Russian research project offers ’immortality’ to billionaires - by transplanting their brains into robot bodies

By Rob Waugh | DailyMail.co.uk




A Russian entrepreneur who heads a hi-tech research project called ’Avatar’ has contacted billionaires to offer them immortality.

Itskov claims he will personally oversee their immortality process, in exchange for an undisclosed fee.

Itskov, a media entrepreneur, claims to have hired 30 scientists to reach this goal - and aims to transplant a human brain into a robot body within 10 years.

’You have the ability to finance the extension of your own life up to immortality. Our civilization has come very close to the creation of such technologies: it’s not a science fiction fantasy. It is in your power to make sure that this goal will be achieved in your lifetime,’ says Itskov in a letter delivered to billionaires listed in Forbes magazine.

He has contacted a list of billionaires with a proposal for funding his quest for immortality - which Itskov refers to as ’cybernetic immortality’ and the ’artificial body’.

The initiative is opening its San Francisco office this summer, and will be launching a social media project connecting scientists around the world.


Itskov, a 31-year-old media entrepreneur, says that he aims to transplant a human brain into a robot body within 10 years. He says his technology will be of interest at first to the ’disabled and close to dying’



’The 2045 team is working towards creating an international research center where leading scientists will be engaged in research and development in the fields of anthropomorphic robotics, living systems modeling and brain and consciousness modeling with the goal of transferring one’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier and achieving cybernetic immortality,’ says Itskov’s official site.




’Such research has the potential to free you, as well as the majority of all people on our planet, from disease, old age and even death.’

’For anyone interested, but skeptical, I am ready to prove the viability of the concept of cybernetic immortality by arranging an expert discussion with a team of the world’s leading scientist working in this field.
’I will also be willing to coordinate your personal immortality project entirely free of charge for the sake of speeding up the development of these technologies,’
