  • cyborgblog: Marvel Comics made me who I am
    the pictures As important as the drawings were reading Marvel Comics really was an exercise in reading The company had a distinctive lingo all its own and each issue was packed with terms such as stasis and matrix and mutant If my vocabulary is larger than that of the average person you can blame Marvel What I am realizing quite belatedly is that Marvel and DC Comics are worth investigating in terms of their images of human machine interaction Brown notes that One of the coolest characters Marvel offered readers in the Me Decade was Deathlok the cyborg assassin As cool as he was however Deathlok still did not want to be a superhero After dispatching one victim in Astonishing Tales No 25 we learn that the dying man actually feels sorry for Deathlok Your voice you re not human you re a robot an android a cyborg with no feelings no remorse just an inhuman machine I pity you Here s Deathlok There s a whole book in examining these figures Only problem is you d need a good source of funding This comic is currently available for 45 US There s also Cyborg from Teen Titans and many more Spiderman would be by some definitions a cyborg as well posted by Allison Muri at 8 48 AM 0 Comments Post a Comment Home Headlesschicken Allison Muri University of Saskatchewan Previous Posts Korean Scientists Develop Female Android The Depths of Badness Cybernator 1991 Shoeveillance The Blueprint for a Post Darwinian Transition to a Village Voice article on Sousveillance Worth 1000 Borgged Art Nano machine switches between biological and silic DARPA s 55M Wireless Bionic Arm Bionic leg articicial muscles urinary bladder pr Solar powered implant could restore vision www cyborgblog Other Cyborg Info Wikipedia Cyborg entry Futures Wiki on

  • cyborgblog: Korean Scientists Develop Female Android
    first one This is the android dubbed Repliee Q1 that was a exhibited by Japanese researchers in 2005 Then again you gotta wonder if maybe the guy standing there beside her posing so convincingly in a thoughtful ponder is the actual android of interest This video from YouTube seems to corroborate such a speculation The robot is getting close to the human says Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro How do we develop more human like behaviours for the android and where do we become aware that it is not a human And finally does a human unconsciously recognize a human So we are studying what is a human by using this android robot Now this would be an interesting study we expect the android on display to be a gynoid what if the real study is to see whether we detect that the Professor is an android A good novel can come of this maybe I ll write it But back to the gynoids Here s a video of Repliee Q1 from YouTube Here is a beautiful video from YouTube of a female automaton by Jaquet Droz I wonder if the nail polish was on the original 18th century construction or if it was added later Here s a clip on YouTube of the famous Maria from Fritz Lang s Metropolis Pygmalion and Galatea Jean Leon Gerome 1824 1904 posted by Allison Muri at 7 48 AM 0 Comments Post a Comment Home Headlesschicken Allison Muri University of Saskatchewan Previous Posts The Depths of Badness Cybernator 1991 Shoeveillance The Blueprint for a Post Darwinian Transition to a Village Voice article on Sousveillance Worth 1000 Borgged Art Nano machine switches between biological and silic DARPA s 55M Wireless Bionic Arm Bionic leg articicial muscles urinary bladder pr Solar powered implant could restore vision
