It's not going to be one or the other, the future is going to have BOTH cybernetic and biological enhancements at the same time.

A Stand-Up Comedian Tries to Cope with a World Where
People Are Becoming Transhuman:


"In the near future of the short film Enhanced, people can undergo a
procedure that blends their bodies with technology, becoming smarter,
healthier, and less anxious. But one stand-up comic finds he’s uneasy
with the promise of perfection."

Agreed, there two paths to same objective, so people will use a mix of both.

And it won't just be one way either, depending on personal preferences, we'll see people shifting around upgrades again, and again, and again.

Yer there going to be fashions and trends in the different kind of tech based and bio based transhuman technologies. I not be remotely surprised if different cultures and times make certain specific techs more prevalent than others.

And that's not even getting into how Transhumanism is going to fuck with culture and identity as we know it.

his article is old, but it played a huge role in developing my understanding of the world.

http://hplusmagazine.com/2014/05/08/...within-decade/

Though the Article primarily focuses on the scientific possibility of changing one's Sex with new technologies, the Author does make that the implications go far beyond this. Because of this article, I've come to see that Transhumanism will be the 800-pound Gorilla of Social Issues in the 21st Century. (Largely because it fucks really hard with one of the two major things that make people tick: Identity)

As a corollary to the old adage of "sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic', at the most advanced nanotech level biotech and cybernetic tech also become indistinguishable too.

The Latest Trend Among Biohackers Is Implanting LED
Lights Beneath Your Skin:


"Inspired by bioluminescent organisms, the DIY biohackers at
Grindhouse Wetware have unveiled their latest creation—a
magnetically activated, LED-equipped silicone implant.

As Motherboard reports, the Pittsburgh-based biohacking collective
performed three implantations in conjunction with a simultaneous
operation in Dusseldorf last Saturday. The new light-up device, dubbed
the Northstar V1, is about the size of a large coin, making it
considerably smaller than an earlier version, the Circadia 1.0 computer
chip. The procedure to implant the device required only 15 minutes
(gory pictures here), and was performed under strict conditions."


"Looking to the future, Grindhouse has big plans. A future version of
the chip could, in addition to its cosmetic functionality, deliver
important biometric information to an external device like a phone.
Another neat feature will be the ability of the chip to register a person’s
hand movements, and wirelessly relay those signals to receiving device.
It would serve as a customizable hands-free controller. You’ll never
have to say, “Hey Siri” again."

From alchemy to brain-hacking: How to be better, forever
Anders Sandberg tackles transhumanism for the rest of us:

"It’s the time of year where we stop to think about how we could make
ourselves better people. Well, if you spare around 50 minutes of your
time to watch our first 2015 Reg Winter Lecture vid, you’ll find out how
to be better not just next year, but for centuries.

At least that’s the possibility if Anders Sandberg, of the Future of
Humanity institute at Oxford, is correct about the possibilities of taking
control of our own evolution. And you can watch the whole video right
here."

Google Wants to Put a Camera In Your Eye:

"Sony and Google have both delivered plans for cameras that you would
wear on (or in) your eyes, and while the primary purpose of the devices
is your own recording, the implication of a “connected” camera recording
what you see means that others would have access to your vision."

See:

Let's see, where have I heard of something like this before............
Oh yeah:

How upgrading humans will become the next
billion-dollar industry:


"For all of humanity’s scientific, economic and artistic achievements, we have neglected
this ultimate self-improvement project, Harari said. Our bodies and brains, after all, still
run on the same hardware and software that evolved some 200,000 years ago.

Alphabet’s GOOG, -0.39% GOOGL, -0.35% Google already has a unit devoted to
overcoming death, Harari noted. And who can doubt that Apple AAPL, -0.22% will want
to pick from this new tree of knowledge, as well, or that after conquering self-driving
cars Uber, in spite of the antics of its CEO, will want to build an Übermensch?"

How Will We Stop Hackers From Invading Our Brains
Once We’re Cyborgs?:


"Rapid developments in brain-machine interfacing and neuroprosthetics are revolutionizing
the way we treat paralyzed people, but the same technologies could eventually be put to
more generalized use—a development that’ll turn many of us into veritable cyborgs.
Before we get to that point, however, we’ll need to make sure these neural devices are
safe, secure, and as hacker-proof as possible.

In anticipation of our cyborg future, researchers from the Wyss Center for Bio and
Neuroengineering in Geneva Switzerland have published a new Policy Forum paper in
Science titled, “Help, hope, and hype: Ethical dimensions of neuroprosthetics.” The intent
of the authors is to raise awareness of this new breed of neurotechnologies, and the
various ways they can be abused. Importantly, the researchers come up with some ways
to mitigate potential problems before they arise."

Antennas 100 times smaller than today could enable
tiny brain implants and other breakthroughs:


"Engineers have figured out how to make antennas for wireless communication 100
times smaller than their current size, an advance that could lead to tiny brain implants,
micro–medical devices, or phones you can wear on your finger. The brain implants in
particular are “like science fiction,” says study author Nian Sun, an electrical engineer
and materials scientist at Northeastern University in Boston. But that hasn’t stopped him
from trying to make them a reality."

By 2050 humans will attend own funerals as robots – futurologist:

"On top of planning your pension and future financial security, now's the time to put money aside for
downloading your brain data, according to a leading futurologist who says we'll be attending our own
funerals as robots by 2050.

Dr Ian Pearson, who has a self-proclaimed 85 percent accuracy record when looking 10 to 15 years
ahead, says humans will one day (and in the not too distant future) hook their minds up to external
machines while alive to boost intelligence, improve memory and sensory capacity.

External IT capabilities mean the technology can connect to your brain seamlessly so it feels exactly
the same, says Pearson. Furthermore, the scientist says that when you physically die, almost all of
your brain will still be functioning... as a machine.

"By around 2050, 99 percent of your mind is running on external IT rather than in the meat-ware in
your head," claimed Pearson in his blog, Futerizon.

When your human body eventually gives into inevitable fatal deterioration, Pearson says "assuming
you saved enough and prepared well" you can simply transfer your brain data to an android: "attend
your funeral, and then carry on as before, still you, just with a younger, highly upgraded body.""
