I know the few times I've sat down in a "new" barber's chair, I have been extremely nervous. Well, the Tokyo Institute of Technology has developed something that may help calm those nerves: the 'Air Hair' haircut simulator.

The Air Hair haircut simulator uses a mannequin, motorized scissors and a display screen featuring a digital avatar with simulated hair to allow aspiring hairdressers to practice their craft--without the fear of screwing up a client's 'do. The 'Air Hair' is certainly an amazing innovation. Stats for Virtual Reality Hairstyling Trending: Older & Average
