A team of engineers has assembled and completed what is being referred to as a “bionic man.” He is composed of a number of artificial organs that simulate a human body’s natural processes including blood circulation. He is able to walk and to breathe. He is said to have between sixty and seventy percent of the functions of a human.
He requires a walking machine to walk and sit down. It is the same type of machine used by people who have spinal injuries. His artificial blood also carried oxygen just like real blood. The parts are incredibly advanced, but not yet ready to be used in humans. He current lacks a few other parts
The Smithsonian Channel will be featuring a special documentary about him on October 20, which is titled “The Incredible Bionic Man.” The program will show how he was built. The parts that compose the synthetic man came from seventeen different manufactures around the world. Shadow Robot Co. oversaw the cutting edge project.
He will be coming to the United States for the first time this week at New York’s Comic Con. The bionic man will be appearing alongside Bertolt Meyer. Meyer is a 36-year-old social psychologist at the University of Zurich.
