DENTAL ROBOT FLINCHES JUST LIKE A REAL LIFE PATIENT

by Miryam Muller in


Showa Hanako 2 is an eerily realistic robot that dental students can practice their skills on before being let loose on a real human. The main features of the new robot are a silicone skin and mouth lining by Orient Industry, a maker of love dolls. The tongue and arms each have two degrees of freedom, and the robot overall has ten, enabling it to make natural movements, like shaking its head and choking.
