Panasonic Head Care Robot Features
The robot was introduced first time in 2010. It consists of a comfortable recliner and a wash basin. It is equipped with sensors and 24 mechanical fingers to scalp and wash your hair. 8 fingers fit on the left side of the head and 8 on the right side and another eight on the back of the neck.
The sensors will determine and analyze the shape and size of a customer’s head, then the robot applies shampoo jets on your head along with conditioner. It then massages your scalp and back of the neck with its 24 robotic fingers. It finally air-blows your hair to dry.
Panasonic is sure the robot provides highly comfortable head & neck massage and hair care which is not possible to receive from human hands. Panasonic’s main idea behind creating the robot is to provide help and look-after to the handicapped or old people. Once the trials at Super Hair Seo are successfully done, Panasonic has plans to launch the robot in the market soon after. Panasonic expects hair salons and hospitals to get equipped with its Head Care Robot. Panasonic is hell-bent to offer robotic solutions and personal care robots to look-after humans.
