Hair stylist have been practicing their skills on wigs for years, but they are part of a small group of professionals who can practice on something so like the real thing. Now dentist and dental hygienist can be added to this list. The Hanako 2 Dental Robot is a humanoid robot that can simulate a dental patient.
Not only can you pull a tooth or giving her a cleaning Hanako can also simulate being difficult. Like turning her away or putting her tongue in the wrong spot. The robot patient can understand and respond to voice commands and even has a built in gag reflex.
