EctoLife: An actual company or a spoof?
"The word's first artificial womb facility"
I am undecided but leaning toward “spoof.”
There is no doubt that the horrible concept of “farming” humans is in existence (see Igor Chudov’s post, for example)—but regardless of the ambition, the technology is not there. So, as of this second, I believe that the people behind this promo campaign are either a Theranos operation trying to milk investors for money, or an “entertainment” product launch of some sort, albeit possibly inspired by DARPA, to kill two birds with one stone—as, from the perspective of DARPA, it doesn’t hurt to start priming people for the horrible concept.
A few lazy searches seem to lead to Hashem Al-Ghaili, so I am thinking that most likely, it is his film promo and not an actual artificial womb facility to freak out about.
