Human beings 'could live to be 600 years old'

Technology has the capability of helping humans to live for up to 600 years, science buffs have been told.

Cybernetics expert Kevin Warwick, from Coventry told a gathering at Trinity College, Dublin that: “Living to 600 might become a reality in the near future.”

Professor Warwick (58) who was called Captain Cyborg after having a chip implanted to connect his nervous system to a computer, said technology could enhance people’s lives.

“We could be the first generation that medically removes the need for death,” he said.
