These pages contain an overview of the various researches and projects being undertaken in the field of cybernetics.
The term Cyborg, also known as a cybernetic organism, was coined by Manfred Clynes and Nathan Kline around 1960.
This exciting technology could enable humans to increase their intelligence, sensory capabilities and even allow new ways of communicating with those around them.
Further research is ongoing to look at how this technology can be introduced and used in commercial, medical and domestic sectors.
View the various cyborg projects which have been carried out and provided further advancement to the area of cyborg technology.
Kevin Warwick, Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, carries out research in artificial intelligence, control, robotics and biomedical engineering. He has instigated a series of pioneering experiments, even implanting neuro-surgical devices into his own median nerves.
Meet Jesse Sullivan, the first bionic man.
Insects with modified body structures are being developed for use in the warfare environment in order to conduct surveillance missions to transmit back data that could help to prevent acts of terrorism. These flying insects are controlled by stimulating the brain to work the wings for take off, flight and landing.
