Smithsonian’s “Bionic Man” TV Special and Exhibit Feature the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart

Oct 20, 2013 - A human-like bionic man envisioned in popular culture may be years away, but there’s one manmade organ that already is saving lives: the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart.

Scientists and roboticists researched and used the most advanced technology they could find to build the 2013 version of the bionic man, complete with prosthetic body parts and manmade organs.
