"Head Transplant System" Not Quite Ready for the Real World

You will be forgiven if you start watching this video and think it to be a comedy skit. Or a movie trailer. I started reading what I considered to be a serious tech article and then the video came up, and I had to read more carefully to make sure it's not a parody -especially when they went into doing a face transplant to go along with the brain transplant. BrainBridge is a medical engineering startup, and the "head transplant system" you see here is just a concept. It has a long way to go before it can actually be used, or even built. The real hurdle is that we do not know how to successfully attach brains to bodies.

One of the most significant challenges in realizing this ambitious concept is the current inability to fully repair nerve and spinal cord damage. BrainBridge acknowledges this hurdle and is actively recruiting top specialists in various fields to collaborate on finding solutions.

It's no surprise that BrainBridge is actively recruiting investors as well. At least they got a talented graphics company to put the concept video together. It would make a decent movie trailer, but that idea has already been done a few times.  -via Damn Interesting
