Rex, the million-dollar #bionic man on display in London – an annotated graphic

Here, boy! Rex, the million-dollar, world’s most complete bionic man has been built using artificial limbs and organs borrowed from laboratories around the world. The idea is to show how technology is being used to replace missing or damaged parts of the human body.

Rex boasts close to 70 per cent of his body built from artificial devices, including eyes, ears, heart, pancreas, kidney, hands, arms, feet and ankles.

E&T news covered the story of bionic Rex going on show at the London Science Museum in more detail earlier this week.
