At one mysterious booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center this week, the reaction of passers-by has been unlike anywhere else.
Murmurs of ‘I don’t like this,’ and ‘no, this is too much for me,’ could be heard as CES attendees crowded around the Psychasec setup, greeted by what appeared to be lifeless human forms on display in large glass cases.
During a brief tour through the booth, exhibitors dressed in all white sold the idea of immortality, through a plan to upload human consciousness to ‘human sleeves’ of whatever design you desire – before concluding around the display of ‘Joel,’ a fresh ‘sleeve’ in a vacuum sealed bag, breathing and eating through a tube.
While the display has been jarring to some, there is more to it than initially meets the eye.
