We are all cyborgs now: Amber Case on TED.com

Technology is evolving us, says Amber Case, as we become a screen-staring, button-clicking new version of homo sapiens. We now rely on “external brains” (cell phones and computers) to communicate, remember, even live out secondary lives. But will these machines ultimately connect or conquer us? Case offers surprising insight into our cyborg selves. (Recorded at TEDWomen, December 2010 in Washington, DC. Duration: 7:53)
