1C | SWALLOWABLE? | EXTENDING SCENARIO DESIGN

Our scenario visualisation of 2050 forecasts the seamless integration of nanotechnology into human biological systems – life becomes smooth, personalised and unhindered. The physicality of technology is no longer felt. Having progressed exponentially since the Great Acceleration, will the alteration of our biological make up and its associated processes be accepted as naturally as our […]

1B | INTO THE HUMAN SYSTEM | PRIMARY RESEARCH

At For Selfish Eggs, we speculate about future technologies that extend human capabilities, improving our standard of living. I talked to Raymond Hayler, a final year medical science student at UNSW majoring in physiology, about where he sees technology moving in the future and whether artificially generating bodily systems will be possible. In your field […]

1A | US, TECHNOLOGY AND THE ANTHROPOCENE | THE ANTHROPOCENE

The Anthropocene is described as the time that humans have been on Earth, categorised by our rapid industrial development through which the biosphere drastically changed. Motivated by self-interests, the declining state of our environment continues, generating a hope that the future will not be bleak as forecasted. We, as a whole, have fallen into the […]

Existing Technologies

It’s clear that we’re entering a new age of insight into ourselves, wearable technology and biofeedback are only going to continue to grow as new technology comes along. Simply consider that while EEG has been around since the early 1900’s, we’re at a point now where we can purchase our own devices, measure our brainwaves […]

1A | WE ARE SOFT BODIES | HUMAN TECHNOLOGY INTERACTIONS

When talking about technology, we cannot leave out the human. Technology evolves in tandem with our desire for the better, the superior. In our current cultural climate, this intrinsic relationship allows technology to become embedded within our personal selves – our personal traits that we consider individual in a landscape of automated voices and movements.
