Admittedly, the Amio is a pretty awesome robot, but it takes the Japanese to make something truly creepy with their robot and blow the Amio clean out of the water.
The Japanese, you see, built a fully functional robot…that simulates SWINE FLU.
Unveiled at the recent gathering of the Security and Safety Trade Expo in Tokyo, the Swine Flu Robot simulates fully a patient experiencing swine flu. Everything. That includes sweating, moaning, and convulsing. Plus, if the symptoms aren’t properly treated, they start to diminish until eventually the robot stops “breathing”.
For a society that gave us games about doctors, this isn’t terribly surprising. Perhaps one of the greatest illness simulators ever devised, this robot is bound to help someone with their swine flu training.
