Resistance is Futile.

Assimilate, or Die.


Not only will we be immortal, but we'll be superhuman, too:
"Ultimately, nanobots will replace blood cells and do their work thousands of times more effectively. Within 25 years we will be able to do an Olympic sprint for 15 minutes without taking a breath, or go scuba-diving for four hours without oxygen… Nanotechnology will extend our mental capacities to such an extent we will be able to write books within minutes."
If that doesn't sound wild enough, it only gets more fanciful from there. Play us out, Kurzweil:
"If we want to go into virtual-reality mode, nanobots will shut down brain signals and take us wherever we want to go. Virtual sex will become commonplace. And in our daily lives, hologram like figures will pop in our brain to explain what is happening. So we can look forward to a world where humans become cyborgs, with artificial limbs and organs."

And if Jeane Claude Van Damme is still around, he might feel justified in making a crappy movie.

Or Not.
