Emerging technologies are evolving so that they create a nearly symbiotic experience with us, as users. On this merge, our minds and bodies suffer drastic transformations.
Mediated embodiment, which gives the name to this magazine, is the flagship of this tendency. Mediated embodiment is the technologically induced experience of adopting an artificial body. We can experience it when we adopt an avatar in virtual reality or a humanoid robot body, and we feel as if it was our own.
ME, the magazine selects the most fascinating and shocking news and advancements in Science and Technology related to mediated embodiment. In addition, the in-depth section brings you insights and reflections from the editors. We also welcome external contributions for our news and in-depth section.
