Scientists in Barcelona have created a device that allows users to “swap” bodies with others in real time, using a headset that is able to trick male minds into feeling like a woman and vice versa.

The Oculus Rift headset, also known as “The Machine To Be Another” by Spanish researchers, allows users who mimic each other’s movements to feel what it is like to be inside their partner’s body, Wired magazine reported.

“Deep inside you know it’s not your body, but you feel like it is,” Philippe Bertrand, a digital arts student and co-founder of BeAnotherLab, told Wired.

They already did an experiment that men could not handle child birth.

As well as I don't think women should be front line in combat. God made men with natural upper body strength for a reason.

natural upper body strength was more useful when wars were waged with swords, spears and shields, rather than automatic rifles, for which brains and quick thinking are probably a greater asset.

True all that but the women are now having a hard time passing basic PT skills in bootcamps now that Obama opened it up. Pull ups, sit ups and so on...
