Humanity Take a Hint: Crash Test Dummies Getting Fatter Like Us... (video)

Ok... so all of us aren't on the 'hefty' side, but that isn't stopping the upgraded design of Crash Test Dummies on mimicking the size and weight of an average person (of today) to better test their crash studies.
Check out the video demo of the upgraded model below: 
CEO of Humanetics reveals that the larger someone is, the more out of position they are in the seat, increasing the risk if the worst should happen. That's why Thor, the latest model to roll off the production line, comes with a frame to mimic a 266 pound body as well as complex monitoring system to help determine how to build a better, safer car.
