Flight simulators are terrific tools for pilots learning how to fly. Pilots can be introduced to a whole range of flying conditions and dangerous circumstances in complete safety in order to prepare them for the real thing. Flight simulators represent the pinnacle of the simulation business. I hadn’t really thought about it before, but it’s clear that there’s a whole industry devoted to providing simulators for training doctors and nurses.
Ladies and gentlemen, courtesy of Gizmodo, I give you the Digital Rectal Examination Simulator. While you’re at the web site of Kyotokagaku, you may care to check out the other goods on offer, e.g. the Prostate Examination Simulator (with its cunning rotating unit) or the Male Catheterization Simulator (my legs crossed involuntarily at this one).
I’m particularly struck by the thoughtful touch of the company including a jar of vaseline with the rectal and prostate simulators, but I thought that they would have known that KY Jelly is much preferred.
