(UPI) -- A "Bionic Man" put together by a team of scientists and researchers at the University of Zurich will visit Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

The Bionic Man was created using the "most sophisticated" prosthetic and artificial organs available and it will show itself to the world in a documentary titled "The Incredible Bionic Man."

Researchers were able to recreate more than 50 percent of a human body for the Bionic Man. He is controlled remotely from a computer, with Bluetooth connections that operate his limbs.

The prototype will be shown by Bertold Meyer, a social psychologist from the University of Zurich and host of the upcoming documentary, outside the National Air and Space Museum Thursday at 11 a.m. EDT. If you're unable to attend the showing, the documentary will air on the Smithsonian Channel Sunday at 9 p.m.
