50 years ago, TV shows like The Jetsons envisioned a world of robotic butlers in every modern home -- Panasonic's Hair Dresser Bot will bring us one step closer to owning a caregiver like Rosie.
Because Japan boasts one of the oldest populations on the planet, the growing elderly demographic has been the target of most tech conglomerates, catering to their dietary, health and cosmetic needs. Luckily, the Hair Dresser Bot has recently been unveiled by Panasonic at the Home Care and Rehabilitation Exhibition in Tokyo. Armed with 24 human-like fingers, the robot is built to perfectly replicate the sensation of having one's hair hand-washed when patient orderlies aren't present. In just three minutes, the robot will shampoo, massage and finally rinse your hair. Once clean, the reclined subject will have their hair conditioned and blown dry. Whether you're old or not, this machine would be incredibly useful on early, lazy mornings.
