This is one of the better visuals I have seen for what reading cyberpunk makes me feel. It is the page for Retina by Violet Suk and Martin Koch. The short film is weird and beautiful in its own way. One of the more interesting hypotheses I have heard is that when body modifications become available electively, that it will be the urban tribalists that are the first adopters. These are people that already have their skin etched and metal inserted into their flesh for mere ornament. Imagine if that piece of metal somehow enhanced your intellect or gave you access to new resources and capabilities. So much the better.
