Cool science! By using video goggles and tactile stimulation scientists were able to fool people into believing that mannequins and the bodies of other people were actually their own.

I don't know why but this really interests me. Still...

Dr Ehrsson said that the findings could be used to create new therapies for people with abnormal body image, as well as to confront bigotry by allowing people to identify with people of different races and sexes. It could also be used to improve robotics technology and even virtual reality video games.

What's the betting this becomes something to add on to your Wii before it makes it to be something actually beneficial?
