Nice Skin [May. 26th, 2005|02:24 pm]
While photographically documenting the creation of the PKD robot I noticed his robot skin laying next to his robot skull. Although his face lying on the table looked like a sleeping child, it brought to mind something rather creepy.
At the Body Worlds exhibit one may find the muscular system body of a man standing there holding his own skin, draped over his arm, as if he were about to get dressed and looking at it as if unsure that was in fact what he wanted to wear. ( http://www.bodyworlds.com/en/pages/home.asp )
Good thing for the robot he will have a very fine looking skin, soft and healthy, and very sturdy.

yeah it is really cool and well worth seeing. you may consider going ahead and travelling for it. It looks like it wont be anywhere near here in the near future. I could see the right wing christians in this part of the country deliberately keeping it out.
