To be human is to be transhuman

Another interesting idea presented by Scott Klososky at last month's ASB Un-Plugged is the notion of transhumanism.  He shared a video which I'm posting below.  He asked the question:
When we augment ourselves enough with technology, will we even be human anymore?  Ray Kurzweil predicted that we will become hybrid.  The question is:  will this be possible for humanity? And even more to the point:  The question is not CAN technology replace a human activity, the question is WHY should it?
