Level up Human Podcast

Take a shot at redesigning the human and pitch your ideas to the experts.

Scientists can already build robotic limbs, edit human genomes and create bionic eyes. What will be the next step as we upgrade our bodies? Wouldn’t it be great to have a zoom function for your eyes, change colour at will or type with your feet?

Taking charge of the situation is biologist and broadcaster, Simon Watt along with guest judge – comedian Rach Wheeley.

They’ll be considering pitches from two researchers from the world of science and technology as well as you – the audience – in pursuit of life-changing leaps for the next step of humanity.
