You may have heard of the Six Million Dollar Man, an American television series about a former astronaut with bionic implants working for the OSI government office. Now in the 21st century the first real bionic man is in the house.

His name isn’t Steve Austin and he didn’t really cost six million dollars. His name is Rex and he is worth around 600,000 euros. Steve Austin was a pop culture icon of the 1970’s. Rex has synthetic blood and artificial organs. Science fiction and technology have found each other.

Rex had raised eyebrows and troubled feelings at the same time. His presence is disturbing.

A documentary is presented by Bertolt Meyer, a Swiss psychologist who has a bionic hand himself.

Incidentally, the first bionic eye is coming to the U.S. market.
