According to futurist Ray Kurzweil, we will all be able to live like Highlanders in about 20 years.
Kurzweil predicts that with the rapid growth of nanotechnology we will never die. The renowned scientist believes that we will soon have the technology necessary to halt and reverse aging.
"I and many other scientists now believe that in around 20 years we will have the means to reprogram our bodies' stone-age software so we can halt, then reverse, ageing. Then nanotechnology will let us live for ever," wrote Kurzweil.
"Ultimately, nanobots will replace blood cells and do their work thousands of times more effectively."
If Kurzweil is right, nanobots will improve human physiology in just about every way. His hypothesis states that technology will make us all athletes and geniuses. Not only will we live forever, but we will also live much better lives.
"Within 25 years we will be able to do an Olympic sprint for 15 minutes without taking a breath, or go scuba-diving for four hours without oxygen," Kuzweil continued.
"Nanotechnology will extend our mental capacities to such an extent we will be able to write books within minutes."
Imagine, in just 20 odd years you too could end up the next Olympic gold sprinter all because you opted for those bionic legs. Plus, you'll never die so you can win multiple gold medals if you want. Maybe you can win one for each category?
