Finally: a Robotic Tail that Responds to Your Every Move

Japanese artist Ryota Kuwakubo has created the mother of all human mods: SiliFulin, a robotic tail that “react[s] to your movements using a series of servo motors to power the segments.” According to CrunchGear, the tail is meant to recall the tail that every human has in the womb which they ultimately absorb before birth. Which brings up one key question: Does the SiliFulin count as transhumanism, or bioconservatism?
