Meet Rex : the real bionic man

7 posts in this topic

After spending six million dollars to create bionic superhero Steve Austin, scientists have now built a real bionic man from artificial limbs for a sixth of the price.

Known as Rex - short for robotic exoskeleton - his 6ft frame is made up of an array of artificial limbs and organs from around the world, the Daily Mail reported.

Built for a Channel 4 documentary exploring how far technology has developed, Rex raises ethical dilemmas.

Research on advanced prosthetics and artificial organs means scientists could soon not only replace missing body parts, but improve on them.

That is cool but is is not bionic. Bionic in more human than machine. Rex is all machine.

I don't see a liver in there. I guess considering the million or so things it does we better keep the one we got in good order.
