A trip to the dentist could be a lot less painful in future thanks to this
dental training robot.

The humanoid practice robot, dubbed Simroid for “simulator humanoid”, alerts dentistry students if it is uncomfortable.

From a distance the Simroid looks like a petite Japanese woman, dressed in a pink sweater and loud red PVC heels.

On closer inspection, you realise the ‘woman’ is a robot by Japanese
engineers, in a bid to help dental students treat the patients in the gentlest
way possible.
