Field: Robotics
Broadcast: The bionic man, unveiled in the U.K, recently starred in his own documentary How to Build a Bionic Man.
Draw: While Rex is handsome, his purpose isn’t to act as a robot but to find out what scientists can create and possibly replace for someone who may be missing a limb, have internal problems or diseases like a failing heart. Saving (changing) lives is sexy.
Video: This Channel 4 clip is amazing and shows what Rex is capable of in advancing medical treatment.
