Yes, Oscar, as much as we all admire you the race is not fair. It has never meant to be. Just as you did change the world of athletics, Alan Oliveira did changed it again until the next race when someone else will change it.

The point of human enhancing is that there is never going to be end to the race, there is never going to be a dominant technology and it is never going to be fair. Because it is actually not race between two humans but between two technologies. And technologies evolve, emerge and prosper in technology life-cycles not in human life-cycles.

BTW see the interactive infografic below for some interesting data about the race:

“Vaxil Biotherapeutics Ltd. announced today positive interim results from its Phase I/II therapeutic cancer vaccine trial in Multiple Myeloma patients.
Vaxil is a private clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing a new class of synthetic T-cell vaccines based on its proprietary VaxHit technology. Vaxil’s lead product ImMucin is an anti-MUC1 therapeutic vaccine and is currently being evaluated in a Phase I/II clinical trial in Multiple Myeloma patients at Hadassah Medical Center, Jerusalem. ImMucin is potentially applicable to over 90% of all types of cancer, encompassing both solid and non-solid tumors. Vaxil is also developing another VaxHit derived vaccine, MTbuVax, for the treatment of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (MTb) which is in pre-clinical studies. Tuberculosis is one of the biggest causes of mortality worldwide. Recent years have seen a significant rise in the prevalence of treatment resistant TB, particularly in the developed world.”

MakerBot (http://store.makerbot.com/) have created the first cheap 3d printer which now displays the future of fabrication. DIY robotics have never seemed so attainable. And it would only take another one or twe machine generations before it is used for everything.

 

What is more amazing is that the creators behind the idea are not stopping there – they have started a community of creative people who would like to exchenge their designs.

 

They also strated their own internet TV (MakerBot TV) to inform the public the wide possibilities of their product.

A Machine making machine… A community of 3d modelling creative nerds… A tv channel for educating new possibilities… I am convinced. Are you?
