STUDENTS and sci-fi enthusiasts got the chance to meet a ‘real-life human cyborg’ as part of a special demonstration.

Kevin Warwick is Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading where he carries out research in artificial intelligence, robotics and cyborgs.

He became known as the world’s first cyborg when he had a silicon chip implanted in the nervous system of his arm, in order to link his brain directly with a computer. He then became the first person in the world to communicate electronically between his own and his wife’s nervous system.
