How much longer
are we going to stay human?

Millions of tech pioneers around the world are working on optimizing human beings and their lives. And since science fiction is rapidly becoming reality. Will there come a point when our brain stops thinking without a computer? When we consider digital sex better than the real thing? And turn our body into a machine? We are living in the midst of an upheaval that could be more radical than anything our parents or grandparents ever experienced. But what does it all mean for us as human beings? Will we still end up as Homo Sapiens or as an entirely new species – Homo Digitalis?
