Haberlandt is a vending machine food crops. At the same time biorector for growing a superfood -Arthospira platensis microalgae-and automated avant-cuisine machine. An array cyborg. Mechatronic ecosystem where life and technological systems coexist. A sharp but open system with inputs and outputs typical of an entity that depends ona chemical-energy exchange for their persistence. The machine produces algae as the ultimate goal but needs to be recharged with a minimum contribution of nutrients, being able to reduce this cycle of exchange of seaweed to human consumption (output) and human urine of rejection (input).

Will technomorphization – the reorganization of the organic based on the intelligent machine model – become the dominant process of our age? Has evolution entered a technological scientific phase in which humans no longer develop in natural ways, in which the human body instead adapts itself to the parameters of a technological era? In this book, fourteen internationally acclaimed authors give their views on this blurring of borders and the fusion of the biological with the technological. It offers ideas on angels and robots, viruses and mad cows, a world where machines are anthromorphized and humans technomorphized. If the glare of our monitors is all that illuminates us, is it time to build a museum for the sun?
