Robots Campaign Against Swine Flu
Earlier today, a robot designed to help doctors diagnose Swine flu was unveiled at an exhibition in Japan The life-sized humanoid displayed at the Security&Safety Trade Expo in Tokyo, exhibits symptoms of the H1N1 flu virus.
The robat was developed to help medical workers recognise symptoms of the illness and learn to treat patients.
It is coated in a human-like skin.
It sweats, moans, cries and convulses just like a human would when infected with the H1N1 virus.
If the robot is not treated properly the symptoms gradually get worse and the robot stops breathing.
The robot was one exhibit amongst many others at the show aimed to either help prevent or aid treatment of the H1N1 flu.
