    A Russian billionaire has unveiled plans to make humans immortal by converting them into 'Terminator-style' cyborgs - a creature that's part human and part machine - within the next three decades.


    The so called 'Cyborg' will have no physical form, and exist in a network similar to the Internet and be able to travel at the speed of light all over the Earth, or even into the space.

    Itskov's first highly ambitious goal, called Avatar A, involves a person controlling a robotic human replica through a brain-machine interface (BMI), a technology that already exists.

    "Come with me if you want to live... forever." Should be his slogan.

    Honestly, I wouldn't want to. I'll keep my **** intact just the way it is. Unless I lose a limb in a tragic accident, then we can talk.

    So the future is going to be a Greg Egan novel. Will we lose our gender too? :)

    I'd argue that this is actually a rather crude way of gaining immortality.

    I don't know if it will be ready by 2045, but you could achieve immortality with nanotechnology (microscopic machines in your body that make sure you don't age).

    Or advanced bioengineering. Hypothetically cancer could give us the cure to stop aging.

    But hey, there's more than one way to skin a cat.

    Something like this might be possible eventually, but I think 2045 is pushing it.

    We were supposed to be like the Jetsons in 2005. Real life never moves as fast as science fiction.

    It never hurts to be ambitious.

    Unless of course you're the test subject.

    Marty McFly's flying car, instant Pizza, quick dry/magic fit clothes future is two years away. I've yet to see any of those things. :( So yeah. Sometimes things don't go according to schedule.

    That said, if by some miracle it did... I'd be about 54 or 55 by the time it becomes feasible.

    How do you explain the speed of cell phone/computer/tablet technology? By the time it took me to write this a new Galaxy was just invented and Sony just created a TV that outputs higher than 4k resolution

    Can you imagine the problems of this idea even if it was possible? Downloading our brain into a computer and loading ourselves onto multiple cyborgs from all over the world. You have to look at the basic problems we have with computers and the internet today, can you imagine a virus infecting our transmission and we turn into serial killers? And what if we multiply ourselves (pirating for example), you get jailed with your murderous clone?
