My brother got a titanium mesh to keep his brains from doing the same. It sounds cool, but it doesn't even set off metal detectors, so he can't do the cool Matrix scene and he doesn't get to carry a card saying to let him and his robot parts through security. Doesn't stop him from telling people he has a terrilium-carbonic alloy in his brain, though.

A while back the daughter of one of my coworkers wound up needing a pacemaker (she's doing well, but it was a bit stressful for her mother, who I worked with.) Talking about it, I noted that it's sad that they don't use nuclear batteries in pacemakers anymore (yes, this is a thing that was done) as had they put one of those in her, she could have claimed to be atomic powered.
Apparently, the thought amused the woman in question.
"Cyborg" is not the same thing as bionics, biorobotics, or androids; it applies to an organism that has restored function or enhanced abilities due to the integration of some artificial component or technology that relies on some sort of feedback.
