From brains to eyes, hands to legs and deep down to the internal organs; implants, prosthesis and rehabilitation are entering a new era to potentially create a new type of human being - The Bionic Man. Mankind has long tried to find remedies to genetic or accidental disabilities with the use of artificial limbs. In the episode, we look at the some of the most interesting robotic limbs and see how robotics can also be used for rehabilitation to help patients recover faster. We also see how both the heart and retina could be replaced by artificial devices. But what are the ethics of mixing technology with biology?
