Kokoro Company Ltd. created a robot designed to be used for clinical training at dental schools. This humanoid robot, which has various features, is called Simroid.
Simroid was designed as a training apparatus for dentists. This robot is loaded with sensors that give feedback to dentistry students. It can express pain when poked hard; it grimaces to show pain; and it also moves its hands and eyes to say that it is hurt.
A sensor is also installed as part of its genitalia, allowing it to keep track of accidental or intentional contact; this will keep hygienists or dentists on their toes.
The goal of the Japanese robotic company is to aid dentistry students and hygienists. With Simroid, studying dentistry has become more sophisticated, without having to deal with real human beings.
