You may get a glimpse at humanity’s future tomorrow.
The world’s first entirely bionic man will walk the D.C. streets Friday at 10 a.m.. He’ll walk near the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, putting his implantable synthetic organs and entirely bionic body parts to use for the first time ever.
This scene straight out of a science fiction film will, in fact, be used as a part of a new documentary set to air Sunday on the Smithsonian Channel, delving deeper into the story of this frighteningly human-like robot.
The Incredible Bionic Man (as he is being called) is worth billions of dollars in research.
So, if you happen upon a bionic man while jogging on the Mall tomorrow, don’t fear. It is not the beginning of some sort of robot-driven apocalypse – it just might be the next step in human evolution.
