Up For Debate - What Cybernetic implants would you choose in real life?

Okay, we realize this should have been part of the slew of Cyberpunk 2077-themed Up For Debates we did last weekend, but we just thought of it this week and thought it would be really fun to chat about and couldn’t help ourselves. With CP2077 finally released last week, we thought it would be cool to ask you guys what cybernetic implants would you choose in real life, if you could?

Cyberpunk 2077 has a huge variety of cybernetics and implants that players can choose to elevate their abilities. From super strong legs that let you jump higher, to arms with literal swords hidden inside them, we want to hear from you what kind of cybernetic would you choose in real life?

To make this fair, everyone gets only 1 choice, because otherwise we could all just say “all of them” and that wouldn’t be fun. So what’s the one thing you really want? Is it eyeballs that let you record video at any moment? Fire resistant skin? A cell phone in your thumb? What’ll it be, choom?

In order for the poll below to make sense and not become overwhelmingly convoluted, we ask you to pick which body part your cybernetic of choice would belong to. So if it’s eyeballs or brain then that would go under head, or if it's stuff to do with your fingers or hands then that would be arms. If it’s something that includes your whole body like skin or... other places (wink)... then just choose “other”.

As a quick side note: Cyborgs already exist in our world right now as prosthetics begin to change the game for those who have lost limbs due to various reasons. And I just want to take the time here to say that they are the real superheroes of today, and in no way are we trying to devalue them or their disabilities. We just want to have some fun and discuss some various technologies that would be cool to see come true in the future.

So what do you think? Would you get a real life cybernetic implant? What kind of cybernetic implant would you choose in real life and why? Let’s debate!

Would you get a real life cybernetic implant?

What kind of cybernetic implant would you choose?

Do you think Cyberpunk 2077 is close to what the future will look like?

not really an implant as such cause lets be honest there is always the risk of hacking. but a device that sort of connects and interfaces with the brain so you can use a machine or computer without physically interacting with it. the potent

potential for this tech will be insane. we will all be math genius, with the potential of gathering information rapidly. Learn to drive a car or fix it by letting your computer google or calculate the solution for you. obviously before this

we will need an Ai first. a computer self that can process information like we do. not the half step that is the machine learning algorithms we currently have. heck we will be able to make games by telling this Ai do this. I want it to beha

behave like this. tweak the physics to be arcady more realistic or hyperreal. hell a computer Ai like that would acctuly be able to simulate various scenarios before executing its move. and that would also help it go beyond the bounds of ti

time. things that would take years decades even to be solved or possibly even concived would be solveable by simply adding more processing power and memory then ramping ups speeds. cancer might get a cure and Racing will change forever

I would outright refuse a cybernetic implant. In fact I wouldn't want any sort of chip or literally anything electronic in my body, including a pacemaker.

I'd be more interested in genetic alteration..... unfortunately that's not really possible as an adult and would have to be done at the embryonic level, so I guess I'm screwed there..... I think if I were going to go cybernetic, I wouldn't want a full on limb replacement..... maybe something like an implant that electrically stimulates your muscles to give you super human strength and speed..... that could be cool.

I mean think of it, a little octopus DNA, a little squid DNA, a little bat DNA, a little blue whale DNA(for size), and suddenly you're born as the great old one Cthulhu..... how great would that be?

Yeah, I would get cybernetic implants, if possible, everywhere. :-D As for how realistic CP future is, I doubt it is very, like it will take a lot of time before implants even become a thing. Plus there is question of how to ensure them to be safe from hacking or corporate bulls***, like selling functionality, subscription, needing to be online to activate,...

Imagine you get cybernetic eyes and you can't pay subscription or something and they just turn off or start bombarding you with ads... I mean sure it wouldn't happen early on when they have to earn trust, but latter... I think all bad stuff we see in games they will try to move to cyberware. So yeah, I feel CP will just keep being fantasy. But outside of that, I would get everything.

Less gaming, more moving and less food = solution. It isn't exactly complicated, but it does take time... :D

i would prefer an exoskeleton over a cybernetic implant that would help my current body instead of changing it

exactly no matter how adavnced the implants are nothing beats getting a sick suit. Look at Halo, Crysis

...assuming the tech would be safe, and I could afford it (two rather large assumptions there), I'd take new lungs.
...because due to a chronic illness, my actual real lungs are... let's call it "suboptimal".

While it is a convincing future in its own right, it's a different timeline based on a different trajectory branching out from the 80s/90s, so I had to say it's not close at all.

i would like and wouldnt in the same time, i mean depending would that implant be hardware only or with software, if the first one sure i could use some new spine to get rid of the back pain but if it has software as well fck that i would rather not have that feel that someone can turn part of me off as he pleases

When you do nothing but sit in a chair gaming - your back muscles essentially atrophy, letting the discs slip and crush the nerves, hence the pain. I used to have it as well as a teenager and the remedy was to start moving around :D
