Panasonic is testing its latest invention, the Head Care Robot, in a salon in Japan until early June. The robot is designed to make the salon experience better and personalized to each individual.
The 24 “fingers” of the robot use sensors to fit around any person’s head shape. Then, it is designed to massage a person’s scalp while shampooing at the same time. A special nozzle is used that specializes in both long and short hair.
The process starts with shampooing, followed by conditioning, and ending with a massage while your hair is being blow-dried.
After the trial run is finished, Panasonic plans to market the robot for elderly and handicapped people.
