    Emerald Robinson: The bionic man made his U.

    S. debut at New York Comic Con. Made by Shadow Robot Company in the UK; the man features realistic human body parts from 17 different manufacturers. Hes one tall and handsome guy standing 6.

    5 feet tall.

    He has 60-70% the functionality of a real person with a heart that pumps 200 gallons of blood per minute, a microchip that acts like the human eye, lungs and all and can even stand up and sit down. But hes no real boy yet with of course no brain, digestive system, liver or skin. And this is actually a little creepy. Hes modeled after a social psychologist at the University of Zurich who was born without a lower left arm and wears a bionic prosthesis. He said it was a shock to see a bionic mans face that so closely resembled his own.
