A real-world bionic man, created by a U.K. television company, a robotics company and a researcher from Zurich University, will be featured on British television and appear at London’s Science Museum. Zurich researcher Dr. Bertolt Meyer, an amputee who uses the iLimb Ultra prosthetic arm, was asked to build himself in bionic form. He agreed, saying, "My aim was to show that prostheses can, instead of conveying a sense of loss, pity, and awkwardness, convey a sense of 'wow' and amazement."
