      Not at the moment. There are some pretty fancy prothestic limbs at the minute, but not truely bionic. They’re making them more effective any day and there are some people who think one day we’ll chose to replace limbs and things (like Deus Ex if you play it).

      Not yet, but we’re getting better and better at making robots that can mimic human behaviour.
