The future is now -- sort
of. We were just waiting for robots to start reproducing before we gave over the future of humanity to these beings,
and while this might be a mere simulated pregnancy for med students to practice on, it seems close enough to us. The
robot, named Noelle, is a life-sized blond mannequin that costs $20,000 and simulates the pertinent vital signs and
exports of a pregnant woman, including blood, urine and a baby. Even the baby simulates vital signs, and can change
colors from pink to blue to signify oxygen deficiency. A human controller can initiate different complications, or just
sit back as the robot runs through its program of baby ejection. The bot is starting to be used med schools and
maternity wards across the country, and simpler versions have even seen action in Afghanistan for training.
