Dmitry Itskov has an interesting view of the future.

The Russian business mogul is on a mission to create cybernetic immortality and, according to Discovery, has gathered resources and a team to create brain-controlled "functional holographic human avatars" that will be up and running within the next 33 years.

If you happen to be a billionaire, he's asking for your help -- and he doesn't mean through Kickstarter.

Itskov founded the 2045 Initiative, a nonprofit that will, one day (hopefully far far away) will be the source of a population of holographic avatars (not unlike Tupac's return) that would be controlled wirelessly, of sorts.
