Supermanification aims to transform and perfect the human body by developing and using sophisticated technology. We see an important shift from solving medical issues to improving a healthy person into a ‘superhuman’. The line between the restoration of bodily functions and enhanced performance are blurring. The focus is no longer only on solving existing problems but also on perfecting healthy bodies. With the use of advanced medical technology, such as implementing cyborg-like components, we are reaching beyond the boundaries of the human body. Ethical questions arise around this subject: how far will we go to become the best version of ourselves? What role does technology play and what are the boundaries in the combination with humanity?
