Overview
I AM AUTOMAN. Walter Nebicher is the police department's resident computer geek... his immediate superiors think Walter's place is behind the desk and not on the streets. However, Walter has other ideas.

Walter's expertise in computer programming is unparalleled and he creates a special program, 'Automan,' an artificially intelligent computer hologram that looks real, sounds real and given enough power can physically exist in the real world. Together, Walter and Automan along with Cursor, a small floating droid that creates any object Automan needs to, battle crime on the city streets.
