Japanese Hair Washing Robot

Japanese giant Panasonic has come up with a robot that can wash and blow dry hair. The product due for release next year is aimed to help the elderly population in Japan, and is seen as being a great aid to the rapidly increasing ageing population.

The washing robot can replicate the dexterous touch of a human hand and Panasonic believes the robot could help replace human care-givers in Japan.

The robot has 24 robotic fingers and 2 motorised arms, and shampoos, massages the scalp and rinses in about three minutes. Conditioning and a blow-dry add another five minutes to the process. Panasonic hopes to export the robot to other ageing societies such as South Korea and China, in the future.

    1. Thanks Zooming Japan, Yes, is a little scary when you think about it. A robot massaging your head with its powerful motorized arm and fingers. I think a movie could be made of this :)

    1. Thanks Thomas, I'd definitely give it a try just once as well :) I believe you are right and a day in the near future Japan will have robots doing all the little jobs.
