So cool!

Check out some of the results:
I know that these images look like the skeletons without flesh and muscles, but as this video creepily illustrates, the skeletons are in fact encased in bodies that have been rendered transparent:
It's cool and creepy at the same time. I just hope these researchers don't link up with the guys behind those "Bodies" exhibits.
