Creepy practice robots from Japan return again, but this time is one that seems a little too real. Called "Hanako" this robot is a collaboration betwen experts at Tmsuk and several Japanese universities. It is designed to simulate a real actual patient's response to questions and dental work. Like gagging, choking, and looking all uncomfortable.
Hanako will respond when greeted and asked several questions, and will react to the dental student working on its mouth. She can open and close her mouth when ordered, perform random actions such as a sneeze and even discharge saliva. Touch sensors in her mouth will have her wincing in pain if a press is too hard or an instrument goes somewhere it shouldn't, or gag violently if things go south.
