The line between cyborgs and robots can be blurry:

T-850: You cannot self-terminate.

John Connor: No, you can't. I can do anything I want. I'm a human being, not some god-damn robot.

T-850: (correcting him) Cybernetic organism.

John Connor: Whatever![2]

Cyborgs have been represented in a variety of forms, augmentations and ethical frameworks.

  • Darth Vader from Star Wars - a physically and emotionally changed human
  • RoboCop - a fallen police officer who first loses, then regains his humanity
  • The Terminator - a sentient killing machine, later reprogrammed for greater empathy
