A British scientist dying from a muscle wasting disease says his transition to the first full CYBORG is complete – called & # 39; Peter 2.0 & # 39 ;.
Peter Scott-Morgan, 61, decides to challenge what it means to be human when he refuses to accept his fate following a diagnosis of motor neurone disease in 2017.
He says he wants to he pushed the boundaries of what science could achieve so decided to extend his life and become completely robotic.
And this week the world-renowned roboticist returned to his home in Torquay, Devon, after 24 days of intensive care, complete with all medical procedures and able to start his recovery -booting life.
But the evolution of his machine- like existence didn't end there ̵1; and he joked that more upgrades were scheduled than Microsoft.

A British scientist, pictured, dying from a muscle-wasting disease says his transition to the first full CYBORG is complete – called & # 39; Peter 2.0 & # 39;
The world-famous roboticist had to undergo a series of incredibly complicated and dangerous operations on his journey.
This involved developing a superb living avatar before any of the muscles in his face were used to create expressions.
The avatar was designed to respond using artificial body language.
Dr Scott-Morgan is also exploring the use of eye tracking technology to enable him to control multiple computers using only his eyes.
And the final procedure in h was the robot transition that saw him successfully trade his voice for potential decades of life.
She underwent a laryngectomy, meaning she lost her physical voice, but in doing so, she was able to avoid the increased risk of saliva that could enter her lungs, due to her condition.
Dr Scott-Morgan previously labeled this treatment at the end of Peter 1.0 and the beginning of Peter 2.0.
He confirmed the news on social media this week with a picture and a message that & # 39; Peter 2.0 is now online. & # 39;
He wrote: & # 39; At home only from 24 days in Intensive Care.
& # 39; All medical procedures are complete and a great success. My mini-fan that keeps me breathing is a LOT more quiet than Darth Vader. I'm sorry. Great way to research but to great spirits. & # 39;
This is Peter's first message to his legion of followers since he signed last month what he described as his & # 39; last post as Peter 1.0. & # 39;
HOW DOES HE SEE CYBORG?
Roboticist Peter Scott-Morgan went through many changes in his journey
Peter Scott -Morgan underwent a complex journey to extend his life in the face of motor neurone disease.
- He built a life-like avatar so he could express emotions after consuming his facial muscles.
- A top wheelchair allows him to move quickly, stand and stay.
- Laser eye surgery provided. he had a perfect vision of using a computer.
- Eye tracking technology will enable him to operate computers.
- A feeding tube was inserted directly into his stomach.
- In a similar fashion, a catheter and colostomy bag would take care of her bathroom needs.  Most recently, the expert removed his larynx to stop saliva entering his lungs.
- A voice box – with his pre-recorded speech – would speak for him.
Dr Scott-Morgan shared the photo in the caption: & # 39; CORE OF CHARLIE (my Cyborg Harness And Robotic Locked- In Exoskeleton), the brilliant engineer of the Permobil F5 Corpus VS. As a top-end wheelchair, it stands, lies flat, rises, fast. Soon, with a lot of added robotic hi-tech, it will be boldly going where no wheelchair has ever been! & # 39;
He confirmed that on October 10 he will exchange his voice for & # 39; potential decades of life 'as he completed the final medical procedure for his transfer in the same month told him statistically that he was dead.
He said: & # 39; I am not dying, I am changing. Oh, how I love science. & # 39;
Dr Scott-Morgan, of Torquay, Devon, has throughout his career been given & # 39; unrivaled confidential access' to governmental organizations, banks and major corporations.
He used this science. expertise to work with cutting edge technology experts to become Peter 2.0.
Speaking of his move to his website, he said: & # 39; When I say & # 39; Peter 2.0 & # 39 ;, I mean & # 39; a Cyborg '.
& # 39; And when I say "Cyborg", I don't mean any old cyborg, you understand, but by far the most advanced human cybernetic organism created in 13.8 billion years. & # 39;
& # 39; I am set to become the world's first Cyborg. & # 39;
& # 39; Almost everything about me will be immutable – body and brain. & # 39;
& # 39; This is not to say that all my physical contact with the world would be robotic. And naturally, my existing five senses will be enhanced. But more importantly, part of my brain, and all of my external personality, is about to become electronic – completely synthetic. & # 39;
& # 39; Since then, I will be part hardware / part wetware, part digital / part analogue. & # 39;

& # 39; And it will not stop there; I have more development upgrades than Microsoft. Mine is not just a version change. It is a metamorphosis. & # 39;
The scientist is also exploring eye-tracking technology, to enable him to control many computers using only his eyes.
Among other things, this meant he could control his own electronic bed and a hoist to help move him.
This eye tracking technology, meant that he could no longer wear contact lenses, and so he underwent laser eye surgery to enable him to have perfect vision 70cm- away from his computer screen.
The scientist also has an amazing top wheelchair, which he said on Twitter was a & # 39; brilliantly engineer & # 39; and allowed him to stand up, lie and walk fast.
This week he announced the final procedure in his tr ansition on a robot in which he exchanged his voice for potential decades of life
He underwent further pioneering surgery in what he believed to be the first operation of its kind, to insert a feed tube directly into his stomach, a catheter directly into his bladder and a colostomy bag directly into his colon.
These procedures will help her to deal with any potential problems with feeding and sleeping, helping her maintain her independence.
However, he emphasized online that this was an incredible one. dangerous procedure for a person with MND.
Despite the dangers of surgery and being ultimately ill, Dr Scott-Morgan says he is not interested in how to survive his condition, he aims to & # 39; thrive. & # 39;
He remains positive and often, humorously, sees his situation as an opportunity to truly embrace his scientific capabilities.

In fact, the Scott-Morgan Foundation he founded with his wife Francis, aims to use artificial intelligence, robotics and other high-technology systems to change the lives of those who are 'restricted by age, illness, health, disability, or other physical or mental impairment. & # 39;
On his website Dr Scott-Morgan states that this vision is far from a mere dream: & # 39; We are within a distance of change – everything. I'm not dying – I'm changing! & # 39;
& # 39; It's terminal illness like you've never seen it before. And as far as I'm concerned, take it. & # 39;
& # 39; MND didn't even start to kneel down on me. And even after I lock In, I'll still be standing. & # 39;
The Scott-Morgan Foundation where Peter, right, founded with his wife Francis, left, seeks to use artificial intelligence, robotics and other high-technology systems to transform the lives of those 'restricted by age, illness, health, disability, or other physical or mental loss. & # 39;  & # 39; Thanks HiTech – I'll talk to n. I will convey Emotion and Personality. And I reach out and touch the people I love. And I'm not the only one. & # 39;
& # 39; Over time, more and more MNDs, with severe disabilities, old age, with only a desire to be released from their physical straight-jackets, will choose to stand by me. & # 39;
& # 39; And we will all stand up. And we will stand proud. And we will stand helpless. And we will remain standing, year after year after year & # 39;
& # 39; Because we simply refused to "Stay Living". We choose to prosper. & # 39;
WHAT IS THE REAL WAY FOR MOTOR (ALS)?
The NHS describes motor neurone disease (MND) as: & # 39; An unusual condition that affects the brain and nerves. This causes the vulnerability to deteriorate over time. & # 39;
Vulnerability is caused by damage to motor neurons, upper motor neurons that travel from the brain down to the spinal cord, and lowers motor neurons that spread to the face, throat and limbs.
It was first discovered in 1865 by a French neurologist, Jean-Martin Charcot, so it's not why MND is sometimes known as Charcot disease.
In the UK, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is defined as Motor Neurone Disease, while in the US, ALS is defined as a specific subset of MND, which is defined as a group of neurological diseases.
However, according to Oxford University Hospitals: & # 39; Almost 90 percent of patients with MND have a mixed ALS form of the disease, so the terms MND and ALS are commonly used to say same thing. & # 39;
Anxiety in the ankle or leg, which may manifest itself in travel or difficulty climbing stairs, and a weakness in the ability to place objects. difficulty in swallowing food.
Cramp muscle or twitches are also a symptom, such as weight loss due to leg and arm muscles that grow thinner over time.
MND is difficult to diagnose in its early stages because some conditions can cause similar symptoms. Neither test was used to confirm its existence.
However, the disease is usually diagnosed through a process of exclusion, in which diseases presenting with similar ALS symptoms are excluded.
The NHS claims that MND is a & # 39; which is especially affecting older people. However, it is confined to adults that can be affected by any age.
The NHS says that, as of now, 'it's still not known why & # 39; disease occurs. The ALS Association says MND is happening around the world & # 39; with no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries and can affect anyone & # 39;
It is stated that war veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS and men are 20 percent more likely to get it.
There is no cure for MND and the disease is lethal, yet the disease is progressing at a different pace in patients.
People with MND are expected to live two to five years after symptoms first appear, although 10 percent of sufferers live at least 10 years.
Occupational therapy, physiotherapy and drugs such as riluzole are used to enable the effects of the disease.

Lou Gehrig's disease
Also known as ALS and Charcot disease, MND is often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease.
Lou Gehrig was a well-known baseball player, playing for the New York Yankees between 1923 and 1939.
He was famous for his strength and was nicknamed & # 39; The Iron Horse & # 39 ;.
His strength, fame and fame surpassed the sport of baseball and the condition adopted the sportsman's name.
He died two years after his diagnosis.
