How far can we push the limits of what it means to be human? Will using technology to improve and enhance our bodies be the next step in human evolution?

In this documentary, futurist Nik Badminton guides us through three streams of the global biohacking movement: wearables, implantables, and superhuman exoskeletons. We also interview Pacific Northwest innovators (VitalSines, Dangerous Things, Prosthesis: The Anti-Robot) and find out how anyone with a computer - not just scientists and doctors - can use technology to alter and change the normal biology of living things.

This documentary program is an excellent discussion starter on the biohacking movement and the complex intersection of biology, science, and technology.
