Humans in 2100 could be timeless bionic hybrids with downloadable brains if they morph into Elon Musk-style “CYBORGS.”

PEOPLE in the next 100 years could be part-machine, part-carnal creatures with brain chips and bionic limbs and organs, in a vision of the “cyborgs” once described by Elon Musk.

Men and women born around 2100 could live in a world very different from ours as humans may be fully connected to the internet and networked with artificial intelligence.

Cell phones would no longer be needed – everything you do with your smartphone now is now done with a chip in your brain.

With just a thought, you could display a reply on Google, send a message via WhatsApp, or even pilot your personal drone to run errands for you.

Scientists and futurists have predicted that aging could be almost completely eliminated through a mix of treatments and bionics.

And some people may choose to have their limbs amputated and replaced with more powerful robotic prosthetics.

Futurist and transhumanist Zoltan Istvan, who ran for US President twice, described his vision of the future to The Sun Online – saying it’s imperative that humans merge with AI.

And he said people are already on their way to going to “body shops or supermarkets” to upgrade themselves soon.

Twitter boss Musk has previously described a world where humanity needs to become more integrated with technology to compete with AI.

Big tech companies are already working on “transhuman” technology — including Musk’s new Neuralink brain chip.

And speaking to The Sun Online, Istvan said he agrees with the billionaire on the dangers we face.

“Musk is absolutely right,” he said.

Istvan also said that “gene editing” – like designer babies or splicing your genes to improve your health – is one of the most interesting developments on the horizon.

He called on the government to cut regulatory bureaucracy to allow for more innovation that could “save and improve millions of lives.”

“People might say they’re never going to put anything in their bodies, but just wait for their neighbor to do it and that neighbor will then become a more desirable employee,” Istvan told The Sun Online.

“We live in a competitive world, and transhuman technology makes us more competitive, so we will embrace the upgrades to succeed.”

We have the right and moral obligation to use science and technology to eliminate suffering and the biological functions that cause our death.

But while we may become tech-enabled superhumans, the great threat that looms over us is AI.

Istvan told The Sun Online, “I think an AI that’s as intelligent as humans is going to be the biggest advance, and that’s probably going to happen in 25 years or less.”

“But the bigger problem then is how much smarter this AI is getting than we are.

“I suspect that within a few years of its launch it will already be a thousand times smarter than us, and eventually by 2100 it will be a million times smarter.

“We must try to merge with this AI before it gets too smart, or the humans will be left behind entirely, and the planet will belong to the AI, not us.”

He warned that one of the greatest dangers of this technological advancement is creating a dichotomy society – in which the rich become “transhuman gods” and the poor are left behind.

“That’s the greatest danger of transhumanism, that we create a dystopia,” he told The Sun Online.

“For this reason, I advocate that governments look closely at how to ensure that transhuman technology is available to all.”

Istvan called for further discussions on the merging of technology and humans as it will be a “unique transformative experience” for humanity.

“Great caution must be exercised, but fear not. People suffer a lot and then they die,” he told The Sun Online.

“We have the right and moral obligation to use science and technology to eliminate suffering and the biological functions that cause our death.”

He added: “We just have to do this in a way that doesn’t alienate people from one another. I think everyone will eventually agree that people using technology to live far better and healthier lives is a good thing.”

Tech mogul Musk announced earlier this month that his Neuralink brain chip will soon be ready for human trials.

He hopes the brain chip will enable the blind to see and the paralyzed to walk.

The chip was designed to transmit neural signals to devices such as a computer or a telephone

He dreams of one day people being able to control computer functions simply with their minds via Neuralink.

Footage released by the company has already seen monkeys playing video games with their minds.

Musk previously described that humans are “already cyborgs” because we are so tightly connected to our technology.

“The phone is almost like an extension of yourself. If you forget your phone, it’s like a missing link,” Elon said.

The billionaire warned that if we don’t catch up, “we’ll be far, far surpassed in every way.”

Other technologies being developed include a brain interface plan originally funded by Facebook.

It would also allow you to control devices with your mind – being able to just “think” your text messages.

The company was developed in the mysterious building 8, but the company stopped the project in 2021.

Facebook is instead focusing on an experimental wrist device to control computers with your brain.

Meanwhile, biological aging expert Aubrey de Gray predicted that in the next 100 years, humanity could have nearly eradicated the aging process.

“I would say there’s a 50/50 chance that within 20 years we’ve brought aging under significant control,” he said The guard.

“In 100 years, we have an 80% or 90% chance of reaching that goal.

“There will still be aspects of aging that we cannot control – different types of cellular and molecular damage – but we will be able to stay well within a comfort zone where that damage does not pose significant risks. “
