A new start-up wants to give you eternal life. At least, a version of you.
By scanning your digital footprints on Facebook, Twitter and all other social media, Eterni.me claims it can generate a virtual you. Started by a group of MIT grads, they envision family and friends communicating with your digital avatar.

More than 3,000 people have signed up so far. The team hasn't even begun developing the technology yet, but plans to have a beta version up and running by 2015.
