I'm just not clear on how their rig worked on making the dummy "generate its own heat" like the human body does.
As I recall, there was water being heated externally and then fed through the tubing into the dummy's body. So kinda like a dialysis machine, except with a heater instead of a filter.

They missed a bet in the smell of fear segment. A dog! Especially since the most common cliche I know of is to keep calm when faced with a dangerous animal because "they can smell fear on you!"
But how's the dog going to tell you whether it detects fear or not?
