A full-sized light-up functional medical pod from the production of Ridley Scott’s 2012 sci-fi film Prometheus.
Led to a distant planet by ancient wall paintings, scientists Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) join a corporate sponsored mission to discover the source of life on Earth. But in the ruins of an alien space craft, the human explorers soon find that all is not as it seems, and a great threat lurks in its deep holds.
The Pauling MedPod was a high-tech piece of medical equipment located within Meredith Vickers' (Charlize Theron) FTL Lifeboat aboard the USCSS Prometheus. Dr Elizabeth Shaw programmed the MedPod to quickly extract an alien embryo from her abdomen in an impromptu caesarean, before sealing the newborn creature inside the device.
This item comprises a fully functioning medical bed with an added machined MDF exterior frame, finished in a clinical white paint. Various decals decorate the outside, including the Weyland Corp insignia, element symbols and a warning sign. A curved cover consisting of transparent Plexiglas panels with a white wooden frame is fitted on top of the bed, designed to fold outwards to allow easy access. The inside of the pod features a hexagonal headrest with adhered black padding and an arch at the centre. Strips of functioning white LEDs run around the interior frame of the cover.
A variety of cables are wrapped around the base of the bed and the MedPod is powered by five different UK mains plugs. Two of the plug cables feature adhered strips of masking tape on which ‘LED’ is written in black marker. The medical bed comes with a connected remote control and controls on the base, which allow the pod to tilt at multiple angles. Both sides of the lot feature functional console panels, capable of displaying video graphics played through a built-in DVD player located at the rear. The screens are controlled by an external remote control (included with the item). Signs of production use are present on the MedPod, including minor scratches and scuffs on the Plexiglas, cracks on both of the blue sections on the main body, paint wear to the wooden parts, and splatters of stage blood. Care should be taken when controlling the bed to prevent damage.
