Bionics are cool

By Reggie Bush

Intro

Have you ever seen a guy with a Once I saw a guy with a bionic leg and I thought it was fake until I ask my mom is that real. She said it was real I was really freaked out.

What It Is or Does

This paragraph is about how they can make bionics. According to Emma Lloyd, The bionics were made in 1953. The bionics are by a person named, Jack. E. Steele.  One of the workers at a place called Aeronautics Devon House at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. I wonder how much they have upgraded them since then. IÕll bet a lot.

 

This paragraph is about what does the word bionic meaning.  According to National Geographic Bionics means bi as in life onics as in electronics.  It is when you make machines look like living stuff. I think that is really cool because it makes machines look like living stuff.

 

This paragraph is about what does the bionic eye do according to Julia Layton There are two kinds of bionic eyes.  One if you can't kind of see, and one if you're blind.  They have a little camera in your glasses.  It allows you to sense stuff with your tongue.  It is awesome. I thought it was pretty cool because if there is a blind person they get a bionic eye.

        

How it Works

This paragraph is about can you control bionic with your brain? According to Josh Fischman You can control bionics with your brain. There's a teacher who has a bionic arm.  All she does is think about what she is going to do with her arm.  Her brain sends signals that are picked by electric sensors that turn the motors that make the elbow bend.

This paragraph is about how do bionics work? According to Josh Fischman Why do you have to extent your arm and, twist your head to the left and, press a lever with your chin, and use a little body English to swing the limb out.

This paragraph is about how you can see with a bionic eye. According to Josh Fischman, there is this camera that comes on your tongue. It goes to your tongue to your brain. You can't see it, but you can sense it. IsnÕt that really really cool because itÕs like a snake.

 

 This paragraph is about do cats have bionics according to Garmeen foundation Oscar is a cat that recently got in an accident.  The owner was riding a harvester and it ran over both of the cat's legs while it was sleeping.  His two back legs were cut off.  The cat would be a good choice to choose bionics.   I think it was pretty cool that the cat survived but I also think it was pretty sad that the cat lost those two back-to-back legs.

Brief Summary:

The robot arm! Several kids cried.  You remember huh. Make it do something silly!" one girl says. Silly? Remember how I can shake your hand?" Kitts says, extending her arm and rotating her wrist. A boy reaches out, hesitantly, to touch her fingers. What he brushes against is flesh-colored plastic, fingers curved slightly inward. Underneath are three motors, a metal frame, and a network of sophisticated electronics. The assembly is topped by a white plastic cup midway up Kitts's biceps, encircling a stump that is almost all that remains from the arm she lost in a car accident in 2006. This is a paragraph about a women how lost her arm and she is a teacher and she's teaching about her bionic arm that the kids like

 

 

Brief Summary:

SA Today has an article about how Robotic devices are helping the paralyzed. Professor Eamon Doherty and some of his graduate students at Fairleigh Dickinson University are testing robotic arms and legs for people who are paralyzed and don't have use of their own arms and legs. Using radio sensors to pick up minute radio electronic signals from nerve cells, the robotic arms and legs can move via the operator's own nervous system electronic signals. Those who were once paralyzed are now able to feed themselves, paint, and other fantastic achievements. Only simple commands can be made right now, but perhaps someday these robotic arms and legs may be made to perform like real ones and move solely on commands from the brain!

What we are trying to do is take real-time images from a camera and convert them into tiny electrical pulses that would jump-start the otherwise blind eye and allow patients to see," said Professor Mark Humayun, from the University of Southern California.

Brief Summary:

It tells about what it is, what it invented, and other bionic stuff that's not medical. It had some videos.  It has other links. This article is about two twin babies that they are stuck together and one of the babies have half a body and the other has a normal body. One baby is a girl and the other is a boy. They are both alive. They both have hearts and brains! The girl I think is going get a bionic body so she can feel how it fells to have a normal body. They need support to help them stay alive.
