And why not?



Themanwhofellasleep wasn't always the polished corporate machine of today. These exclusive pictures show some of the early manwhofellasleep prototypes that have since been abandoned.

Model 13xb had wheels! Yes! Wheels! And pincers instead of fingers. The theory was that the pincers would enable it to perform operations on tiny insects. However, this proved ill-judged, since the market wasn't looking for insect-related operations.

You may also notice that the wheels all point in different directions, which limited its mobility.

If you look into 13xb's eyes, you can see a slight lingering sadness. No creature should be so aware of its obsolescence.
