Cyborgs: Sci-fi or the Future?
Cyborgs have been widely featured in films and shows as creative expressions of art. The extraordinary powers held by subjects in films such as in movies produced by Marvel Studios show how organic matter can be fused with technology to restore function or enhance performance. The stark differences in capabilities between cyborgs and their organic counterparts put in question the reality of cyborgs. On the other hand, the development of technology and the drift towards the fusion of organic matter with mechatronic abilities for restorative and enhancement purposes also gives a future to past imaginations.
