So which limbs and other body parts are you willing to part with in order to get augmented versions of them?
being a meatbag is for subhuman niggers
Eyes and maybe skeletal structure, provided it's easier to enhance that than completely replace limbs.
I'm alright with going full skull+spine in a cyborg body though, just don't want my meat parts to go to waste.
>to become a qt cyborg gril just like motoko
This guys got the right idea.
I'd probably stay male though.
>augmenting your body out of vanity
Disgraceful. Did you learn nothing?
I wouldn't replace anything at all, because I don't need it. Humanity has come this far unaided, we don't need to start mucking about with augs now.
Hanzers get out.
In your haste to replace what is yours naturally, have you forgotten the practical limitations of augmentation?
The human body is notoriously hostile toward foreign entities. Enjoy your newfound dependency on anti-rejection drugs. Enjoy living on the pharmaceutical industry's leash.
Eyes and ears
Perception and awarness are just one perk.
Imagine having X-ray or Thermal vision, or having a language translator in your ears, or being able to pinpoint that one important voice in a sea of noise?
The augmented senses would result in augmented reaction times as well, the only con I can see is the possibility of failure and going deaf and blind for good.
>Imagine having X-ray or Thermal vision, or having a language translator in your ears, or being able to pinpoint that one important voice in a sea of noise?
Oh man I'd be able to shitpost on all languages and notice when mum is coming so I can hide the porn.
Are you able to replace your entire nerve network with augmentations in Human Revolution? I have a degenerative disorder called charcot-marie-tooth disease that makes playing vidya a little bit harder every day, and I'm worried that it's only a matter of years until I won't be able to hold a controller anymore, let alone properly time dodges and parries and such in more action-oriented games.

bro, nanomachines, replaces fucking everything
Are you trying to tell me you DON'T want to be able to see any woman you see naked?
Or that you don't want to be able to see when your PC is overheating?
or that understanding other languages in this day and age isn't useful?
or that you've never had to ask someone to repeat themselves a few times because it was too loud around you?
You don't have to be a hero about it, anon.
>Never heard of the condition before
>Sounds legit, google it just to check
>Images like pic related
Fuck, anon. If you're not bullshitting about having it I'm really sorry.
You've described my personal hell. Life truly is suffering
>Are you trying to tell me you DON'T want to be able to see any woman you see naked?
Not really it would probably ruin it for me. Got an acquaintance whose family makes him go to nudist beaches and he can't get it up for naked chicks anymore, now he's only into lingerie/clothed sex.
And if I really want to see naked chicks I could just watch some porn.
>Or that you don't want to be able to see when your PC is overheating?
Why would I do a super expensive operation just for that when I have an app? I mean I never had problems with PC overheating to begin with.
>or that understanding other languages in this day and age isn't useful?
Who would I have to understand anyway in the comfiness of my room? I already play japanese porn games with machine translations, and I doubt technology gives you "augmented translations". It'll feel like people talking in google translate.
>or that you've never had to ask someone to repeat themselves a few times because it was too loud around you?
Do I look like someone who goes to parties?
Arms, legs, ears, eyes, jaw, heart, lungs, as many internals as possible, and a few neural implants.
I'm just being realistic brah, don't be a cunt.
I'm not opposed to technology, I'd gladly use things that would prolong my life-span, but the things you mentioned are really only useful if you're in the military or the such and near useless for my day to day use.
Well, i guess the practicality isn't there for everyone. I always wish I could set up an external mic to my headphones so I could hear the world around me mixed with my music, and yeah, thermal and X-ray vision isn't THAT useful, but it would be fucking cool, admit it.
Good god anon.
You're not joking are you?
You're entire nerve system needs to be replaced? It's not just your hands?
Does it hurt? It looks like it hurts.
I mean, we've been moving forward in the cybernetic department faster than ever so there's a chance they'll have something for you before you...well...
That must be hell, anon.
Would have said eyes first but I ain't going blind when that shit runs out of power or gets hacked.
New legs would be cool, love going fast. That and sitting on my ass all day doesn't make them greek god material.
Thank you both, I appreciate the condolence, even if it is self-indulgent of me to accept them.
I heard about the fighting game player who's horribly crippled and plays with his feet, but I'm not sure what you're referring to with League. Regardless, I can't actually play those games to begin with. I have no reflexes whatsoever, anon, and I mean that in the most literal way possible. I never have and I never will, diagnosed by a neurologist. Reflexes are very important for footsies and juking, and my neural pathways are so damaged that it takes a signal from my brain seven times longer to reach my hands than it would for a normal person, which puts me at an extreme disadvantage that makes those games unfun in the first place.
It really is.
No, I'm not joking. You don't know how much I wish I was.
As I alluded to in my previous responses within this post, yeah, it's my entire nervous system. The entire thing is damaged beyond repair, and the only thing I can hope for is a drug that will stop the damage from progressing, but that is unlikely to be developed within my lifetime, and it would not repair the damage that has already been done.
It does hurt sometimes, but luckily I'm only twenty, so it hasn't gotten to the point of horrific contractures just yet. It occasionally feels like my knuckles are going to explode, and the same can be said for the joints in my toes, as well as a tearing sensation in the arches of my feet as those bow upwards over time. The foot stuff hurts more than the hand stuff.
In any case, I try to maintain hope, but neurological disorders are so tempermental that doctors tend to treat the symptoms instead of trying to fix the root of the problem, because they're more likely to cause harm than any good. So, it's hard to be hopeful. In any case, I appreciate your sentiment, anon.
The human body is just a tool for the brain to operate with, so if I had the option to replace that tool with a better one, I would do it in a blink.
If evolution don't happen sooner, we'll force it no matter the cost, that's the truth scent of humanity. Never wait for something you can do yourself.
Also, I don't wanna have to deal with having to take a shit/piss every now and then and learn stuff quicker and easier without having to be a slave to a book or waste years learning it.
What do I have to augment to get the cool shield he has in the Mankind Divided trailer?
Three minutes in; what generates that?
Thinking about this deeper, is it realistic to augment just a few things if you're going with heavy-weight augs? Let's say you just want beefy cyber-Hulk arms. Don't you then need to replace your anchoring shoulder muscles, the neck muscles that are linked to those, several muscles on your back, and then core mucles for the sake of stabilizing your awkwardly balanced, augmented body? At that point you would probably need lower body augs too, because the weight from all that metal in your upper body would be tearing your knee cartilage apart, and if you're replacing your knees you're probably replacing more than just them while you're in that somatic neighborhood.
Sufficiently advanced augmentations (meaning, not anything that will actually exist anytime soon) could probably be made to be very light and largely independent from the rest of the body.
Do you think they're sufficently advanced enough to be that light in the the Deus Ex prequels though, anon? That's mostly what I was getting at, though I apologize for not making it clear.
I'm not entirely sure the setting's at that point. Or, perhaps it's more accurate to say that those with cutting-edge augs like Adam are, but those with older tech, like the augmented slum-dwellers we saw in Human Revolution, would have to deal with heavier, cumbersome, inelegant solutions that 'worked' but were far from ideal, and had several of the supplementary bodily modifications I mentioned.
My hand, firstly. Only one, though, I doubt fapping with metal would feel very good.
Then my lungs, eyes, and my foot.
Absolutely. Who wouldn't?
Bonus points if one of my hands could turn into a miniature taser.
The humor of the "peanus weenus" post comes from its purity. It is the kind of humor you can expect from a small child around the age of six. You can just imagine the little boy carefully typing down the post, giggling like a beautiful cherub.For him he invented what is basically the epitome of comedy. He is a glorious angel bringing the gift of laughter to all his 4chan friends.
He has something in his hand, while he types. What could it be?
Why, it is his peanus weenus, of course. He giggles at the thought of it.
It is his weeenus peanus. His laughter continues, getting louder.
The object in his hand is his peanus weenus. His laughter has now awakened his grumpy mother.
This is the fifth time this month this has happened and she has had enough. She loudly slammed her son's door, sharp knife in hand. She's going to cut it off.
"No, not my peanus weenus!" the boy pleaded. His mother only grinned sadistically.
"Please to not cut off my weeenus peanus!" She pushed the sharp metal to her son's boy flesh.
No longer attached was the boy's peanus weenus. It was his mother's now.
Anything and everything in order to be this guy
Technically the tastebuds do only the surface-level, work, anon. Actual flavors more complex than 'savory', like the difference between chicken and beef, is figured out by our olfactory nerve.
So, what does this mean? If we don't have actual stomachs we wouldn't feel the satisfaction of going from 'hungry' to 'satisfied', removing a good bit of the fun of truly 'eating'. This could lead to interesting new products, like flavored oxygen designed to taste like our favorite meals. If we are never hungry we can't be unsatisfied in the way that chewing a good bit of food then spitting it out to avoid the calories would incite in us, so perhaps products of this type would be acceptable substitutes.
Every single one of them. I'm going to get
TESLA BLADED FISTSspecially.
I mean, robots don't age. Or get STDs. I don't even have to sleep.
Why would you want to robot only one or two things when you can robot everything?
Lungs, maybe spine.
You wouldn't escape it forever, you know. And no matter how long you put death off, there will still come a time when it can no longer be avoided and you know that your time is almost up. Best to make peace with it as soon as you can rather than running scared.
Not a thing that exists
Not very useful
Google's working on this, it's not that hard, expect in before 2020. Sure it'll be through your phone, but it already works for written text and spoken won't be too far behind
>being able to pinpoint that one important voice in a sea of noise
When do you need this?
