Your Body


This is the interface in your body or worn by your body. This interface is essentially part of your body (cyborg) or worn much as clothing (wearables).

Part of Your Body (cyborg)

The interface becomes part of your body. In essence you become part cyborg. A book that explores this is:

Michael Chorost - Rebuilt: How Becoming Part Computer Made Me More Human

Rebuilt: How Becoming Part Computer Made Michael Chorost More Human

The most direct interface is being testing in those that are getting artificial implants such as cochlear implants.  Michael Chorost  in his book (Rebuilt: How Becoming Part Computer Made Me More Human ) decribes how his obtaining a cochlear implant how he has become part cyborg. This is a interesting book in how one person feels on having his brain become part artificial.  He has a cochlear implant has several software upgrades after it is implanted.  These software upgrades help him to hear better - but his brain seems to need to adjust to the new software.

 

Worn as Clothing (wearables)


Wearable computing is much in the news.  For example, earlier this month Google finally revealed a secret project called Project Glass that can augment a person’s vision through a computer like pair of glasses. The glasses can stream information to the lenses and allow the wearer to send and receive messages through voice commands. There is also a built-in camera to record video and take pictures.


Another recent news example is Pebble which is an e-ink smartwatch that connects to iPhone and Android devices. The watch sports a 144 x 168 black-and-white e-ink display and also includes a vibrating motor, four buttons, a 3-axis accelerometer, and Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, which facilitates wireless connection to an Android or iOS device. Perhaps best: Pebble looks pretty darn slick.
