Biotech revolution: Designerbabies & Superhumans?

CRISPR-Cas, a method by which DNA can be modified with unprecedented precision, it has turned science on its head. From the possibility of curing malaria to creating pigs as small as a chihuahua. With CRISPR we can remove or add genes easier than ever before. Man becomes manageable. A great revolutionary technique. A breakthrough.

What are the possibilities? Are we on our way to the era of the super-human? Will we only "produce" smart, healthy and slim babies in 20 years? Should we want everything that is technically possible within these application areas?
