Japanese Dental Robot

dentalrobotg3011_468x637We give you another odd robot from Japan.  This one is  used for dental training.

Dr. Naotake Shibui along with engineers from Kokoro have developed a dental training robot known as Simroid or Pain Girl.

Simroid has sensors in her mouth as well as her chest and can respond verbally.

As much as his robot reaches the uncanny valley, I would rather the dentists in training practice on her than me.

Watch the wacky video after the break.
