Van Mensvoort
October 3rd 2010

According to this fictitious future medical bill almost every part of the human body will be repairable in 2028. Gut bacteria replacement, Bone tissue growth for skull repair, Airlift, Cryogenic brain protection.. the list is lustrous. Yet, the scenario also wittingly shows how technological progress may have a price of technological dependence: The emancipation from bodily constraints is traded for a social-psychological dependence. The things we design end up designing us.

Zoom in on the full image for the creepy details. Via Wired. Todd Tankersley was the photographer. Aaron Rowe was the writer. Thanks Stephan.
