The next step in human development?

This video discusses how we have already started and will probably continue using technology to improve human performance. We already started using pace makers and prosthethics that might be better than the real thing.

The next logical step is to start enhancing the performance of our brains. We have already began with implants that can treat epilepsy. Is the next step to help people with concentration difficulty really that far off? Where it goes after that is anybody's guess.

The contents of the video is based on the book Amped by Daniel H Wilson.
