Japanese scientists have just invented a contraption to give facial therapeutic massages across the country's spas and hospitals. The WAO-1 robot (Waseda Asahi Oral Rehabilitation Robot 1) is designed to give fine massages, including facial ones for those with jaw-related illnesses. The robot was designed by Atsuo Takanishi and does a much more thorough job that coin operated machine chairs.
Great for anyone who doesn't like others invading their personal space, but not so great for the good old masseur and masseuse, or lovers of the traditional massage experience.
