A story produced by an Australian television crew and featuring professor Joel Garreau of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law was featured on "Hungry Beast."

In the video, “How to Build the Perfect Soldier,” Garreau talks about technologies that sound futuristic, such as human enhancement, but that are being explored by the military in order to create the perfect soldier. “We can’t wait for these technologies to be just dumped in our laps,” said Garreau, the ASU Lincoln Professor of Law, Culture and Values. “We have to start figuring out what we should do, not what we can do. It’s a conversation we should all be having because this is coming at us real fast.”
