Some mannequins are even more eerie. This hyperrealistic robot from Japan has a silicone mouth that looks and feels almost like the real thing. It can autonomously turn its head, sneeze, cough, blink, and simulate choking. The robot has speech recognition capability and can hold conversations with dental students.
