What is believed to be the first prototype of The Bionic Man has been found in a warehouse in Alabama over the week-end. The prototype, albeit crude, is inpiring in its ingeniosity. Receipts found on site are showing a total investment of $782.53, far from the $6M invested in Colonel Steve Austin a few years later.
The prototype’s purpose appears to be a mystery: an 8-track was embedded in the lower addomen, Xmas lights was inserted under the skin to create a “glow”, speakers were attached to the volunteer’s chest and astroturf covered the whole body. Our scientists are trying to determine if other prototypes have been developed.
We’ll keep you posted for future developments of that story.
