water). o
    6. 6. Cyborg A cyborg is a being with both biological and artificial parts.  A person whose physiological functioning is aided by or dependent upon a mechanical or electronic device. A living being whose powers are 
    7. 7. Robots A robot, however, doesn’t necessarily have to resemble a human. It can be in any shape.
    8. 8. Classification of cyborgs Cyborgs are categorized into two type based on their structural and functional role play. • 1. 2. Convenient cyborg-The former Convenient cyborgs may refer to any external provision of an exoskeleton for the satisfying the altered fancy needs of body. Conditional cyborg- This includes bionic implants replanting the lost or damaged body part for the normal living in the present environment.
    9. 9. Cyborg in society In medicine For centuries, man has depended on technology, understanding human physiology and medicine to “construct tools to replace or augment natural physiologic functions”. Many of these technologies were created to restore abilities that were lost to injury, disease, and age.
    10. 10. In Military Whether soldiers use guns and tanks to complete missions, or they receive missions through satellite communication, they are part of a cyborg network.
    11. 11. In Sports Blood doping is the practice of boosting the number of red blood cells in the bloodstream in order to enhance athletic performance.
    12. 12. Some Example of Real Life Human Cyborgs 1. Neil Harbisson was born with extreme colorblindness that meant he could only see in black-and-white, he is now capable of experiencing colors. Harbisson is equipped with a specialized electronic eye, or eyeborg, which renders perceived colors as sounds on the musical scale. In other words, his device allows him to “hear” color.
    13. 13. 2. Kevin Warwick A professor of cybernetics Warwick has been experimenting with various electronic implants since 1998, when he "installed" a microchip in his arm that allowed him to operate doors, lights, heaters and other computers remotely as he moved from room to room.
    14. 14. 3. Jens Naumann After a pair of horrific accidents, Jens Naumann was struck blind in both eyes 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. which translate visual information into another sense such as sound or touch.
    15. 15. Advantages Returning Function • Increased Strength • Added Functionality • Possibly longer life span • Increased Intelligence/ Computational Power/ Perception •
    16. 16. Disadvantages Possible loss of humanity  Expensive  Loss of Acceptable Appearance  Likely to Die in the Creation Procedures 
    17. 17. Future Enhancement We may have more and more artificial body parts- arms, legs, hearts, eyes and so on - till one might end up finally as a brain in a wholly artificial body.  Cyborgology will concentrates on the development of conditional cyborgs. 
    18. 18. Conclusion Humans have limited capabilities, human sense the world in a restricted way, vision being the best of the senses. Humans communicate in a very slow, serial fashion called speech. But it must get improved for the human beings to exist in this copetitive world. Obly technology can make it possible. And Cyborgology is the future techonology for the purpose to be get real. cyborgs has some major defects and wrong sides as like any technologies evolving now days. Finally I would like to say that if the future of intelligent robots, then to protect mankind, we will must need some TERMINATORs. They all are CYBORGS.
