- Some experts believe that the human body is outdated and not suited to modern life and the possibility of living further out in the solar system
- A prototype robot has been created that is controlled by rat brain cells
- Another expert believes that we could one day transport frozen brains to another planet and then defrost them when we arrive many years later
Scientists are investigating whether or not we could one day live as brains without bodies, far away on another planet.
A number of experts believe that the Professor Kevin Warwick, a cybernetics expert at the University of Reading, believes that the focus on upgrading the body is missing the point and that we should do away with it altogether.
‘The brain is the critical thing,’ he told Vice Magazine’s Becky Ferreira.
‘Even on Earth, the physical body that we’ve got is perhaps not suitable anymore. We could do with something better.’
