Yeah, so many cyborgs have been invented both in the real world and in movies. Cyborg means an individual whose body has been integrated with any electrical or mechanical device in order to enhance the abilities of the body. A perfect example a cyborg is Oscar Pistorius. He participated during the 2012 summer Olympics and he was able to make it to the semi final. And as a result of this, he became the first person to participate in event with artificial legs.

His legs were surgically removed when he was still a baby. If we are going to look at this critically, almost everybody qualifies to be regarded as cyborgs. Most times, we find ourselves wearing different kinds of technology. I have watched and read about different reports of people who were able to get artificial eyes, bionic arms, which have in a great way added to their vision.

The correct answer to this question is Yes. The first human cyborg has been around since 1997. It was created by Phillip Kennedy, who is both a scientist and a physician. The cyborg he created was from Johnny Ray. Johnny Ray was a Vietnam veteran. He had been dealing with a stroke, and his doctors agreed that his body was locked in from the stroke.

Ray missed his old life and agreed to Kennedy's experiment of becoming a cyborg. This was done through an implant being embedded into Ray's brain so that he can regain some movement to his body. In the end, the experiment was successful.
