E Looks Back 20 Years

Abstract:
What would happen if humans were to radically alter their genetic makeup? In a January/February 2001 cover story, E looked at the future possibility for genetically enhanced humans, who might someday have an additional two chromosomes to accommodate their extraordinary paid-for traits, dividing humans into two distinct species. The prediction then, "that by around 2010 parents will be able to genetically ensure their babies won't grow up to be fat or alcoholic," didn't pan out, but changes to everyday products on a smaller-than-microscopic scale—via nanotechnology—have much more immediate environmental implications.
