Synopsis / Plot
TV Series (1983-1984). 13 Episodes. An expert programmer and police officer, Walter Nebicher has created a crime fighting AI at police's mainframe, powerful enough to be able to bring to real world a program's hologram espontaneously, who introduces himself as Automan and resembles a program in Tron: his body glows with geometrical patterns in neon cyan light. Automan exhibits superhero-like abilities in the real world, but he completely fails in human relationships. He can materialize such transportation as a car (a Lamborghini Countach), a plane or a helicopter by means of a companion polyedrical and free-floating character called "Cursor". At Automan's request, Cursor is able to draw three dimensional wireframe vehicles and materialize them in seconds. When the constructs are no longer needed, Cursor can perform the inverse operation to delete them. As a side effect, the car driven by Automan only turns in 90 degree angles (due to it using the same algorithm that Pac-Mac uses, as implemented by Nebicher), and defying the physics' laws, it turns around instantaneously.
