    Eric Knight is a confused young man who was a famous child prodigy inventor, but who hasn’t seen much success since. Strange things always seem to happen around Eric - door knobs fall off in his hands, computer screens go blank when he touches them, alarms go off randomly as he walks by.

    Today, he will find out why.
