This week we were thrown with the concept of cyberculture. We are in one way or another link with the cyber world. Through the devices we use and different apps that allows us access to one another. We are allowed or given access to explore through this cyberspace which has been made understandable for human senses. Examples are the written language it is in, pictures and sound (Dyson, 1994).
During the tutorial we were introduced with a video called Kara. From the video one question pops up to mind. Is she human? Technology has evolved since the invention of the telegraph. Once stories of robots cleaning your home is actually a reality. Reality can now be virtual. The human race has evolve and is now charging into the exploration of cybernetics but are we ready for this? People are excited to see a world with robots but at the same time can we even accept them? Games and TV shows has introduce the possibility of living with a robots but can we deal with it?
We still have problems with race and religion. People say they don’t have a problem. Yet we see the news with #blacklivesmatter and #muslimlivesmatter. What if robots are like Kara and they can think and feel. Do we actually understand what it means to be alive?
