ADAM and EVE in PLASTIC (Nov, 1950)


SCIENCE is resurrecting Adam and Eve but the 1950 editions are a bit different from the originals. Talking, transparent reproductions of a woman and man which reveal in natural color every detail of the human anatomy are being built in Germany for exhibition at London’s British Food Fair.

Recorded lectures will seem to be the voices of the statues as they deliver talks on health, diet and hygiene while various parts of the anatomy light up to demonstrate specific points. Statues are the brainchildren of scientist Franz Tschackert.
