Body and Mind
Will Man and Machine Become One?
New technologies fulfil age-old dreams of mankind: no more diseases, no more ageing, perhaps eternal life.
At the same time, however, the technical possibilities also create frightening visions of optimised fellow human beings, genetically manipulated babies and cyborgs. How do we reconcile this as a society? Where is the trend of fitness trackers taking us? What happens when medical institutions receive our health data live? Will medically necessary prostheses and implants turn a person into a cyborg? With the help of many hands-on stations, the exhibition area conveys modern medical technology and biotechnology, outlines the advantages and disadvantages and gets to the bottom of the question of what actually makes a human being. At the end, visitors decide for themselves how far we really are from the Medical Tricorder from the sci-fi series "Star Trek", which is also on display.
