Netflix Fools Public With Eerie, Realistic-Looking ‘Lab-Grown Humans’ At CES ‘18
By Yoon Sann Wong, 11 Jan 2018
Past the booths by Samsung and Sony, you’ll find a queer and hair-raising display of “lab-grown bodies” at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
The sight, comprising two mannequins displayed at the front and a vacuum-packed “human” just around the corner, is Netflix’s latest publicity stunt to promote its new sci-fi series Altered Carbon.
This pseudo ‘Psychasec’ exhibition booth, populated with well-dressed attendants in white, cater to the public’s queries about this disturbing yet intriguing concept of immortality through “human sleeves.”
Simply put, the idea involves transferring one’s consciousness into an interchangeable “human body” as a means of prolonging one’s life. Death, thus, is no longer an issue. Attendants equipped with tablets noted down interested parties’ email addresses for a 2 February update.
Check out video footages and pictures of the convincing booth tours, as well as the trailer for Altered Carbon, below.
