Episode 1 - Cyborgs, with Rin

Let's talk cyborgs Welcome to our first real episode!

In this episode we spoke with Rin Räuber, a real life cyborg! What makes one a cyborg you might ask? Well, that's up for debate, but Rin has two magnets in her hands (one in the fingertip of her ring finger and the other on the side of her palm) and two RFID chips in her hands as well. Not only do they make for awesome party tricks, but she has also used her implanted technology to turn on her computer and open a safe full of candy. Take a listen and hear how you too can become a cyborg, or maybe just learn a little but about this growing and incredibly interesting tech community.
