Lifenaut lets you store your personality as a ‘digital archive’.
The LifeNaut website offers a free service allowing users to upload pictures, videos, and documents about your life to create a computer based avatar which people can then interact with. Information in the ‘mind-file’ can be tagged, geo-mapped and put on timelines to detail the places you’ve been and the people you’ve met.
LifeNaut also offer a ‘Bio File’, where your own cells can be sent to the company, who store them at -190° C for an indefinite period of time. The idea is that one day you can be re-created from your mind-file and your own cells.
While there’s no charge for either service, a US$399 ‘suggested donation’ is requested for the cell storage.
Earlier this month a Russian entrepreneur announced he was signing up billionaires for a program with the goal of allowing people to life indefinitely as a hologram-like avatar, by 2045.
