Are human self-augmentation and robotic development poles of the same phenomenon? Can we go too far in making ourselves machinelike or making machines resemble us? And once made, what will such creatures think about us? These questions will arise in myriad ways in the next few decades, as once purely fictional concepts - robots, cyborg parts, and the many variations in between - become part of reality, and we press against boundaries that until recently existed only in works of the imagination. Written in a lively and provocative style, this book is about the accumulation of small scientific advances that add up to something large and challenging.
