Be amazed: the 24 fingered hair washing machine
No small secret the Japanese just love their robots. Panasonic has developed a hair-washing robot and hopes to put it into actual service in beauty salons before the end of the year.
First, the robot moves its mechanical fingertips around the customer’s head, measuring it with sensors. Once it has an idea of the shape of the customer’s head, it applies hot water and shampoo and uses its 24 digits to wash the customer’s hair.
There are over 270,000 beauty salons in Japan, but plans are in motion to introduce these robots into nursing and care facilities as well.
