By Ray Villard Some futurists caution that humans could likely become extinct sooner than later in the face of a technological Armageddon. You might call it an evolutionary phase transition when intelligent machines, nanobots, or some other creation of man gone amok wipes us all out. Alternately, the seemingly inevitable marriage between man and machine may go down less Draconian pathways branching into an infinity of possibilities. For example, in Arthur C. Clarke=92s 3001: The Final Odyssey (1997) humans all shave their heads so they can wear a computer-interface BrainCap, er, iCap? And then there=92s Star Trek=92s infamous Borg =97 a collection of species that have been turned into cybernetic organisms functioning as drones in an interstellar hive. While the future of mankind is unknowable, illustrator Nickolay Lamm has produced a set of imaginative evolutionary changes to the human face over the next 100,000 years. [More at site...
