    Goodbye, the world’s first cyborg

      Peter Scott Morgan, the world’s first human cyborg, died this summer at the age of 64.   A “skeleton” made of black metal left the staggeringly thin body.

For the machine, however, these are only temporary silences. Power up, enter commands, and they still operate as usual.
