    Sports: Cyborg Athletes versus Able-bodied athletes In sports there are always rules and regulations to what an athlete can ingest or use. They create these rules and regulations so competitors don 't have a physical or psychological advantage over their competition. These restrictions usually pertain to illegal drugs and substances that would give that athlete a boost in their performance. Prosthetics and technological enhancements should be considered as a restriction, considering it is an advantage just like illegal drugs and the substances.

    But this ideology is as dangerous as driving while only looking in the rear-view mirror, instead of looking straight at what’s ahead of you (Warwick 2). Look at Instagram for example. It retrieves the nostalgic feeling of Polaroid cameras. Hall: Okay. But that’s just your interpretation of the world. At least with the mass communication model the results make sense and are one of: Dominant, Negotiated, or Oppositional.(Chandler 2). Like my oppositional view of technological determinism (Bal,…

The term “Cyborg” originates in the title of a book a few years after “bionics” is coined, and is largely based on the research surrounding it.

    When someone uses the term “prosthetics”, what is the first thing to come to mind? Is it an advanced robotic arm, or a simple plastic prosthetic hand, no more complicated than a mannequin’s? These shouldn’t necessarily be such opposites, but it is almost certainly true that the latter is more common than the former. Prosthetics have come an extremely long way since their induction. Pirates and peg legs tend to give us a reminder of how far we’ve come since the dark times where a prosthetic was a…
