Electric Human Cyborg Simulacra – Prototype I

Cyborg Development

Cyberpunk science fiction synthetic biology and neural implants create a human cyborg machine

A blend of synthetic biology and neural implant technology – artist unknown, please advise and I’ll credit

Part of a series of images from the liquid metal, carbo-plastic, hydrogel and permacrete core of visual creators on the Internet.  Images that stir my senses and evoke plots and concepts for what I’d like to see (or fear) in the future.

Clunky, ugly, and as about as mobile as Dextrous Robotics Lab, Robonaut 2 (R2) currently aboard the ISS, but a superbly potent image. Great use of shadow and I love the almost Frankenstein aspect of the technology.  It’s cogs and thick electrical wires and transistors and capacitors, but it’s also flesh, or a hybrid version of flesh, a thing grown out of synthetic biology and fused with the hardware to give it thought and the power of sense. Sadly I’ve been unable to find out who the artist is. Happy to credit if somebody can let me know (use comment box below).  As cloning technology evolves through recent advances with human stem-cell research – and creation – I wonder how long it’s going to be before scientists of this current day and age will be looking at  – and talking to – such freakish fusions of meat and machinery.

EDGE { novel } Ethan Carmichael, technical wizard and prolific inventor is close to burn out. Taking time out at a luxury snowboarding resort in New Zealand seems like the perfect opportunity to refresh his mind and spirit. But the mountain is a gateway to something much older than humankind, a malign and alien force that even now is oozing back into our reality, hungry for flesh and fear. On the other side of the world, Halo Santana, an unscrupulous concept scout scrambles onto the trail of a new technology that has vanished from a corporate R&D lab. Quickly out of his depth, he enters a frantic race to track down the missing components to save his life. Both men find their fates tangled in a deadly web of lies, treachery and a cosmic horror that comes from beyond the stars. David J Rodger delivers relentless narrative pace in a tense action-packed novel.
