Level Up Human
About This Show
What should humans evolve next? Ideas for human upgrades from science, mother nature and YOU!
By Simon Watt, Rachel Wheeley and the Wellcome Trust.
Simon Watt and friends ask questions like, do we need two nostrils? Why can't we fly? and, would it benefit humans to steal attributes from creatures from the animal kingdom?
Combining gene splicing and trans-humanism, medical advancement, surgical enhancement, whimsy and wonder, Level Up Human takes a long hard look at the human race and tries to figure out how to make it better.
By Simon Watt and Rachel Wheeley with support from the Wellcome Trust.
