I don't think it's moral nor is it ethical to be performing this type of practice. I'd rather not think about Drone Warfare. I am fine with my body.

Our brain is the most advanced technology.

The world would be crowded if we recieved immortality. It would have many benefits but living forever doesnt really interest me.

I think technology is slowly leading up to the idea of cybernetics and the like. Though personally, I think things like pace makers are already an example of technology and the body fusing. Technology recently has begun to skyrocket in its advances, so the idea of that which has been noted isn't that impossible in theory...But it may take time. As for morals and the like? There will always be at least one person or group of people who feel a given subject is morally incorrect and a problem. There may be many, even...But there will also always be many who want to go that extra mile in advancement.

In my personal opinion, I think everything in moderation. It could be an issue if the cybernetics and such were to backfire and cause a catastrophe, but...On the other hand, it would do a lot of good possibly as well, depending on the usage.

The human body is more advanced than all of our technology. Our brains are actually quantum computers. If we activate all of our dormant DNA we will become more powerful than any man made technology. We will become like Dr. Manhattan.

I'm all for organ and limb replacement, however I feel that we will never have any type of technology that could interface directly with the brain, which would be useful for so many reasons.
Mainly this is an ethics issue, noone will ever want to have their brain experimented on to develop this technology, hence I would guess that it will be a long time, if ever, that this technology is perfected (for humans anyway, I believe they did do this with a monkey once).

This is something that I have considered, I am ready for the neural chips; the idea of becoming a cyborg may mean that we will need to discard what it is for us to be human (I'm working on what it is that makes humans unique...). When we talk about modification I look forward to turning genes on and off, but again still need to find out what it is that makes us human. I don't know if I would be willing to give that up just yet, there are two things that are preventing me from a full on conversion:

Don't want to turn into this.
..


and of course the one that will stop the conversion

Honestly, I think it's going to happen. There will be people opposing it and it may even be frowned upon when it actually happens, but people will learn to accept the technology eventually. Issues like these are just a part of life and humanity has thrived because of our desire to overcome weakness and survive.

When I trained in China we went to visit some Shaolin monks and this one was RIPPED! He never benched or used a gym in his life and yet his muscles were insane. Technology doesn't get you results because the body is a natural thing.

I wouldn't mind a liver replacement.

We've been using tech to prolong and improve life for several decades, in small ways, things like pacemakers. Now we have toys than react to the human brain. I think we should embrace technology.

Augmentations like in Deus Ex would be pretty cool, allowing you to bring a nearly dead person back to life.

The number of centenarians will be increasing dramatically in the coming decades, so maintenance of the human body will take precedence over improving. Unless we're using those terms synonymously here. Transhumanism might move forward if we can get past the initial uproar of ethics, but if we're talking about cybernetic implants then I don't think we should succumb to that just yet, especially when considering recent feats in biology like stem cell research and genetics. Personally I don't mind mortality.
