The Japanese are well ahead of the rst of the world in the art of robotics and now they've created a hair washing robot.
Designed and made by well known electronics company Panasonic. It has 16 fingers and it washes and rinses the hair with pressure equal to a human hand. It also scans the head to determine the size and work out how much pressure is needed and it massages the scalp in much the same way as a hairdresser does :)
This sounds like a brilliant invention to me as I love the feeling of having my hair washed at a salon and the way they massage your head while cleaning your hair. Ifind it deeply relaxing and i've often been so relaxed that i've almost dozed off. To be able to do this at home would be wonderful.
Is this the future of at home haircare?
How much will it cost?
At the moment it isn't on general release but it will be interesting to see how much it costs and whether they'll sell outside of Japan.
