In many ways, the future is already arriving.
NPR's Elise Hu is the first "future correspondent," exploring how technology is changing what it means to be human. Her new video series, Future You, begins by exploring the most powerful computer we know of -- the human brain.
Every month Elise will take us into researchers’ labs and into people’s lives to test-drive emerging technologies and consider the possible implications of that science for people in the year 2050. Episodes will focus on ways that technology could equip the human body with "superpowers" like telepathy, super strength and long life.
