Human beings will be VERY different in just over three decades time - when we’ll be gold-skinned, immortal cyborgs.
That’s the startling prediction of one futurologist - who says that technology will cause us to ‘evolve’ into a new species over the next few decades.
Our mastery of technology will also lead to ‘engineered’ pets which talk - a litlte like living Furbies.
Human beings will effectively become immortal as we gain the ability to upload our minds into computers - and download them into new robot bodies.
The predictions - based on academic research - were made by futurologist Dr Ian Pearson for the Big Bang Science Fair 2016.
Dr Pearson says that by 2050, people will be able to connect their brains directly to computers and, ‘could move their mind into an improved android body.
‘This would allow people to have multiple existences and identities, or to carry on living long after their biological death.’
‘What’s exciting is that it is no longer nature which is forcing changes on us but our own breakthroughs.’
