On August 1, Manege was hosted a lecture by co-founder of Motorika Vasily Khlebnikov -- The Bright Cyberfuture.
Today, cybernetic beings are no longer science fiction, but reality. Humans project themselves into technology, continually modifying and improving it. Cyborgs are people who have been able to find freedom thanks to gadgets. The mission of the team at Motorika is to help people without arms be able to use modern, functional prostheses and become cyber-people. Motorika has set an ambitious goal for itself -- remove the concept of “disabled people” from future discourse all around the world.
At the lecture at Manege, Vasily Khlebnikov was discussed the community of cyber-people in Russia: what their goals are, what they are capable of doing, and how they are creating the cyber-future today.
Vasily Khlebnikov is the co-founder and director of development at Motorika, working on technology that lies on the border between medicine and robotics.
The lecture is part of a joint project between Manege and Motorika aimed at raising funds for those being helped by the Everyone Together foundation (Vse Vse Vmeste). For the entire run of the New Nature exhibition, Manege is holding a series of events from kids’ breakfasts to virtual tours. By participating, you are helping the foundation.
The mission of Everyone Together is to make high-tech rehabilitation available to all. By helping create and deliver prosthetic arms, the foundation gives people the ability to live a fuller life.
