Dental Training Simulation
Engineers have developed a robot that can help dental students learn their craft. The Simroid supposedly can "feel" pain and react accordingly by vocalizing an "ouch" and by frowning.
Maybe they should get together with the scientists who are developing a working brain model. (Link thanks to Christie.)
Together they could bring us one step closer to androids who say things like, "My CPU is a neural net processor, a learning computer."
