Thaw out Lee Majors..

— 1:02 AM on February 29, 2000's time for another run of The Six-Million Dollar Man. Researchers revealed late last week that they can rebuild him, they have the technology:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Scientists said on Friday they have created a bionic chip that mixes human cells with layers of silicon, a device they hope to use in research and to treat disease.

The chip is a sandwich that traps a cell within three layers of silicon. The cell acts to complete an electrical circuit, and can be altered -- perhaps to add a new gene -- as part of the process.

The bionic chip may prove most useful in gene therapy, where delivery methods have been a rather difficult problem. (Oh, and thanks to Squirb for the link.)
