    I was wondering if there would be any way for an individual to modify their body to have specific advantages, like something out of a syfy movie. And if so, could you list some of them as well? Im not asking about the region of drugs or steroid related, more along the line of permanent/semi-permanent surgeries - not including plastic surgery

    has been doing some interesting things with cybernetic implants (look in the link under "Project Cyborg"). Not sure if this is what you're looking for but it's the first thing that came to mind.

    Interesting question, I think the key here is the type of advantages you are trying to create, for example it might well be possible to put electronic implants behind the ears to give you "Super Hearing", given that we are able to create very good miniture listening devices, but if you are asking wether it's possible to make someone invisible or to fly then I'd have to say that would seem very unlikely. It could though perhaps be possible to engineer things that may be useful to a persons job or for specific tasks, many of the apps we find on mobile phones and for that matter the mobile phone itself could well be placed into people.

    I suppose also there is the potential for missuse here as well though, just imagine criminal gangs catching on to this idea and having lead lined time locked boxes surgically sewn into peoples stomachs for the purpose of smuggling, the police would be at a severe disadvantage as they would have no way of knowing or finding out what's in the box and thus no evidence to detain said suspects.

    I wasnt sure for what exactly i was looking for, thats why i posted on here, but i didnt mean something as improbable as flying or going invisible (unless that is possible, i would like to know lol) I want to know also what we could achieve through GM. (if i sound like im watching too many movies,.... its because i am,) I want something thats purely fiction to become a reality. Morality is not my concern LOL
