A Torrance hospital held a baby shower this week for an unlikely addition: A 7-pound robotic baby named Simantha. The $35,000 baby "born" May 30 will serve as an educational tool for students and staff members in the clinical skills lab at Torrance Memorial Medical Center. Simantha joins three robotic adults: Stan D. Ardman (a play on the phrase "standard man"), Brittnay and Jake, who is called Jessica when staff members use her as a female. John Edwards, the clinical skills simulation technician who runs the lab and maintains the robots, was beaming like a proud father at the baby shower, he said.

Forget bellycasting or that barefoot glamour photo shoot on the beach to commemorate your pregnancy. And who needs a cast of tiny post-natal footprints? Now you can print your fetus into a figurine.  "Imagine holding your baby before he or she is born," reads the website of 3D Babies, a company that promises to bring your not-yet-fully-formed baby to life. The process is simple enough. 3D Babies takes your 3D or 4D sonograms, tweaks them a bit digitally and then renders that tiny growing cherub into a plastic doll via 3D printing.  The babies come in three sizes -- an 8-inch life-size, a 4-inch half-size and a 2-inch mini -- with a choice of three shades: light, medium or dark.
