World's first complete "Bionic Man" makes debut

Posted: Updated:

He's known as "The Bionic Man," and he stopped by the Today show Tuesday.

He has more than a million sensors, 200 processors, 70 circuit boards, and 26 individual motors.

He's built completely from prosthetic parts, with blood pumping to his heart, bionic hands, artificial eyesight and an exoskeleton that allows him to walk.

It's being described as the wheelchair of the future, giving paralyzed people the ability to "walk". 

"And it has come so far this technology. So, I would have never imagined in my own lifetime to have something like this," says Social Psychologist Bertolt Meyer.

One thing the guy doesn't have, is a brain.

A special show about the bionic man project will air on the Smithsonian Channel on October 20th at 8 PM central time.
