Your infected or burnt skin can be replaced as scientists are making a way to craft a new electronic skin to replace the synthetic skin.
A beating, functional heart is being reproduced and created. Researchers were able to produce a mouse heart. Right now, the heart is not capable of fully pumping blood, so the process will continue being researched.
We all know about prosthetic hands. However, researchers are now looking into false hands that can even sense touch.
It is hard to learn walking with a prosthetic leg, this is why, scientists are developing a leg that patients can use with thought, rather than pure physical exertion.

We have seen monocles, bifocals, glass eyes but what about artificial eyes? Experts have developed two artificial retinas and have tested them on animals with success. The chips in the eyes sense images, convert them to signals, and wake up the brain to see.
The fingers being developed are ones that have a USB jack to be connected into a computer and store their functions. They look totally like a real one until you take them out and connect them!
