I wonder how does everybody feel about augmentations, things such installed on/in a human(not steroids) to make them better at certain things(i.e. Running, Strength) Should humans use them? I say yes.

I thought you were talking about breast implants for a second there, haha. Which, I would actually say no to, but... yeah. I don't think I'd mind getting something "installed" on me, if it wasn't too invasive.

Personally taste really. I'm not going to hold it against anyone if they wish to even replace their entire body with mechanical parts. Especially if it makes it possible for them to go from being disabled to being a fully healthy human being.

Personally I would take any device that would allow me to live a full healthy life, and also anything that isn't too invasive in how it effects me. I wouldn't mind getting my limbs replaced with effective mechanical ones for instances(assume they could get ones that looked and felt like real human limbs but were just more powerful).

I would not however do something like have a chip installed in my brain to connect me to the internet, you can leave me out of that shit. Anything that allows anyone to monitor any part of my life is absolutely %100 out of the question. Of course that is in the future but I think that is what you are looking for here.

I would say yes if it is voluntary, not like altering the genes of embryos when they don't have a say in the way they are born

I would feel a bit odd around people with mechanical limbs, particularly those who wanted them over their real arms, but I'm not technically against it, it really depends on how the procedure is done. If it's done using nanites it might be possible to integrate it into working arms to strengthen them, rather than hack off the old ones and put new ones on. Age does not determine merit; you're body is more complex than any super computer or robot on this planet can ever be, you're nerves and sensory organs are better than anything that will come off an assembly line. Except in the case that said organs don't function (blind eyes, broken spines, etc. etc.)

I don't think so.

Not a case of "I was in a car crash and lost my arm, now I need a mechanical one" but rather; I want to be faster, stronger, better.

We have the technology.

But do we want cyborgs? I don't.

No, because steroids make it so you can workout longer without getting tired. What I'm talking about is putting something in you that instantly makes you stronger or faster or able to see better. What I'm talking about is, umm, If you ever played or seen any game in the Deus Ex Series(Deus Ex, Deus Ex - Invisible War), or read the book 'Enough is Enough'(What the author is going against) than you would know what I was talking about
