Futurism: It’s the stuff of cyberpunk science fiction — tattoos adorned with flashing lights and sophisticated circuitry. They’ll monitor our vitals, we’re told, and feed us personalized health advice in real time. They’ll wire our biology to the web, and put the internet of things at — on, in — our fingertips. They’ll enhance our five senses, and perhaps even give us new ones.
This type of human augmentation is depicted in Circuits, the first episode of Glimpse, a new original sci-fi series from Futurism Studios (a division of Futurism LLC) and DUST. Watch the first episode below. more …

Biological 3D printers could repair spinal cord injuries and usher us into the post-computer era
Opinion: It is not hard to imagine that governments will need to have embedded chips in these devices.
From the article: All of these technologies we’re developing will lead to the post-computer era. You’re basically going from 2D to 3D [microchips to integrated circuitry], which is essentially what biology is. So, that’s where the merger of electronics and biology is going to happen. Any privacy or ethical issues that spring from that aren’t going to be much different from the ones that we have with current electronics.
The new technology will provide:
- Biocompatible materials that allow electronics to seamlessly fuse with the body
- Tattoos that can control a smartphone
- Expand the capabilities of 3D printing beyond hard plastic, and toward “functional materials”
- 3D scanning enables us to scan the surface that’s being printed, like an organ, or a nerve
- Renewing or regrowing damaged tissue to restore nervous system function
- Systems that are detached from the grid
Once the Restrainer and the Church He indwells is removed (1 Thess. 4:16-18), it will be a piece of cake to convince a godless society of the benefits of such technologies. Artificial intelligence will fill the built-in need to worship, for a time.
For 2000 years, Revelation 13:16-17 seemed futuristic, until this generation.
