Human Augmentation

Human Augmentation (人間拡張)Human augmentation is a research area that aims to expand and/or replenish the capabilities of human beings by the use of technology. The scope of “augmentation” can be thought of not only in terms of intellectual capacities, but also in terms of the amplification of cognitive capacities, physical capacities, the sense of existence, and physical systems (health). As symbolized by the expression, “The unity of horse and rider,” we think that ultimate technology is something that becomes one with human beings themselves and continues to expend their lives.

Herebelow are some such researches conducted at Sony CSL.
