How To Build A Bionic Man

With huge advances in modern technology, are we now nearing a point where mankind can out-engineer nature? And if we can, should we? Dr. Bertolt Meyer attempts the ultimate engineering challenge: to build an artificial being using only the prosthetic or bio-engineered equivalent of each major part of the human body. Just how close can we get to an entirely manmade human?
