Humai is aiming to make it possible to freeze someone's brain and resurrect them again within 30 years.
The idea of freezing someone's remains upon death in the hope that they can be brought back to life in the future is nothing new, but now Los-Angeles startup company Humai, which is aiming to freeze only the brain, believes that it will be able to resurrect someone within as little as 30 years by transferring their consciousness in to an artificial body so that they can effectively live forever.
"We'll first collect extensive data on our members for years prior to their death via various apps we're developing," said founder Josh Bocanegra. "After death we'll freeze the brain using cryonics technology. When the technology is fully developed we'll implant the brain into an artificial body."
Whether this can all be achieved within the space of three decades however remains to be seen.
"The artificial body functions will be controlled with your thoughts by measuring brain waves," said Bocanegra. "As the brain ages we'll use nanotechnology to repair and improve cells."
