This is a crash-proof human
Say ‘hi’ to Graham. He’s the product of a collaborative effort by a team of doctors, artists, and engineers from the Transport Accident Commission in Australia. Their task was to produce a human that’s evolved to such an extent it can survive car crashes. Graham is that human. He also might be your next swipe on Tinder, so keep your fingers primed.
See, car crashes are bad. And no matter how good crash safety gets, the difference between life and death is generally the strength of our puny, squishy bodies. And in comparison to Graham, we’re pathetic.
You may notice that he looks, um, rather different to you or I. His head is larger than your average human, with a helmet-like skull complete with crumple zones to protect his brain.
He has a concave, fatty face and has no nose to break. His expression is void. We’re not sure if that helps with crash safety, or is indicative of his character. Either way, Graham looks pretty chilled with life. And to be fair, we would be if we could crash a Caterham into a wall for fun.
You may also notice he has no neck. That’s to prevent leverage and your head falling off in a hefty shunt. His rib cage extends further up than normal, and his chest is complemented with air sacks that act as fleshy Citroen-style air bumps. They’re also reasonably foul-looking.
Leathery, thick skin shrouds his body. Even his new knees that move in all directions like a joystick. Meanwhile, his biggest party trick are his hooved legs that allow him to jump out of the way of oncoming traffic.
Now, who wants to go for a pint with Graham? We sure as hell do.
