The end of evolution

Science will soon fuse flesh and technology within the body. The hybrid people this creates may make humans obsolete. Welcome to the nanotech revolution. Professor Alan Goldstein has no intention of putting the brakes on his research just yet. As a bioengineer, he spends most of his time designing new materials for the medical devices of the future, by working out how to bind biological substances like proteins, DNA and enzymes to inanimate substances such as glass, plastic and metal. "I'm gung-ho about it," he says. "I want to cure diseases."
