The $20,000 Pregnant Robot is actually a breakthrough training training device for medical students. The robot actually gives birth to a baby and simulates vital signs. The baby even changes colors from pink to blue to simulate an oxygen deficiency. A number of different complications are programmed in for training, and the robot can even give birth.

Implications - The use of robotics in the medical field has benefited patients and doctors alike. They provide proper simulations in which trainee doctors can really get a taste of what real-life situations are all about, enhancing their ability to assist patients. Researchers in the technological field should try to develop even more robots for industries that require a hands-on approach.
