The potential of connecting technology between live beings and manufactured items opens up a vista of exciting research. The topic of "bionics" explores the study of mechanical systems that function like living organisms or specific parts of living organisms: that seems straight from scenes of a science fiction tale. But, with each passing day, the connection between technology and biology seems to open up several interesting and sometimes a boon to mankind.

The field of bionics encompasses the construction and use of robotic arms that offer relief to the maimed, electrodes reroute nerves to achieve specific pathways, tissue engineering, cochlear implants, artificial hearts to bionic eyes to name a few. Bionics research has also propelled research in the field of aviation and computer science (an interesting field of artificial neural networks).

This book shall include the history, research into the field of bionics along with various aspects of the products/technologies that use bionics and the scope of this field of research. Through this book, the editors hope to increase the interest and research in this field to open up vistas in research.
