Rohit Talwar on Extreme Longevity

Living Longer

This post is part of the Back to the Futurist Series. Using the brilliant ‘Power of Making‘ exhibition as inspiration for our conversation Rohit delved into a mind-boggling array of possibilities that may very well define the world of tomorrow.

In this video Rohit discusses how science is blowing open opportunities for artificial limbs, human augmentation, and living for a very long time. He addresses the dilemas of extreme longevity, such as the practicalities of an ageing population and how we might bridge the gap between a 150 year old and his ten year old great-great-great-great-great grandson.
