‘Love Doll’ improves University life

Showa Hanako 2 is the new and improved robot that’s aimed at training dental students in Japan. Hanako 2 can do almost everything we can from facial movements to sneezing, creating a life-like doll for students to practise on. The robot can even represent a moving tongue and choking!

The ‘love doll’ aspect of the robot comes from the adult entertainment firm Orient Industry who are responsible for the silicone skin and mouth lining, creating a more realistic robot. The doll can also analyse each student’s performance and report back to them, further enhancing the dentistry training.

The link below is a video of the doll in action, it’s quite scary but interesting to watch! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhzbFaNueKU
