Real Clever Science

My name is Ari Einbinder. This is the journal of my travels into the realm of science and science education.
I've worked at science museums in NY (NYSCI and AMNH) and across Europe. Currently I'm studying "museology" (aka museum studies) at UW in Seattle, WA. I'm also one of Tumblr's Science Section editors.

I discuss anything that fascinates me, but popular topics include evolution, transhumanism (e.g BCI), futurism, psychology, quantum computing, climate change, sustainability, genetic engineering and occasionally politics - to name a few.

Enjoy!

"I am now filming your bionic hand with my bionic eye."

These words have been uttered - and aren’t science fiction.

Some of you may remember an awesome and startling video I posted in August for the video game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution (here). It depicted a dystopian future brought about by transhumanist upgrades from corrupt companies. Well, the Deus Ex people hired Rob Spense, a self-proclaimed “eyeborg" (who kinda reminds me of an early Snake Plisskin), to produce this mini-documentary about the current state of transhumanist upgrades, such as bionic eyes and limbs. Pretty interesting stuff, and I love that it was done by a game company, which is fascinating in itself.

"I mean, who says that a normal human leg is the optimal thing for you. [Our] species evolved to this leg we have now, but who says that’s the end of the line?"

Welcome to the Future everyone! Happy New Years from RCS!
