I admit to expressing disgust at the excited Kevin Warwick ‘Captain Cyborg’ (British scientist and professor of cybernetics at the University of Reading) implanting a chip under his skin then calling himself a cyborg on BBC’s ‘Tomorrows World’ in the Late ‘1990’s. That said I understood that he could open a door, switch on lights, with a thought, but he demonstrated little else.
