Talk about going on a gender bender. A new machine created by a Spanish design collective combines virtual reality with advanced neuroscientific techniques to let men and women swap bodies with each other.

Questions for discussion:

1. If you had the opportunity to be the opposite sex for a day, would you take it?

2. Other than gaining insights on the opposite sex and their physicality, what other “take-aways” might you have from an experience like this?
