For the first time, a bionic man named Rex, which is short form for Robotic Exoskeleton has been displayed at Britain's Science Museum. The humanoid has a human face as well as artificial organs and synthetic blood and real life limbs.
The USD one million man is supposed to make a lot of advances in medicine. The creation hopes to make a lot of changes in prosthetic technology, as well as an artificial pancreas, kidney, spleen and trachea and a functional blood circulatory system in human beings.
Betroit Meyer, a social psychologist said, “The Bionic man was put together in order to showcase the current state of bionic and medical technology. We wanted to find out how far we have come in replicating certain organs and replacing certain limbs. In the future, more and more technology would be applicable to humans, that we see here today. For example, today if your kidney fails, you need a kidney transplant. In the very near future, we might have an artificial implantable kidney that we can implant and replace a failing kidney.”
Meyer was himself born without a left hand and has a bionic hand replacement. The bionic man display would be open to public on Thursday. This technique can be hailed as a futuristic and progressive technique.
