A long time from now, I imagine these people may be seen as the pioneers of a new paradigm.
"The implants sit in various places under my skin: middle fingertips of my left hand, back of the right hand, right forearm — tiny magnets, five or six millimeters across, coated in gold and then in silicon to isolate the delicate metal from the destructive environment of your body. They’re something of an investment at about thirty euros apiece, and hard to get hold of, but worth pursuing. When implanted, they become technological sensory organs."
The more I research wetware tech, the more I want to find a way to implant a fiber-optic HD audio input into my body, I just don’t know how I would go about rigging it up to my hearing/auditory-system.
