NEW YORK, October 3, 2013 -- Smithsonian Channel is the exclusive U.S. television home to chronicle the behind-the-scenes story of the world’s first real Bionic Man – a 6-foot-tall robot built entirely from bionic body parts and implantable synthetic organs – complete with a functioning circulatory system.  The result of billions of dollars of research and featuring components borrowed from some of the world's leading laboratories, THE INCREDIBLE BIONIC MAN shows how far we’ve come in efforts to simulate the human body. A new one-hour documentary about the ambitious project premieres on Smithsonian Channel on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. 

Smithsonian Channel is bringing the Bionic Man to the United States to go on public display, unveiling it at New York Comic Con October 10-13 and subsequently at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. through the fall.
