Summary
As scientific discoveries continue, will we one day produce a flawless human specimen? We already have breast implants from body tissue and facial surgery using organic materials to make us look younger or correct deficiencies resulting from diseases or accidents. Paraplegic patients learn how to walk assisted by a robot and prosthesis that react like a healthy arm are already available. The dream of human perfection may soon become a reality?
