The lines between human and machine continue to blur, perhaps at a faster rate than during any time in the evolution of Homo sapiens. While technological developments make androids and algorithms more humanlike, they’re also bringing more artificial parts into humans.
Here’s an intimate look at some recent developments.
What do you notice about someone close to you?
F.A.C.E. is an expressive android, used as”an emotion conveying system” with a perfect smile.
Not everyone can return your gaze (if you’re able-sighted), but that might change in the near future with the help of bionic eyes.
The feel of their skin?
Soft, robotic skin developed by Georgia Tech gives “a sense of touch that is at least somewhat analogous to” what healthy human skin feels. (There are those who might still prefer bioprinted skin for replacements.)
Is it the reassuring sound of their heart?
What about their mind?
We are going to be embracing a future when the game of “Would You Still Love Me If” steps up to another level, don’t you think?
