After spending $6 million to create bionic superhero Steve Austin, scientists have now built a real bionic 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.
Built for a Channel 4 documentary exploring how far technology has developed, Rex raises ethical dilemmas.
Research on advanced prosthetics and artificial organs means scientists could improve on body parts.
