Some dental students in Tokyo have been practicing emergency medical procedures on a creepy new robot, designed to look and act just like a real-life girl.

The doll can produce saliva and VOMIT. Plus it will automatically react to motions that would cause a human pain or discomfort.  They even went as far as allowing instructors to be able to make the doll unexpectedly cough or sneeze.
