Immortally may be out of our reach, but tough phones arenâ€™t
A Russian entrepreneur called Dmitry Itskov has come up with an idea which is more in keeping with a sci-fi blockbuster than real life.
Itskov has reportedly been contacting billionaires and giving them the chance to become immortal, by having their brain placed into a robot body.
He aims, with 30 scientists, to achieve this goal within 10 years. The amount of money people will have to pay for this…procedure, has not been disclosed.
The letter to these billionaires apparently states, "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."
Well, if you're kicking yourself with disappointment right now because you're not a billionaire, fear not. We could provide you with a different type of immortality – sort of.
You have the ability to finance the extension of your mobile phone's life almost up to immortality!
By simply purchasing a tough mobile phone, you will see the life of your handset drastically extended. Whereas a standard mobile could break after being in contact with liquids or dropped on the pavement, a rugged mobile phone is likely to survive.
Many of them can also endure extreme temperatures and are dust resistant.
Do you dream of defying death? Well, tough mobile phones may not be immortal – but they're pretty much indestructible.
