Would You Let A Robot Wash Your Hair?

Would You Let A Robot Wash Your Hair? featured image

In the NewBeauty office there are some loyal Clarisonic users and several electronic toothbrush enthusiasts. But while technology might be replacing some of our most basic grooming tasks, it’s safe to say that all of the NewBeauty staffers are still washing their hair manually. That may soon change.

Panasonic’s Hair-Washing Robot is not new. Debuting last year, the “16-fingered” robot is getting an update that will be presented next month at the 8th International Home Care & Rehabilitation Exhibition. The new robot now features 24 “fingers” to shampoo, condition and even dry hair. While a hair-washing robot might seem a little whacky, it is a revolutionary concept for people who have limited mobility. While we expect these robots to first appear in hospitals and nursing homes, we wouldn’t be too surprised if they eventually popped up in hair salons.
