I think this will be the more common route that uploads will take, instead of living in a virtual world they would rather remain separate, independent and mobile and interact with reality. It still assumes that an upload will retain all cognitive and emotional abilities but as an electronic brain instead of a biological brain. The scenario here is that the uploaded brain is housed in a robot/android type shell and becomes fully mobile and with additional optional sensors. The term I like is Robosapien. There are several major factors to consider. 1. No pain, no disease. 2. No need to eat or drink, and no need to breathe. 3. No aging. 4. Frequent backups insure against fatal accidents, giving unlimited lifespans. 5. Battery packs would probably need frequent recharging. There are several questions that arise – 1. What type of shell would you choose? A humanoid type, or an arachnid with 8 legs and 8 eyes, or something else? Note that such high-tech shells are unlikely to be cheap. 2. How would you live? Housing, work, hobbies. 3. Goals, ambitions, travel. 4. Identity. How would uploads register a unique identity? Fingerprints, retinal scans, DNA tests would have no meaning. 5. Would war have any meaning if uploads can simply revert to backups? Is murder possible? The list is endless; please use your imagination.
