Yeah that would suck.

If something I say sounds like trolling/being stupid/offensive, please forgive me. I'm bad with people.

Well, I wouldn't mind walking around for a few days with Tetley teafolk running around my face if it earned me a bit of dosh. ;)

It wouldn't be so bad if it was only temporary. An easy way to make fifty quid.

Hell nah, Why do that when we can genetically engineer the human race and create the ultimate breed of humans?

How does anybody predict that cosmetic surgery will change in the future?

 

Becuase they may not like the nose that their parents picked for them?

I think on-body screens will be developed before the ability to create a perfect race.

Probably.

 

A 'perfect race' is very subjective and it can be as good as perfect in the eyes of the majority, but not in the eyes of everybody. For example, a perfect race in the eyes of some may be intelligent and all look similar to this:

. On the other hand, they may be of average intelligence (by today's standards) and be more diverse in their appearance. Some people may define a perfect race the current, 'natural' one).

Discovered an article on Wired a while ago on this topic...

 

http://www.wired.com...utureofbreasts/

 

"All Natural: Why Breasts Are the Key to the Future of Regenerative Medicine"

 

Lol, anyway nice article about modern techniques to regrow breasts. Soon implants will be a thing of the past, and everyone can have perfect sized breasts! All men should rejoice I think haha. Of course this is only the beginning, plastic surgery is going to become less & less invasive, and because of that more popular. Imagine if you could take a pill, or have injections in certain parts of your body to change your shape. I wonder how/if they'll be able to change your bone structure. 

Don't you think that would be boring if every girl had perfect features?

I'm already bored with the popculture idol. Some time around the jessica simpson and brittany speares days I hit a point where I couldn't tell these injection molded celebrities apart. It's getting worse now because now even some of the boy bands and what not not only do the individuals of the band all look alike to me, but they have a startling number of common features with the girl stars.

 

Diversity is disappearing as our cultures homogenize and our social interactions move away from being people of substance into more of a surface image based culture based on appearances (appearing to be wealth, appearing to be smart, appearing to be careing; all those sought over actually being any of those things through effort) and thus there is less that is developed beneath the surface. And in that type of environment the only way to identify yourself as part of a group is... by looking the same and acting the same. Because individually and culturally there is no looking or developing beyond those factors.

 

You actually have to fall off the map into undergrounds before you find substance.


Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

I hate pop culture, it is all capatilised social engineering. And the great problem is that it engineers society in the wrong direction.

Yes, they certainly won't be made of ink. I've seen concept art of touchscreens integrated into hands, arms and other body parts. I think that in a couple of centuries time, we will be able to turn our entire body surface into a screen. Perhaps we can download tattoos from the internet or even just design them in our minds and have them appear virtually on our body, erasing them with our minds when we no longer want them.

I've thought a lot about ubiquitous computing, and neural nanobots, but this never occured to me. So cool.

I'm thinking of non-invasive cosmetic improvements. Without surgery for example.

For example, nosejobs, earjobs or whatever will be way simpler to be made, without time-consuming recovery periods or invasive scars.

 

We could be of the height/weight we want, and have the body posture we want.

i think stem cell procedure already has that. but disaster cna be much worse. one woman had a stem cell injection in her breast and butt at the same time. the stem cells in her butt grew in all the wrong directions. now, there is no way for correcting it by surgery because it is totally merged with the muscle cells or arteries. im not sure how it was explained specifically but surgery for her would be life threatening.

I know that you were referring to non-invasive surgery, but you can become, through (invasive) surgery, the height that you want through leg (length/short)ening. This procedure is very rarely carried out and is generally used to correct problems with leg lengths (e.g. one leg is abnormally long), but there have been a few known cases where adults with perfectly good legs have had leg lengthening to add a couple of inches to their height.

This is one of the more successful cases, as well as one of the biggest growths from such a procedure:

Apparently, 'social networking' is now catalysing growth of the cosmetic surgery industry.

This wouldn't surprise me, to be honest.
