MIT’s engineers created a prototype of a microrobotic worm for easier brain surgeries
Aimed to help neurosurgeons perform less invasive biomedical procedures, a tiny robotic worm can zigzag its way through a model brain. Yoonho Kim and his colleague Xuanhe Zhao at Massachusetts Institute of Technology created the robot out of a soft polymer with embedded ferromagnetic microparticles, meaning it can be navigated using a magnet. The device is coated in a self-lubricating material and is less 0.6 millimetres in diameter.

"The Intelligence Supernova: Essays on Cybernetic Transhumanism, the Simulation Singularity & the Syntellect Emergence" by Alex M. Vikoulov, foreword by Antonin Tuynman, PhD is a must read for futurists, philosophers and transhumanist thinkers. Release Date: September 1, 2019; Publisher: Ecstadelic Media Group; Format: Kindle eBook.
We are now on a collision course with the most significant event in the entire history of our planet comparable in criticality only to the emergence of life itself. This "Novacene" event would mark the technological maturity of human-machine civilization, as we are to inevitably transcend our biology, and even more importantly, we are to transcend our dimensionality by achieving the so-called Simulation Singularity.
Most of us are familiar with the concept of the Technological Singularity. While those terms can be often used interchangeably, the 'Intelligence Supernova' adds a slightly different connotation -- it means the Omega Point of Homo sapiens -- the convergent point of exponential technologies and on a civilizational scale, progressively morphing into one Global Mind, i.e. a phase transition of humanity termed in the book 'The Syntellect Emergence'. This convergent point would signify no less than Self-Transcendence, in other words, engineered godhood.
Within the next few decades, we’ll witness accelerating changes so profound and swift that the linear progression of human history would eventuate as the Intelligence Supernova of astronomical significance, the "implosion" of all knowledge of man and "transcension" outside the dimensionality of "human" universe.
