  1. This is not only possible and likely, but it is already being discussed at various scientific events on a wide range of topics – cyborgization (just about implants) and robotics, Artificial Intelligence, etc.�

    Inequality in society arises naturally and quickly, simply even on the basis of the “friend-foe” mechanism. We are like that – they are not like that. In science, this phenomenon is studied as stigmatization, stereotyping, etc. But inequality can arise and exist in many different ways, and also very much depends on “who has power in their hands”, i.e. who will determine the mass social attitude to “others”.�

    For example, people with implants may be considered “fake” and therefore be denied a number of privileges (to participate in some activity, first of all, in sports). Or vice versa, if the government has a different trend: people without implants will be considered “non-pumped”, old-fashioned and weak. And these two types of inequality can change very quickly from one to the other, or they can exist for a long time. The future will tell.

  2. It seems to me that we still have no equality, if we speak in substance. But I am sure that the “superficial” view of the public (for your question) will remain. That is, a person with artificial hands will be the same as today in a cultural society – to cause respect, and not just compassion. I think that some pieces of hardware are the same gadgets. After all, we do not define a person as better or worse than anyone if they have a cool watch, phone, or other junk that is unnecessary in fatal situations.
