In penultimate series episode Double Take, remnants of the Virtual Eureka computer simulation reactivate and attempt to fulfill their programming, by recapturing the Astraeus crew and other town inhabitants, putting them back into the simulation and replacing them in town with 3D-printed artificial replicas. With only a few people left who have not been 'taken', Zane creates a device specifically designed to target the neural circuits of the pod people, leaving the real original humans unaffected; it's then up to Allison to detonate the device within range of all of the fake citizens.
Three versions of this prop, including an illuminating multipart machined aluminum and acrylic hero with extended endposts, a static aluminum and acrylic hero with retracted endposts, and a single piece rubber stunt. The light-up prop has removable magnetically-latched top and bottom covers, faux circuitry elements under the top cover as seen in use onscreen, and blinking red side and end lights activated by a small concealed switch. Atypically for this show, the illuminated prop, presumably indicating bomb activation, was not seen onscreen; the static hero was instead used for all the later closeup shots.
