03/07/2014, Scientists have apparently come up with an orgasm machine, where it is capable of delivering a climax at the single push of a button. This particular idea hails from a surgeon in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where the point of its existence is not to lead the whole world into a constant state of pleasure, but rather, to treat folks who suffer from orgasmic dysfunction. It will require surgery, of course, […]
03/07/2014, A brain implant in Alex Frederick’s brain has allowed the little boy to hear for the first time in his 17 months of living, thanks to the presence of a brain implant that was performed in a Boston hospital. This particular device has yet to be approved in the United States for children, but this move ought to help change the perception. In fact, it has been implanted directly into […]
02/10/2014, Medical science has certainly advanced by leaps and bounds over the years. Remember those old school hearing aids? Well, the modern day ones are a whole lot smaller and work better, but what happens when bionic parts are introduced to the body without requiring any kind of exterior hardware to work? Imagine a cochlear implant which will charge itself wirelessly, relying on the natural microphone of the middle ear instead […]
12/01/2013, Some time ago, we talked about how a woman decided to get creative by implanting a platinum heart into her eyeball as a fashion statement of sorts, which certainly did not go down well with certain quarters. After all, having something invade our bodies is not an experience that most folks would be comfortable with, and the needle is also a fearful thing to face for some of us. However, […]
11/21/2013, We’ve seen people implant some interesting things into their bodies, such as the dude who implanted headphones into his ears or that guy who implanted a large biometric computer chip into his forearm.At least those two people had legitimate reasons to implant those objects into their bodies, but a heart sequin implanted into an eyeball? There’s just no reason for this.
11/01/2013, We learned a long time ago people love their technology, with some even going as far as implanting them into their bodies. Earlier this year, we saw a man implant headphones into his ears, and today we’re seeing a man who put a computer inside of his arm.
07/26/2013, It looks like there is no need for a telepath like Professor X in our reality to do the tricky job of memory implants, as there is always good ol’ science to fall back upon. It seems that scientists have successfully implanted false memories into mice, and this is made possible via optical fibers that have been inserted into a mouse’s brain activated memory forming cells. This will, in effect, […]

06/20/2013, Brain stem implant helps 3-year old boy to hear.
03/25/2013, So, they say that there is an app for everything, and I would think that such a description is getting more and more apt each day, as new apps as well as accessories are released. Case in point, this unique medical implant, touted to be the smallest in the world by scientists over at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, where it measures a mere 14mm and is said […]
05/03/2012, Remember the Six Million Dollar Man? Well, I am quite sure if inflation was to be taken into account, Steve Austin would be worth far more than that today with his cybernetic enhancements, but this is another can of worms altogether. What we are interested in today is a new ‘bionic eye’ microchip which has been implanted in the eyes of two blind British men, and the interesting thing is, […]
02/03/2012, We live in an extremely stressful society these days, as everything needs to be instant, and to deliver less than expected is deemed by some to be a major failure. Well, the Department of Defense’s research agency is looking out for a new kind of body sensors, that when implanted into their soldiers, such sensors are capable of checking out the stress level of that particular person at all times. […]
11/15/2011, Body modifications have been the norm for some years already, and some of them might still take some getting used to such as tongue splitting, but here is a concept that will definitely throw you off balance – I’m referring to having stiletto heel implants. Goodness knows how you’re ever going to complete a decent round of jogging once you have these implants inside of you! I would suppose if […]
10/04/2011, For those of us who are not deaf or hard of hearing, have you ever wondered how is it like to live a silent life? Since a picture speaks a thousand words, just check out the emotion the lady above displayed after she described herself in a short excerpt, “I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it […]
