And no, I'm not talking about Katie Holmes.
In January 2005, Regine posted about a Johns Hopkins-designed pregnancy and birth simulation robot that was used to train medical students. It measured how much pressure was being applied where on the fetus's skull, and in the fabric-covered simulated birth canal.
Well, what a difference a year makes. Over the weekend, she posted about v2.0, Noelle, an far more elaborate and sophisticated pregancy robot that can simulate a whole host of delivery complications, all pre-programmable and/or instantly adjustable via wireless.
No doubt the second you buy one, though, it'll go obsolete; they'll come out with a new model, a cute little Pregnancy Robot Nano which fits right in your pocket.
