To make this training more effective, scientists have developed a robotic butt. These prosthetic buttocks are attached to a silicone thimble and a series of small robotic arms that provide haptic feedback. The robot tracks the movement, position, and force of a finger, then uses its arms to push back, recreating the shape and feel of a real rectum. This process is combined with 3D modeling technology, displaying a recreation of the rectum and prostate that the teacher can see using 3D glasses, helping guide the examination and diagnosis.

If you're a man and go to the hospital that seems to be the cure for everything, stick a finger up your ass. Doc got belligerent when I asked what that had to do with my eye problems.
