    if it doesn’t make the Six-Million-Dollar-Man-Bionic-Sound it’ll never catch on

    Disturbingly reminiscent of a humanoid robot a friend of mine made. It didn’t simulate the functioning of the pancreas, but it was dressed in a clown suit, had a rubber face perpetually trapped in the “O” expression and a throbbing, rotating member. If you sat on its lap it would penetrate you, grip you tightly with its robotic arms, and scream while the head spun around.

    I declined to test its full functionality.

    Why does it have Eric Bana’s face?

    Does he fight sasquatch in this video?

    Not nearly as impressive as Sesame Street’s Six Dollar Man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrAFle0W228

    I don’t think that this is what Dr. Frank-N-Furter had in mind.

    That’s not bionic. That’s a robot. To be bionic it has to have a biological component

    This reminds me of a bit of short fiction I read somewhere on the net, which involved the theft of many high tech prosthetic devices, cochlear implant, artificial heart, etc, to build a complete person. Not sure where the brain came from.

  9. I wonder what the head prosthesis is used for…

    So this isn’t a research piece? It’s just sitting in a museum? That’s a darn shame.

    It would be so much more worthwhile to just donate it to the Mythbusters.

    Some bionic man – he can only go as far as his power cables allow, and trailing that massive pump under the chair. But contrast a tiny fruit fly is a model of elegant design, completely sell powering and guiding, and can reproduce. Hell, an amoeba is more impressive than this guy.
