It seems this is planned to happen around 2050, if I remember right (a saw a thread about it recently). Downloading your mind into a computer is simply genius. It's horrible, but genius.
Once the mind is into a less damageable brain ( human brain go to coma when it receives an impact of only 3 grams), two things happen. They will live past 1 000 years (aluminium decays in 1 000 years, I am sure it will take even more time for other metals - or plastics - to decay). But, also, they will be able to do things with their bodies (which will be robotically engineered), like making it bulletproof, or install a battery in it (so that they can shoot electricity, just like Darth Vader's master in Star Wars), or install electromagnetic internal antennas or broadcasters (so that they can detect you thoughts or influence them, just like Giskar in Asimov's novels), or install a jet pack so they can fly, etc. They will not only almost never die, they will be "supermen" too.
All that is crazy.
