El "Hombre FORCYLOR", es un alucinante personaje, un verdadero hombre de acero, cuya colosal estatura sobrepasa los dos metros y medio y pesa más de 200 Kgs.

Muchos técnicos del extranjero, conocedores de su existencia, esperan su exhibición oficial con gran expectación. Se trata del primer robot construido enteramente en España, basado en leyes físicas inspiradas en la cibernética, preconizada por el notable ingeniero español Torres-Quevedo.

El robot "Hombre FORCYLOR-TRINXET", obede de y contesta a cuantos preguntas y órdenes le son transmitidas por telecontrol a frecuencias ultra elevadas con un solo canal discriminador de catorce audio-tonos. Una extensa red de relevadores, accionando los motores correspondientes, permite que el robot, "Hombre FORCYLOR-TRINXET", pueda andar en todos sentidos, gire sobre si mismo, accione los brazos provistos de sendas garras, lanzando rayos por los ojos por medio de dos potente proyectores intermitentes. No existe conexión material alguna entre el robot y el puesto de mando. El "Hombre FORCYLOR-TRINXET", constituye un maravilloso ingenio que contrasta extraordinariamente con los toscos muñecos construidos hasta la fecha en el extranjero. Su técnica, poco común, va a la par con su armoniosa estética, siendo de destacar que todos los materiales y lo mano de obra son totalmente de procedencia nacional.
