Sex Robots & Vegan Meat

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Provocative, funny and brilliantly reported, join Jenny Kleeman as she meets the strange people who are creating our future and changing what it means to be human today.

‘A tour of the lurid fringes of the tech world The Times



‘Entertaining . . .

like Louis Theroux channelling Margaret Atwood New Statesman


What if we could have babies without having to bear children, eat meat without killing animals, have the perfect sexual relationship without compromise or choose the time of our painless death?

To find out, Jenny Kleeman has interviewed a sex robot, eaten a priceless lab-grown chicken nugget, watched foetuses growing in plastic bags and attended members-only meetings where people learn how to kill themselves.

Many of the people Kleeman has met say they are finding solutions to problems that have always defined and constricted humankind. But what truly motivates them? What kind of person devotes their life to building a death machine? What kind of customer is desperate to buy an artificially intelligent sex doll and why? Who is campaigning against these advances, and how are they trying to stop them? And what about the many unintended consequences such inventions will inevitably unleash?

Sex Robots & Vegan Meat is not science fiction. Its not about what might happen one day its about what is happening right now, and who is making it happen.

In the end, it asks a simple question: are we about to change what it means to be human . . .

for ever?
