Brains 2005 on Flickr.
2005 sketchbook drawing (with water damage). I was reminded of this by this story posted on twitter by @netw3rk (frankly that story is more ridiculous than my drawing. Brain transplants within 7 years? Right.) These are human brains in cases that can control robot bodies off site. The advantage of this is that the robot bodies don’t contain the most sensitive portion of the human body. Signal delay means that the robot could only stay local, but the brain can always be stuck in a suitcase for travel. Provided, of course, you can get it through customs.
