Blending Humanity with Technology

Artificial Intelligence is all well and good, but how does that benefit me specifically.  What I'm talking about is having the ability to increase my mental capacity.  As in increasing my memory, ability to learn new subjects, perhaps super strength or better eyesight.  Kind of like the 6 million dollar man.

What I'm talking about is sort of a hybrid solution, by increasing the performance of humans by integrating with technology.  

Sports players have been taking performance enhancers for years.  Because when you're paid to perform, it makes sense to do what it takes to become a better performer.

So if humans have the ability to remember better, or learn faster, why not.  If I could download a program into the memory, to allow me to drive a tank instantly, that sure could become useful depending on the situation, Matrix style.

Altering the human body to become better.  It's easy to envision, in the not so distant future, a hybrid solution of humanity and technology.

I suppose you could go a step further, and discuss genetic engineering.  As in paying for body parts or genetically alterations.  Perhaps this topic boards on ethical concerns, as some people may or may not be able to afford such luxuries.  And what about good old human imperfections, been around for 100,000 years, we've gotten used to them.  I don't really have an opinion on this one.

So we talked about merging humans with technology and genetic engineering, both coming to a theater near you.  At some point.
