OriginEdit

This seemingly old normal fax machine was once owned and by the inventor of the first Fax Machine, Alexander Bain.

When experimenting with the process of electronic messages, Alexander built this prototype that he himself kept to use later on. Eventually the machine was imbued with the power to send thoughts and images the user thinks of to anyone in the world. Unfortunately, the user can overload the brain of messages and images.

CollectionEdit

Warehouse 13 Agents, M. Douglas and J. Scullion, collected this artifact in 1903 after bank tellers were found robbed from and were catatonic. This artifact was used only once after its collection, by Agent A. Walters in 1956 to find a missing agent and the artifact they were collecting: Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi's Forceps .

Real World ConnectionsEdit

Alexander Bain (October 1811 – 2 January 1877) was a Scottish inventor and engineer who was first to invent and patent the electric clock along with the Fax Machine. Bain installed the railway telegraph lines between Edinburgh and Glasgow.
