It has been some time ago that I first posted the Deus Ex: Human Revolution original trailer about the stunning video game from Eidos. The clip is so visually captivating that I am forced to re-watch it every once-in-a-while and ponder the myriad of profound issues that it touches on. Even more so, a reader of this blog once told me that it was seeing the Deus Ex trailer for the first time that made him aware of transhumanism and consequently pushed him to devote his life to studying it.
Enter Rob Spence. Those who missed my interview with Rob should know that he is known as the Eyeborg – a self proclaimed cyborg who lost an eye in an accident and replaced it with a wireless video camera. Rob is a wacky documentarian and recently joined forces with the gang from Square Enix to create Deus Ex: The Eyeborg Documentary.
When I posted the original trailer I asked: “What are the odds of those clips becoming reality?”
Well, as it turns out, this 15 minute documentary attempts to reply to that (rhetorical) question by investigating the latest in prosthetics, cybernetics and human augmentation.
So, how far are we from the future presented to us in Deus Ex: Human Revolution?
