Medical mannequins can be a useful training aid but interacting with them can feel unnatural.

But at Sheffield Hallam University augmented reality is now being used to 'turn' the mannequin into a real person.

The app contains various scenarios, recorded by actors, to make the situation feel more realistic.

Once the introduction has been made using the app, the mannequin can be remotely controlled to continue reacting in keeping with the simulation.

BBC Click's Lara Lewington reports.
