Hair-washing robot designed to deliver a human touch

Panasonic recently unveiled what's likely to become a staple of salons of the future, the hair-washing robot.

Using the company's robot hand technology, the mechanism massages and rinses the user's scalp, and even has the ability to give dry head and neck massages for relaxation. The system also employs 3D scanning to track the shape of a specific user's head allowing it to offer a robotic caress closely approximating a human touch.
