Panasonic's hair washing robot now accepting customers

First announced in Japan back in September 2010, Panasonic’s Hair Washing Robot is now officially accepting humans ready to have their hair washed like a pro! Available as a trial from April 11 up to June 10th at the Hair Salon Super Hair Seo in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, this little wonder uses none less than 24 digit to clean your scalp and head without the needs of an operator!

Hair-washing robot
The hair-washing robot was developed to fill the needs of workers at hospitals and health care facilities. Studies among them revealed their dilemma that they cannot attend to each and every request of the patients, such as shampooing, as it will add another task to the workers who are already burdened with many tasks.

The hair-washing robot uses Panasonic’s robot hand technology. With 16 fingers, the robot washes hair and rinses the shampoo bubbles with the dexterity of human fingers. The robot’s two arms scan the head three dimensionally as they move and measure and remember the head shape to apply just the right amount of pressure to each person when shampooing and massaging. Each arm has three motors that independently control swing, press and massage motions in conjunction with power detection sensors. The robot even remembers each person’s head shape and preferred massage course.
