Info

In an oddly ghoulish bit of dental R&D, Waseda University engineers have built a "jaw-robot" from a skull, some electronic circuitry, and an assembly of pulleys, wheels, and cables that act like muscle. Sensors measure the biting action of the jaw and the force of the chewing. Japan. From the book Robo sapiens: Evolution of a New Species, page 173.
