The Showa Hanako 2 actually goes much farther lengths to create a realistic experience for the training practitioner. The robots mouth is designed to be as realistic as possible, down to the way that it feels. The creators of this dental bot got help from an unusual source in order to create that realism. Orient Industry, a company that is recognized as one of Japans top makers of sex dolls, was consulted to help the research team make up realistic skin, tongue and mouth areas. The system is also equipped with a basic program for voice recognition; this allows the training dentist to carry out some basic conversation with the robot during the exam or procedure. Like any good patient Hanako can give the dentist feedback about his or her performance. Unlike most patients however, she can store and analyze the student’s performance, giving then a detailed amount of experience on the computer. The robot will be on sale in Japan later this year. No details about pricing have been released at this time. Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Going to the dentist is something that we all have to do. Going to a novice dentist, and his or her drill, is something that most of us would rather avoid but they have to practice somewhere. Luckily for us researchers at Showa, a Japanese university, have been working on a solution to this thorny issue. They have created a robot, the Showa Hanako 2 that is able to not only mimic the kind of movement and gestures that a dentist may experience in the real world. This document is subject to copyright.

first_imgYou have another reason to drink that cup of coffee. Researchers including an Indian-origin medical student now report that regular caffeine consumption does not lead to extra heartbeats, which may lead – in rare cases – to heart- or stroke-elated morbidity and mortality.The study, led by researchers at the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF), measured the chronic consumption of caffeinated products over a 12-month period.“Clinical recommendations advising against the regular consumption of caffeinated products should be reconsidered as we may unnecessarily be discouraging consumption of items like chocolate, coffee and tea that might actually have cardiovascular benefits,” said senior author Gregory Marcus, health cardiologist and director of clinical research. “Given our recent work demonstrating that extra heartbeats can be dangerous, this finding is especially relevant,” he noted in a paper published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

first_img 3 min read January 4, 2017 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowcenter_img Enroll Now for Free Since its launch in 2014, transportation startup Faraday Future has been known mostly for stealth and mystery.At CES 2016, the electric car maker rolled out its concept car, the FFZero1. This year, the company returned to Las Vegas to unveil its first vehicle that will be available for purchase, the FF 91 — which you can reserve now if you happen to have a spare $5,000 lying around.The company says that the battery-operated car has 12 sensors, 10 HD cameras and can go from zero to 60 mph in 2.39 seconds. It boasts features such as facial recognition, keyless entry, zero-gravity seats, high-speed internet and the ability to park itself. But that last one caused some trouble at Faraday’s big CES presentation this week.Related: Faraday Future Shows Off Its Wild Electric Car ConceptHalfway through the hour presentation, Hong Bae, Faraday Future’s director of ADAS (advanced driving assistance systems) and self-driving took to the stage to demonstrate the FF 91’s driverless valet feature, with a backdrop behind him that said “never worry about parking again.”“Imagine you have a very important meeting to go to and you are running late. You rush to the office and the parking lot looks full. You don’t have 10, 15 minutes to look for a space,” Bae said, setting the scene. “Wouldn’t it be great if you could just come out of the car, bring your phone out, activate self-parking and the vehicle starts driving itself and looking for a parking spot?”Related: Tesla Rival Faraday Approved to Test Self-Driving Cars on California RoadsIn the parking lot, the car’s performance was a little plodding, but it successfully backed into the spot selected by John Jay Lee, the mayor of North Las Vegas who was on hand to help do the honors.However, the car’s big reveal onstage left a little to be desired. Jia Yueting, a Chinese billionaire who is Faraday’s main investor, drove up amid music and flashing lights. When Yueting hopped out of the car, Nick Sampson, the company’s senior vice president of research and development, prompted him to press the button that would initiate the car’s self-parking feature.And then nothing happened.The mishap was certainly embarrassing, especially given all the hype leading up to the big moment. Faraday has designs on rivaling Tesla, right down to poaching that company’s former employees. It also was in the news this fall when work had to be stopped on its $1 billion factory in Nevada (though construction is slated to commence again this year).Sometimes glitches and mistakes happen, but the Faraday leaders remained composed, kept things moving and said what they wanted to say, even though the outcome wasn’t ideal.last_img read more
