NCSoft announced today that they’d be immortalising video gamers by launching a so-called “Immortality Drive”, a time capsule containing the digitised DNA of selected Tabula Rasa players – along with copies of their in-game characters.

To make the project slightly less geeky, the capsule will also contain some of “humanity’s greatest achievements”. NCSoft are inviting everyone to put their thoughts forward on what to include, so if you want to get involved with the discussion, take a trip to the Operation Immortality homepage and start having your say.

I’m not quite sure what to think about this… it’s certainly a unique idea but somehow it smacks of “gimmick” to me :-?
