In the lecture we will discuss how digital technologies can enhance human capabilities. In human evolution tools for the mind and aids for perception have played a key role. The ability to read and write has completely transformed our ability to remember. Reading glasses, microscopes, and binoculars are examples that have chance what humans can visually perceive. With current technologies in physiological sensing (e.g. EEG, EMG, gaze) and rich interfaces for presentation (e.g. augmented reality, virtual reality, large screen displays) digital building blocks for augmenting and amplifying the human mind and perception have become available. The challenge is, how to create these new assistive and enhancing technologies in a way that they are easy to use and in the best case become a part of ourselves.
