With the help of technology, we are witnessing several big leaps in the health area. And now technology has helped a British scientist, who’s terminally ill, to turn into a cyborg. The term cyborg means a cybernetic organism that has the physical abilities way beyond human limitations thanks to mechanical elements built in their body.

The scientists went through a sequence of surgeries for helping him have a normal life, such as a tube inserted directly to his stomach for feeding, a colostomy bag for collecting stools attached onto his colon, and a catheter inserted into the bladder, which he says is a highly risky procedure.

In addition, he too a laryngectomy to prevent saliva from getting into his lungs. It also meant that he could no longer speak. Nevertheless, the British scientist created a synthetic speech device and an avatar of his own face that relies on AI to respond to body language. The avatar will come in handy as he loses his face motions.

Furthermore, he is working on an eye-tracking tech to help himself control computers by going through laser surgery to have a better vision when he sits need the computer screen.

Experts told Dr. Scott-Morgan that he may not survive this year, but he said last month that he was not dying, he was transforming, and that he loves science.

In another statement, he said that his physical interaction will obviously become robotic. Meanwhile, his five senses will be enhanced. But the more important part is that part of his brain, as well as his external persona, would be electronic soon, completely synthetic. He stated that from then onwards, he would part wetware/part hardware, part analogue/part digital.

The scientist even has plans to further upgrade this arrangement in the coming time.
