$25 - 40 million dollar man

The Six Million Dollar Man was Steve Austin, an astronaut, barely alive, who was rebuilt with bionics to be faster and stronger. It was a TV show from 1974.

He was called the Six Million Dollar Man, a very lame title these days, as that was apparently how much was spent on his bionics.

$6 million dollars today would probably only pay for one arm these days in the fictional sense.

Based on relative purchasing power at that time, today he would need about $25 million dollars spent on him using the same technology.

Obviously technological advances since 1974 and cost savings in manufacturing probably mean that, yes he probably would cost something in the order of $25 to $40 million dollars today.


After yesterday's action packed day, I did nothing today.
