Panasonic Hair Washing Robot

Panasonic will launch its Hair-Washing Robot at the 38th International Home Care & Rehabilitation Exhibition in Tokyo on October 5 - 7, 2011. Panasonic says its new Hair-Washing Robot can complete the entire process of hair washing automatically, from wetting to shampooing, rinsing, conditioning and drying. The robot uses its 24 "fingers" to gently wash a person's head. The robot can even store the data of each person's head shape and preferred washing mode. This video shows the first model, which was introduced in 2010. Panasonic says the new model (pictured above) has more robotic fingers and improved mechanics. All you have to do is be brave enough to put your head inside the robot and it will wash your hair thoroughly. Pricing information is not yet available. Take a look:
