Did you watch "The Six Million Dollar Man" with Lee Majors?

February 6, 2013

I did. And I had the toys when I was little too!

Bionic "Rex", the world's first "bionic man" is in the news and I thought that it's interesting news.

Meet Rex: the $1m bionic man with working heart, set of lungs and human face

The $1M man

"It cost six million dollars to create bionic superhero Steve Austin.
Scientists however have built a 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."

Meet Rex, the real bionic man (and he didn't cost $6million!): Scientists create body using artificial limbs and organs
