(CYBernetic ORGanism) A being that is part human and part machine. The term was coined in 1960 by Manfred Clynes and Nathan Kline in an article they wrote about how humans can survive in space. For centuries, various cultures have fantasized about half human-half artificial beings; however, in the 20th century this concept materialized in the form of artificial limbs, pacemakers and other bionic devices.
