In this episode, I personally went to meet Dr. Kevin Warwick in Prague for a personal interview. We talk about how he became the world's first cyborg when he implanted a RFID capsule in his arm in 1998. With this, he was able to control the smart doors in his building as well as to play a personalized greeting when he entered his office.
Then in 2002 he had the Utah Electrode Array implanted in his arm and was the first person to receive signals directly into his nervous system.
We had a funny conversation about how these events occurred as well what it was like to be able to be the first to communicate telepathically. There are many people who say he was not the first cyborg but that is just a technicality. We can all agree that these two studies were groundbreaking in some way!
