In today's technology-filled world, it is impossible for our children to stay off the internet (unless you live out in the middle of nowhere or you keep your kid in a bunker, in which case this debate isn't for you). Because of this, many parents have taken it upon themselves to monitor their child's online activity -- from what cat video they Googled at 11PM last night to who they're texting right now.I'm here to ask what your opinion is. Should parents crack down on kids' online activity, or should they be more lenient and trustworthy?Here are some possible topics of discussion: device ownership, child age, child maturity, parental familiarity with technology, mistrust, parent-child relationships, internet safety talks, etc.
there is an up coming issue that needs debating, the topic of Designer Babies, should we or should we not. Designer babies are genetically modified babies that undergo biotechnology to change the genes in a living embryo.so the question is, should we do this and if so. WHY? or should we not and if so WHY?
Right now, Prosthetic technology provides a functional feature for those who have lost any bodily function and requires artificial device that replaces any missing body parts, seeking to provide convenience to the user.

In that case, where do we draw the line?

NBC has recently predicted that in 2017, all of America will be tagged with microchips. They will be implanted to help identify individuals immediately. With the RFID Microchip they can track the movement of the people that are implanted. They can also control the money and food of the people. It is also reported to be possible to even kill the people that don’t obey. It can potentially replace less effective forms of identification such as ID cards which can be forged, yet a feeling of insecurity rises in some of us. Should this be imposed on us?
What is lacking with virtual reality? Why has it not yet caught on, even though the technology has existed for over a decade? What apps/games/features would you want VR to have in order for it to be worth purchasing? I am thinking about developing VR apps as the market is pretty fresh, but I need constructive criticism.However, to make it a debate I will also pose this question:Are the top games and apps that were not originally made for VR better than those that were (but are less famous)?
