Before you read

  • artificial hand

  • true hand

What kind body parts can be replaced?

Artificial hand

Artificial joint

Reading P183 -1

Summary: The bionic parts of our body will take place in the future.



In the movie StarWar,who gets

a new artificial hands ?

Reading P183 -2

Summary:Machines are already doing the jobs of various human body part.



What is the main goal that engineers study bionic for?

They study bionic in order to design machines that are similar to living thing.

Reading P183 -3

Summary: The example of the pacemaker.



What is the purpose of the pacemaker?

It keep someone’s heart beating regularly.

Summary:The communication between the body and the machine.

Reading P183 -4
