Computer-controlled hands, auditory implants, retinal implants and optic advancements demonstrate how the new technology revolutionizes all systems in the human body. Part 2 introduces a new breed of robots that are smarter and more "human" than ever. Engineers are making new discoveries about the human brain to design artificial beings that can think and live on their own.
