motor has not become a blog of “body horror”, esperpéntico film genre that feeds on fear and fear that leads to the deformities are extreme. But someone in the TAC (Transport Accident Commission) australia yes seems to be a fan of that genre. When you are not grueling campaigns to raise awareness of the danger of traffic accidents, hire sculptors, who create human artificial. Our protagonist is called Graham, and is a human able to withstand road traffic accidents.
Graham has been modeling by Patricia Piccinini, an artist and sculptor from australia.
Yes, his appearance is terrifying, and while it is clear that it is recognizable as a human being, there are many differences to a human standard. If you look at his head: although his brain is the same size as ours, their skull is much bigger and thicker, to prevent brain damage before the impacts cranial. Your skull is filled with fluid, and his strong neck to avoid the dreaded whiplash. Both his ears as nose are held, protected from any impact of an external object.
Look at your chest. Those strange folds are a kind of air bags, which protect your chest cavity of frontal impacts against a steering wheel. Their ribs are also thicker and stronger, protecting his internal organs with a provision in the form of a barrel. Perhaps the only conventional part of Graham are your arms, identical to the arms of an ordinary human. Their legs are different. Specifically their feet, which resemble those of a dog or a cat: they are designed for jumping great distances.
Great distances that would allow him to escape from abuses and situations of risk in which a pedestrian would have problems. The only problem is that no one is as Graham. The human being is evolutionarily designed to withstand car crashes, and very sure that our cars – increasingly what are more – an awareness of the dangers of driving continues to be vital. Manufacturers such as Volvo want that in just three and a half years no-one dies in their vehicles.
The autonomous car will also contribute substantially to the reduction of road deaths. It is a race to the bottom that will take years to complete, it does not I doubt. Graham has been modelled by the sculptor australian Patricia Piccinini, with the help of several experts in morphology medical the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
