The Cyborg Foundation

Yes this is real.

http://www.cyborgfoundation.com/

Quote:
Neil Harbisson (27 July 1982)[7] is a Catalan-raised, Northern Ireland-born contemporary artist, composer and cyborg activist best known for his self-extended ability to hear colours and to perceive colours outside the ability of human vision.[8] In 2004 he became the first person in the world to wear an eyeborg.[9] The inclusion of the eyeborg on his passport photo has been claimed by some to be official recognition of Harbisson as a cyborg.[10] Colour and the use of technology as an extension of the performer, and not as part of the performance, are the central themes in Harbisson's work. In 2010, he founded the Cyborg Foundation, an international organisation to help humans become cyborgs.[1
No words need to be said, the guy is an official cyborg.

Cyborgs were good party members in Phantasy Star.

If I were going to convert myself into a cyborg, I'd hope to at least look like a Borg or a similar badass....not a New Wave rocker with a webcam taped over his eye.

If this guy is a cyborg, then Steve Mann is a cyborg.
