This is what the perfect body looks like – according to science

Using attributes from other animals, a la Dr Moreau, an anthropologist speculates on the “perfect” body. The 3D rendering looks sorta like a faun or a demon! Via Radio Times:

So what does the perfect body look like? Professor Alice Roberts, a physical anthropologist, has conducted a scientific experiment to create a body tailor-made for life in the 21st century. And now her fascinating journey is being shown in a one-off documentary – Can Science Make Me Perfect? – on BBC4.

Alice 2.0 is a redesign of Roberts’ own body, created with the help of a virtual anatomical artist and an expert prosthetics sculptor, inspired by other animals’ most useful features.

Roberts’ creation has skin which can change instantly between pale and dark – to ensure she would make enough vitamin D with her lighter skin in the British winter, while switching colour in summertime to prevent skin damage – as well as a marsupial pouch, ostrich legs, cat ears, octopus eyes and a chimpanzee spine.
