What Humans Will Look Like In 1,000 Years

Kind of an interesting, short one from Tech Insider. The argument that the next evolutionary step involves genetic engineering and the melding of man and machine is a compelling one.

A thousand years is less than a blink of an eye in the evolutionary clock. Rickenbacher39 is on the right track for a tool that provides the answer: a mirror. For good or bad we're kinda stuck with ourselves (or in his case stuck ON ourselves) for even the unforseeable future.

My money's on more "Planet of the Apes" than "Star Trek." Look at how many of those around us, while genetically human, have intellectually, behaviorally and socially devolved back into lower primates already...
Not to quibble, but the second image is from one of my favorite "Outer Limits" episodes... the early series not the remake. Although "Sand Kings" was pretty good in the second series. Do you recognize David McCallum in that brainiac pic?

primates are much more suited for survival then a vast majority of people already ...
