Hack the Senses: S01E05 New Senses

2 June, 2016 @ 6:30 am - 9:30 pm


The final episode of Hack the Senses’ series of events will explore the possibility of creating new senses and discuss can we make perceptible what has hitherto been imperceptible? Hear from some of the pioneers in sensory augmentation, self-cyborgization, and full-body telepresence.

Event Schedule

6.30pm – Arrival, registration, drinks and chat

7.00pm – Welcome to Hack the Senses

7.15pm – Scott Novich  – tbc.

7:30pm – Ghislaine Boddington – tbc.

7.45pm – Neil Harbisson – The Future of our Species 

This talk will explore how taking an active part in our own biological evolution is no longer a theory, but an option. Becoming technology, instead of using or wearing technology, opens up the possibility of having additional organs and senses beyond the ones confined to our species. By merging ourselves with technology we can become the designers of our own body and perception; and we can increase our survival possibilities on Earth and in outer space. Are we witnessing the renaissance of our species?
