The Bionic Person

In this episode Adah Parris is joined by Oliver Armitage from Cambridge Bio-Augmentation Systems (CBAS) to discuss the cutting edge tech being developed for amputees – from skeletal implants to advanced robotics. Oliver explains why he’s on a mission to create an 'open standard' connection to the body, and what's needed to help the industry advance faster. Plus, we meet James Young aka ‘Metal Gear Man’ – a committed techie using his own body as a canvas for bionic research.
