  1. 1. Presentation On Cyborg
  2. 2. Introduction• Cyborg, a compound word derived from cybernetics and organism.• It is a term coined by Manfred Clynes in 1960 to describe the need for mankind to artificially enhance biological functions.• A cyborg referred to a human being with bodily functions aided or controlled by technological devices.
  3. 3. History• The term “cyborg” was first coined by NASA scientists, Nathan Kline and Manfred Clynes in 1960.• They discussed the potential advantages of a machine/human hybrid that could operate in outer space.• Cyborgs are often depicted as “half-man half-machine” beings with robotic or bionic implants.

  5. 5. LATEST TECHNOLOGY• At present Cyborgology concentrates on the development of Conditional cyborgs.• That is living being with a mechanical body part which is replaced for the damaged or lost body part.
