Will 'bionic bodies' offer high-tech hope to the disabled?

PBS NewsHour has a new piece by Miles O'Brien on the latest in bionics, and how new technologies are extending physical and sensory capacities for people with serious disabilities— and changing lives.

The segment includes a visit with Segway inventor and bionics designer Dean Kamen (shown with Miles, at left); an exoskeleton test-drive at Berkeley Bionics; a chat with World Wide Mind
author Michael Chorost; and a run through Central Park with double amputee, fashion model, and former Gizmodo guest-editor Aimee Mullins.
