Russian Researchers Build Creepy Android to Make Humans “Immortal”

by Conner Flynn

A Team of Russian researchers are thinking big, as in science fiction premise big, building a conceptual mind-transfer android. The ultimate goal is to help mankind achieve immortality by using humanoid robots and interstellar space travel to get away from this dangerous and overcrowded blue orb we call Earth.

The technology that they need to transfer our thoughts and souls to a robot doesn’t quite exist yet, but they have already managed to build at least one prototype capable of basic movements. What we have here is a torso of an android that will one day house a a computer capable of acting as a human proxy. Basically, the contents of your mind would be uploaded into this creepy android. The scariest thing about this android are the blinking lights that you can see behind it’s eyes.

The researchers say that it will all be possible by 2045. So, who will be first?

    Transhumanity is a very real prospect in this era of expotential growth and potential technological singularity. The prospect of digitized conciousness facinates me, and I have a novel published that concerns this exact scenario.

    I don’t really care how human-like it looks. It’s what it’s capable of that matters.
    This one doesn’t even seem to be able to stand up, so forget it.

    This site is alot worse than it was years ago.
