Dr Bertolt Meyer - a young researcher from Zurich University - built 'Rex', short for 'robotic exoskeleton'.
The 7-foot creation has been created with state-of-the-art prosthetic limbs and a functional heart-lung system which within that includes pulsating arteries, a bionic spleen to clean his blood and an artificial pancreas to keep his blood sugar leveled.
Human aspects integrated in Rex means the robot - which is said to have cost around $1 million (£630,000) - can listen and respond to spoken dialogue by using a speech generator.
Meyer himself has a prosthetic arm.
The documentary How to Build a Bionic Man will air on Channel 4 on February 7 at 9pm.
The bionic man itself can be seen at the Science Museum's 'Who Am I?' gallery in London from February 7 until March 11.
