In Virilio's The Art of the Motor, Stelios Arcadiou argues that he is "trying to extend the body's capabilities through technology" (109). Much like his technology invading the body proper from the outside, the devices attached to the net accomplish their invasion through visual and auditory channels. Expanding to connect our bodies through other senses moves closer to what Virilio calls the "Hyperactive Man (sic)" (119)--extended in a myriad of different ways.

On one level, then, it's fairly easy to look at the devices on the net as superflous--nothing more than the ability to watch through the neighbor's bedroom window. On another level, as mentioned earlier, it's about redefining ourselves and our relationship to our machines. The Web is a battleground for who and what we would become.
