Panasonic has developed a robot that can wash a person’s hair, with the use of 24 robotic fingers that supposedly give it a very lifelike feeling.

From ReutersThe customer leans back in what looks like a regular salon chair, over a sink, and the machine — upgraded from a 16-fingered version — shampoos, massages the scalp and rinses in about three minutes. Conditioning and a blow-dry add another five minutes.

The company says the prototype will probably be intended for use by the elderly, a population that is aided greatly by advancements in technology and robot science. Care-giving for the elderly is a huge necessity in Japan, and robots could aid in making it an easier task to manage.
