If this dog is doing you a frighten, no need to bork. It’s synthetic, and SynDaver Labs hopes to save canine lives with it.
From a press release on the SynDaver website:
Today, many veterinary students must dissect live dogs as part of their education, according to the press release. SynDaver Labs hopes to curb “terminal surgery labs” with the SynDog, as we’re calling it here at Popular Science.
The cadavers are anatomically accurate, with all of the bones, muscles, and other doggy parts you’d want in your SynDog. SynDaver labs is also mounting an IndieGoGo campaign to raise $24,000,000 in the next two months. With the money, they will give 20 SynDaver Synthetic Canines to every accredited veterinary college in the world. They have raised about $1300 so far.
