Amazing MIT Technology

The wow factor is high. Current practical usage is low. As this technology develops it could be quite transformative. Think competitive sports or fitness arenas, dynamically changing living environments or spaces. Amazing!

Thumbs Up!

This may look simple, but it is a beginning of ways to enhance the human body to better perform tasks and will lead to better human performance. A low level start to transhumanism today.
