In the mountains above the Mojave Desert, a group of amateur bio-hackers has received worldwide attention for a series of experiments to upgrade their own bodies. They call it "grinding."

The Grinders are on the fringe of society, medicine and maybe even the law. But their beliefs about the future and potential of the human body could be a foundation of the coming century.

In this episode of REAL FUTURE, Alexis Madrigal goes to meet two Grinders—Gabriel and Jeff—and see their experiments up close. But he comes away with something else: a magnet implant in his finger, which the Grinders say will give him an exciting new superpower.
