Meet Rex. Rex is a terrifying (yet somehow optimistic) vision of the future. Rex is a humanoid robot, as close as we’ve come to a bionic man—a composite of all the advances medical engineers have made in creating functional artificial human organs.
“Rex has a heart that beats with the help of a battery,” says Discover Magazine , “Rex’s fist-sized dialysis unit works like a real kidney, and his mock spleen can filter infections from his ‘blood.
