I agree, transhuman projects need more funding, but the establishment of the
NSF Engineering Center for
Sensorimotor Neural Engineering does lend it some credibility and bring it
away from the fringes. It's a first big step - it's going to take a
phenomenal amount of corporate and government funding, but this is one way
for the movement to build in the time being.
