Robocop is here. Not sure what prompted the idea but this is definitely a progress for the space industry if not replacing the labor force.
Thirty years later, the idea is no longer just science fiction. Scientists, among them the creators of “Rex” – the world’s most
complete bionic man, unveiled in London this week – believe they can now replicate about two-thirds of the human body....
Rex, billed as the pinnacle of robotics achievement to date, will meet his public from tomorrow at the Science Museum in London. Dubbed the
Million-Dollar Man (that’s how much he cost to make), he consists of a prosthetic face, hips, knees, feet and hands, all of which are commercially
available. Other off-the-shelf items include an artificial retina, cochlea and heart.
