Panasonic Hair Washing Robot – wash and rinse gets the C-3P0 treatment


Presenting the Panasonic Hair Washing Robot. Yes, one day you too could lie back and have your hair lovingly washed and rinsed by a portable metal machine with 16 ‘fingers’ which scan the head and apply ‘just the right amount of pressure‘ as they tease your scalp. Not only will it give you a luxurious head massage and wash, but it can remember your head for future visits and go straight to work.

To be honest, we’ll be impressed when it remembers which TV programs you like, and your Aunt Edna’s gall-stone operation, so it can chat along with the wash. But maybe we’re being picky. [Via]

 The hair-washing robot was developed to fill the needs of workers at hospitals and health care facilities. Studies among them revealed their dilemma that they cannot attend to each and every request of the patients, such as shampooing…Each arm has three motors that independently control swing, press and massage motions in conjunction with power detection sensors. The robot even remembers each person’s head shape and preferred massage course.
