Bionic Me

From ingenious medical advancements to industrial breakthroughs, explore how technology can modify humans, and redefine our capabilities.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

Control a computer using the power of your mind, race against a Paralympian, and see how a bionic eye works in Bionic Me.

This Scitech-built exhibition explores the inventive and ingenious medical and industrial breakthroughs that have helped enhance the human experience and contains both hands-on and full-body experiences.

Visitors to Bionic Me will be encouraged to think about the potential of clever technology and how it can change people’s experiences and interactions with the world around them.

Test your own limits as you run, sense, and navigate. Explore how technology can enhance your abilities and integrate with your body. Imagine your future: what choices will you make and how might they change your life?

Climb inside an exoskeleton and see what you can do with enhanced strength, fly a virtual jetpack, or explore aerodynamics in the wind tunnel. This exhibition is packed with full-body experiences your visitors will love! There is also a great mix of interactive and problem solving experiences focussing on technology that helps us to overcome our natural limits.

Experience the possibilities in Bionic Me!
