A TERMINALLY ill British scientist dying from a muscle wasting disease says  he has fully completed his transition into  the world’s first full Cyborg – called  Peter 2.0

Dr Peter Scott-Morgan, 61, decided to challenge what it meant to be human when he refused to accept his fate following a diagnosis of motor neurone disease in 2017.

He said he wanted to push the boundaries of what science can achieve so decided to extend his life and become fully robotic.

And this week the world-renowned roboticist returned to his home in Torquay, Devon, after 24 days in intensive care, with all medical procedures now complete and able to begin his re-booted life.

But the evolution of his machine-like existence doesn’t end there – and he joked he had more upgrades scheduled than Microsoft.

The roboticist has had to undergo a series of incredibly complex and risky operations during his journey. This has included developing a remarkably life-like avatar of his face before he lost  any muscle control.

The avatar is designed to respond using artificially intelligent body language and he has also explored eye-tracking technology to enable him to control multiple computers using only his eyes.

The final procedure in his robot transition saw him successfully trade his voice for potentially decades of life. He underwent a laryngectomy, meaning his voicebox was removed and he lost his physical voice.

But in doing so, he will have avoided the added danger of saliva potentially entering his lungs due to his condition.

Dr Scott-Morgan had previously labelled this treatment as the end of Peter 1.0 and the start of Peter 2.0. He confirmed the news on social media this week alongside a picture and a message that “Peter 2.0 is now online”.

He wrote: “Just home from 24 days in intensive care. All medical procedures now complete and a huge success. My mini-ventilator keeping me breathing is a lot quieter than Darth Vader’s.

“All speech is synthetic but at last sounds like me again. Long research road ahead but in great spirits.”

It was the first message Peter had sent out to his legion of followers since he signed off last month with what he described as his “last post as Peter 1.0”. He confirmed that on October 10 he would trade his voice for “potentially decades of life” as he completed the  final medical procedure for his transition in the same month he was told that statistically he would be dead.

He added: “I’m not dying, I’m transforming. Oh, how I love science.”

Dr Scott-Morgan, of Torquay, Devon, has throughout his career been granted “unparalleled confidential access” to government organisations, banks and major corporations.

He has been using this scientific expertise to work with cutting-edge technology experts to become Peter 2.0.

Speaking of his transition on his website, he said: “When I say ‘Peter 2.0’, I mean ‘a cyborg’. And when I say ‘Cyborg’, I don’t just mean any old cyborg, you understand, but by far the most advanced human cybernetic organism ever created in 13.8 billion years.

“I’m scheduled to become the world’s very first full Cyborg. Almost everything about me is going to be irreversibly changed – body and brain.

“It goes without saying that all my physical interaction with the world will become robotic. And naturally, my existing five senses are going to be enhanced. But far more importantly, part of my brain, and all of my external persona, will soon be electronic –  totally synthetic.” “From then on, I’ll be part hardware/part wetware, part digital/part analogue.
