Are you about to become a cyborg, or will you be crushed by robot overlords? Robopocalypse author Daniel Wilson is in the studio to talk about his new novel, Amped, which is about future humans with cybernetic implants. We also talk about what kinds of high tech implants you would like to have installed based on your feedback in our poll.
