One of Lee’s many other projects is a vibrating implant which is placed at the base of the penis, which he calls the Lovetron9000. “I have broken many prototypes and it is trickier than it looks, engineering-wise,” he says. In the next ten years, Lee thinks, it might be possible to take part in a “MMO Orgy [Massively Multiplayer Online Orgy]” – a group of people with spinal implants which stimulate the users’ genital nerves linked together over the internet. It’s still only an idea, but Lee sees great commercial promise in this area: “I’ve probably had the most emails from people wanting to get the spinal implant,” he says. “Once you have cyborg sex,” he predicts, “you will never want to return to normal sex.” Cyborg sex may sound unappealing now, but attitudes change fast. “It can flip very quickly,” says Kevin Warwick. “Take something like laser eye surgery. About 15 years ago people were saying ‘Don’t go blasting my eyes out’ and now they’re saying ‘Don’t bother with contact lenses’.”

Over the River: The Tar Pits and the Landscape
Photograph by Garth Lenz
A tar mine edges up to a boreal forest and the MacKay River in northern Alberta, Canada. Photographer Garth Lenz speaks of the “insane scale” of the industrialization he photographs in the province, which has undergone dramatic changes since oil sands development began. Lenz uses aerial photography to capture the immensity of the altered landscape.
Garth Lenz’s aerial photographs of landscapes transformed by energy production were recently featured on our photography blog, Proof.

Ataye Eligidagne, 20, dons the largest lip disc in the world. The hardened clay disc is 59.5 cm in circumference and 19.5 cm in diameter. This month, an Australian film crew, led by cinematographer Abrahem Joffe, stumbled upon Ataye Eligidagne in the remote valleys of southern Ethiopia.

MISSING IN CORPORATE MEDIA
Completely absent from corporate media this week was any mention of the significant spike in radioactive contamination of groundwater at Fukushima following Typhoon Phanfone. According to The Japan Times, readings were ten times higher than the previous week. Of course, this info is ignored by those who support and profit from nuclear power.
