The realistic silicone face of the dental robot.
A professor from Showa University School of Dentistry in Japan says that a realistic-looking robot face has a different psychological effect on users training to be dentists.
This dental training robot, Showa Hanako 2, has silicone skin, a series of movements, blinking eyes, a gag reflex and speech recognition. Its mouth lining was designed by Orient Industries, a maker of love dolls.
