Are These the Faces Of Our Far-Future Descendents?
By Ray Villard

Some futurists caution that humans could likely become extinct
sooner than later in the face of a technological Armageddon. You
might call it an evolutionary phase transition when intelligent
machines, nanobots, or some other creation of man gone amok
wipes us all out.

Alternately, the seemingly inevitable marriage between man and
machine may go down less Draconian pathways branching into an
infinity of possibilities. For example, in Arthur C. Clarke=92s
3001: The Final Odyssey (1997) humans all shave their heads so
they can wear a computer-interface BrainCap, er, iCap? And then
there=92s Star Trek=92s infamous Borg =97 a collection of species that
have been turned into cybernetic organisms functioning as drones
in an interstellar hive.

While the future of mankind is unknowable, illustrator Nickolay
Lamm has produced a set of imaginative evolutionary changes to
the human face over the next 100,000 years.
