During the 1904 World’s Fair, Dr. Ari Jacobson and Dr. Julian Shaw debuted their marvelous creation, The Animatronic Man. Despite great interest, they dissolved their partnership shortly after, leaving their invention unfinished. Eleven years later, WWI rages in Europe, and the Germans have just sunk the Lusitania. The call for America to join the war grows louder, and Dr. Jacobson has announced a mysterious new invention after years of exile. They have invited guests from their past and present to a special reveal in Menlo Park, the small quaint town they've lived in for years. Rumors fly as to what this new invention could be, and the anticipation could kill someone!
