How close is today’s technology to catching up with the human body? "The Incredible Bionic Man" chronicles a team of engineers on a quest to find out. They collect the most sophisticated prosthetic parts available and combine them into one single functioning body, complete with an artificial heart, microchip brain, synthetic lungs, kidneys and even a spleen. Their incredible bionic man reveals just how far science has come and demonstrates where this technology is headed, all the while posing the eternal question of what it means to be human.
