This video takes you along for Helicopter airlift medevac mission training using a robot that is so shockingly realistic you may even confuse it for an actual human being.

The video starts off simple enough with a helo ride.

The robot features wounds that are so lifelike they are almost indistinguishable from the real deal.

This robot doesn’t just look realistic, it also acts realistically. The robot was designed to move around while being worked on to simulate a real injured solider. The wounds dispense faux-blood and the machine’s chest rises and falls to simulate breathing.
