Nightmarish dental training robot

Now, we're all for dentists receiving the best training there is. But, last time we checked, they were doing fine without any fear-inducing robot fiends helping them.

In a terrifying move, roboticists in Japan have unveiled "Showa Hanako 2", a distressingly life-like faux-patient that will help patients train with a range of motions and voice recognition technology. All features that will come back to haunt us when the impending robocalypse occurs.

The university has been helped by the sex industry to provide them with a life-like robot with such a believable gag reflex. Vomit. All over the place.

So when we're reduced to drones in the future, at least we'll have nice teeth for our robot overlords to ruthlessly smash in. Great.
