Transplant your Brain To A Robot? 10 Years To Wait
By Thomas Spychalski
Is the seventy or so years of the overall Human lifespan not enough time for you to do everything you want? Did you spend the first three decades sucking down ‘Doritos’ and now want a little extra time to redeem yourself?
Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov believes that the technology will be available for a human to transplant his brain into a robotic host in a decades time.
Itskov calls his project ‘Avatar’ after the hit film by James Cameron.
Itskov recently revealed more of his year long quest to a group of futurists at the conference for a group called Global Future 2045, where he outlined a way for Human beings to live forever.
“This is a new strategy for the future; for humanity.
It will have a perfect brain-machine interface to allow control and a human brain life support system so the brain can survive outside the body.”
But the Russians ambitions do not end there.
Itskov plans on creating a hologram version of the ‘brain suits’ sometime in the next thirty years or so, allowing Humans to walk through walls and move at the speed of light:
“Holograms give plenty of advantages. You can walk through walls, move at the speed of light.
Remember in “Star Wars”, Obi-Wan’s hologram?
That was pretty amazing.”
Star Wars references aside, Itskov realizes a huge strain this kind of project might put on science, but believes his electric dreams will one day bear fruit:
“I understand these are some very big challenges for scientists.
But I believe in something you call ‘The American Dream.’ If you put all your energy and time into something, you can make it a reality.”
If you think that this is just a bit far fetched I’d agree with you, but the US government doesn’t share your feelings as they have a similar project to place Human brains in a mechanical enclosure, aptly named (You guessed it) Avatar.
Someone should put James Cameron in one first as it was his idea.
