    In terms of sense terminology, it is possible to make use of Digital Technology to expand and modify the perception of humans’ environment. The approach to design Cybernetic Extensions to expand the senses of the Human Body is being analyzed throughout this article. Under the debates on the dialectical interaction between technology-body, species-environment, creation-biocreation and human-bonding, the concept of Prosthesis presented by Tomás Maldonado is proposed as the starting point for the Cybernetic Organs design. It is predicted that these Smart Prosthesis will be designed by using 3D printers, and the patient’s own cells, which will be created in Fab Labs laboratories. It will go from designing objects to designing the Human Body as an object.
