It isn't enough that we have computers in our phones, our cars, our refrigerators, our coffee makers. Now we have them attached to our faces -- or elsewhere on our bodies. 

How and why is this happening? How can a machine be so appealing that we wouldn't mind attaching it to ourselves?  How wil these devices like Google Glass and the Oculus Rift change the way we see the world?

And how will they change the way others see us?

And beyond that, how will they fundamentally change who and what we are?

Tune in and explore.
