Designer humans. Conceptual computer artwork of various human designs in test tubes, representing the designing of human characteristics by genetic engineering and cybernetics. Genetic engineering involves altering DNA, usually to improve health. Cybernetics involves adding machinery to the human body. Genetically modified (GM) plants and animals have been engineered, but human designing involves ethical and practical problems. The use of medical prosthetics is widespread.
