The Anthro Package
Hopefully by now, everyone’s seen this pic of what humans would look like with honest-to-God tails:
But I was thinking something much closer to this:
But instead of hanging limp and lifeless from a belt, have a network of contractile nano-fibers, skin grown in a lab (like they do for skin grafts), biocompatible synthetic fur, and a control system wired into our spinal cord.
These seem like they’d be easy to do. Essentially a modification of the fingernails so that they’re curled, pointy, and attached to muscle tissue in the fingers. I’d never need a pocket knife again. 🙂
The Cyber Package
It would totally be great to be able to interact with the Internet natively with my brain.
USB ports that connect to my CNS? Sign me up!
200x digital zoom, AROs, instant info about anything we look at, etc.
Fingertip multimeter / taser
The latter is obvious. The former would be ever so handy for working on electronics.
It would be great to have a system that would tweak our cardiovascular output for maximum efficiency and regulate it so that it couldn’t ever get outside of safe operating parameters. Our current wetware is supposed to take care of most of that but seems to fail pretty often when we go outside our fitness zone.
