Robots: Panasonic Head Care Robot . Video.
Panasonic presents its Head Care Robot. The robot is designed to support staff at hospitals and care facilities with hair washing. The robot will undergo trials for 2 months at Hair Salon Super Seo in Nishiyama City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan.
The robot moves its mechanical fingertips around the customer's head, measuring it with sensors. Once it has an idea of the unique shape of the customer's head, it applies hot water and shampoo and uses its 24 digits to wash the customer's hair.
