Many strange ideas of Hollywood movies are gradually becoming a reality, including robotics.
Cyborgs (mechanized creatures) is a concept that appeared from the 1960s of the last century and is widely used in literature and cinema. Now, it is officially present in real life and is considered the next evolutionary step of mankind.
In the future, people will gradually replace their body parts with machines. (Photo: Futurism).
In the lab, Bill, a paralyzed quadriplegic, is sitting in a wheelchair, staring intently at the screen. Two tentacle-like cables connect his skull to a nearby computer, sending information from the brain to the implant electrodes in his arms and hands. If the experiment is successful, Bill can move again.
This is the first scene in a documentary titled "I AM HUMAN" (I am a human). With modern technology, someday Bill can control mechanical parts with his brain waves. That will open a new future for humanity.
According to Futurism, the image of the Bill experiment is not very similar to the hybrids appearing in Hollywood movies, but it is the beginning of a big step forward. Today, more than 200,000 people around the world are getting digital chips implanted in the brain.
Most of these people are Parkinson's patients who have undergone deep brain stimulation surgery (DBS) in the hope of improving fluttering and other symptoms.
DBS has been used for decades, opening up opportunities for brain transplant testing for a range of conditions including obesity, addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression.

In the documentary, the new technology greatly assisted Anne, an artist with Parkinson's disease. Stephen, visually impaired, undergoing retinal surgery, saw the basic shape of the object. With the advancement of science, the technique of implanting artificial organs into the human body is developing very fast and constantly breaking the limits.
For Bill, Anna and Stephen, they risked taking part in brain interventions in hopes of regaining normal body functions. But these decisions also have great implications for the future of humanity.
What if everyone could "upgrade" their body? What aspects of man will change? Who decides all this?
However, it is certain that the scientific and moral issues will have to be resolved before humans do the work of nature on their own.
