This category includes our posts reviewing the transhumanist technology in various films, shows and other popular media. These media reviews are not reviews or critiques of the writing quality, production quality, cinematography or continuity of these pieces of media themselves but purely the technology within them.

Our first posts in this category will be about Netflix’s ‘Black Mirror’ series, which includes many episodes based around the idea of transhuman technology and the idea of brain enhancement and uploads. We will only cover the episodes with relevant technology and give our analysis on whether the technology in the episode is plausible and by what means it could be achieved.

One clear example of this is in the episode ‘USS Callister’ where DNA is taken and a full copy of a person is digitised and trapped in a modified version of a game. Obviously, DNA cannot give you a cognition, though this could be achieved by other means.
