Default Road saftey authorities build model: If humans evolved to survive car crashes

Quote:
This rather striking looking figure is the latest weapon in the Australian authorities’ efforts to improve road safety.

Named ‘Graham’, he’s made from fibreglass, silicone and human hair – and his unique features are intended to demonstrate what humans would look like if we’d evolved to survive road collisions. He has no neck, a sunken nose, air bags between each rib and limbs that bend in all directions.

Described as an “education tool for discussion about human vulnerability,” the Victorian Transport Accident Commission’s (TAC) website for the project says: “Graham shows us what we might look like if we were built to survive on our roads. He’s a reminder of just how vulnerable our bodies really are when speed and impact forces as low as 30km/h are at play.”

Melbourne Hospital trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield, who helped design Graham with artist Patricia Piccinini, said: ”The head has a much bigger skull so it acts like a bicycle helmet. Graham actually has no neck, he has no cervical spine that can be fractured in a whiplash injury. These ribs are super ribs absorbing much more of the force.”

TAC chief executive officer Joe Calafiore said: “People can survive running at full pace into a wall but when you’re talking about collisions involving vehicles, the speeds are faster, the forces are greater and the chances of survival are much slimmer.

“Cars have evolved a lot faster than humans and Graham helps us understand why we need to improve every aspect of our roads system to protect ourselves from our own mistakes.”

Ms Piccinini described Graham as ‘very Australian’, adding: “He’s not patronising, he’s not imposing, he’s open to us and the eyes are where the work is. It’s where you can really connect with him and empathize. If he was aggressive or belligerent or sort of patronising we wouldn’t be able to do that.”

Thought of you.

Not fooled.
Looks more like the perfect protester.
Able to survive the club beatings and note the fat head thick neck with beady eyes for intimidation and big feet for those long marches.

Getting back to reality here.
That has to be one of the biggest waists of tax money I've seen to date.
I can not possibly conceive how that model will lead to any breakthrough for car safety and apparently neither can they.
So for now its just a waist of time and money for something they could have simply rendered on a home PC using photo chop.
Looks like nothing more than an over priced display of the kind of minds that the education system is pumping out these days.
.. I suppose in that respect seeing what the education system is producing is the real breakthrough.
More likely its their ideal rendition of the perfect potato.
It was inevitable I suppose.

People can survive running at full pace into a wall but when you’re talking about collisions involving vehicles, the speeds are faster.
He must be really smart to figure that out.

Like being in car accidents would be the major influence upon human evolution.
