The Cyborg Experiment

The real X-men? Meet our human volunteers who have spent a week learning to use devices that give them new sensory powers.

They can feel magnetism, touch remotely and sense objects hidden behind walls. These are not comic book heroes but human volunteers at the Cheltenham Science Festival who have learned to use devices that give them new sensory powers. Artificial life researchers from the University of Sussex, and engineer Sarah Angliss reveal what happened during this week-long investigation and discuss its implications for medicine, entertainment and the study of human and machine intelligence.
