At a factory in Tampa, Florida, mad scientists are bringing bodies to life. Not Frankensteining the dead, but using a library of polymers to craft synthetic cadavers that twitch and bleed like real suffering humans.

Hospitals and med schools use the fakes to teach anatomy and train surgeons, and the most lifelike model is the $95,000 SynDaver Patient. This exquisite corpse can be controlled wirelessly so practitioners can rehearse elaborate medical scenarios in which the patient goes into shock and even “dies.”It’s less messy, and a good deal longer-lasting, than real flesh and blood!

Some of its unique features are:

- A compressor under the table draws air in and out. Doctors can practice tracheotomies and intubations

- More than 600 muscles are sutured to the cadaver’s 206 bones, and every joint is movable

- Diseases on demand! SynDaver can afflict the body with specific pathologies—a pancreatic tumor, for example
