+100: The First Cyborg? - Our Future in Health.

Check in: 2069

Optimizing the human body has always been one of mankind's greatest dreams. Since time immemorial, some of the most powerful drivers of development have revolved around our bodies: to be younger, stronger, more beautiful and, above all, healthier. And we are well on our way. Statistically, we are the generation that lives the healthiest and stays young the longest. But our children will top us! Today, we're talking about what we humans need to do to make that happen. Because the journey into the future of medicine leads to nanobots in the bloodstream and health chips in the body. But what happens when we want to optimize our minds after our bodies? How will our children live when the brain-computer interfaces that are already being researched today work? What tasks will humans then turn to and how will we fit into the world's operating system? Will we then be able to upload our consciousness into a computer? And will we live in it forever? Check in and experience for yourself why Emilia is excited to become a cyborg in the year 2069.
