Puppet master

Exoskeletons, advanced implants and prosthetics are common and advance humans in many ways, such as physical power, extended functionality and compensating weaknesses. As all of these technologies will be connected, meant for the good, criminals abuse the control mechanisms to control humans to their needs - think of a puppet master.

Zolen I don't think we will quite reach the point of it being common by 2040. The tech will likely still be prohibitively expensive. If they do spread at all, as far as civilians go, only the well off crippled, and construction workers would likely have them at this point. Even when they start to become common, what would be the point of doing that? The tech would likely be incredibly complicated, meaning remote control would be very obvious because of how massive the data packets would have to be. You'd get caught, and you can't exactly do much with a few crippled people who likely would have kill switches on their devices all ready in case of bugs or hang ups.

Robi St.Antoine I don't see the puppet-master scenario playing out at all. The devices will likely be equipped with kill switches and anyways, what would be the point? Better to just steal and hack the exoskeletons for their own personal use in order to carry out their nefarious deeds.

Jhoseph toda la humanidad debería ser una sola, en un sistema socialista, pero eso podría ser en el futuro, donde ya no se necesite obreros y sean las maquinas quienes hagan todo el trabajo. Toda la tecnología debe ser usada para el progreso y bien estar de la humanidad.

Антон Дождиков Не совсем согласен. В России в армии до сих пор используются технологии 50-60 годов XX века ( компьютерная память на ферритовых стержнях). Такие гибридные электромеханические и аналоговые схемы невозможно взломать в силу их "тупизны". Вероятно подобным образом можно будет изолировать и упростить системы управления экзоскелетами, особенно в военной области. В России существует хорошая пословица: "Чем больше в армии дубов (простых, недалеких людей)- тем крепче оборона"

Andrew Plum This is true. There are already such things, except no hackers. The military uses them although they are quite large. The modern teenagers of that time will be different from now. For example, tattoos will be replaced with small exoskeleton parts installed in our bodies. Ear piercings replaced with robotic eyeballs or robotic parts of the brain. Good thinking, Marco.

random_man I think exoesqueletons, will begin beign only seen in professional surroundings. Like in construction sites or in factories. This will be due them being too expensive for common people, like happended with 3D printers. Also this first ones will be only for the military (like we are seeing) and for the enterprises that have the rights upon them. Once they begin beign affordable for ordinary people, it will happen a little like you see in teenagers with motorbikes. The "cool" kids will have robotics implants, and the one with the newest one will be a show off who'll get all the stacyes. A culture of "tunning" like the one surrounding cars or will be born but the object of tunning will be the human body. The people you see today getting tons of tatoos or piercings will be the ones who'll get most (unnecessary) implants in the future.

Ilya Babayev If a refrigerator, connected to network can be used to make DDOS atacks, why can't exoskeletons, implants etc? Long live, Eugene! I'm your customer;-)!
