Now, let's visit "the Ghost in the Shell" idea: Human brain, artificial body.
Let's ignore the cause of such disfigurements; imagine we are capable of giving them "the
ghost in the shell" bodies.
(This may be a little extreme, though.)
The "ghost in the shell" idea means a fully functional, artificial body and a human brain; then, we cannot quite develop fully functional, artificial sensory organs.
Robocop is another idea.
Both attempts will be extremely far-fetched; can we achieve them at all?
Right now? Who knows?. I doubt it.
However, I'm reasonably confident that some country has already produced at least one human clone. I think the way of the future may be in manipulating DNA and the probably secret revival of eugenics.. Something along the lines of the practice found in the Sci Fi film 'Gattaca' . People will pay literally anything to live longer, with better health and natural abilities.
Gattaca is a 1997 American science fiction film written and directed by Andrew Niccol. It stars Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, with Jude Law, Loren Dean, Ernest Borgnine, Gore Vidal, and Alan Arkin appearing in supporting roles. The film presents a biopunk vision of a future society driven by eugenics where potential children are conceived through genetic selection to ensure they possess the best hereditary traits of their parents. The film centers on Vincent Freeman, played by Hawke, who was conceived outside the eugenics program and struggles to overcome genetic discrimination to realize his dream of going into space.
The film draws on concerns over reproductive technologies which facilitate eugenics, and the possible consequences of such technological developments for society. It also explores the idea of destiny and the ways in which it can and does govern lives. Characters in Gattaca continually battle both with society and with themselves to find their place in the world and who they are destined to be according to their genes.
