The part in which I updated more frequently, Tumblr aside? Yeah. As machinic limbs go, I’ve been trying to get to grips with Twitter lately. Social networking in 2011—not exactly the frontiers of cyborgification. A couple of projects I’ve come across lately are however pushing this in rad ways.
Via grinding, comes Sensebridge, with its wearable sensory augmentation devices. They describe themselves as such:
Sensebridge is a research and collaboration group based at Noisebridge, a hackerspace in San Francisco, California. We are concerned with human-machine interfaces and making the invisible visible. We aim to bridge our senses by augmenting our bodies with wearable electronics. We’re making ourselves (and you) into cyborgs!
