Level Up Human

illustration of a monkey becoming a man through the stages of evolution

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? 

Why not write a to-do list for humanity? Find out about what the future holds for humans. 

Hosted by biologist and broadcaster Simon Watt and comedian Rachel Wheeley.
