Panasonic Bot Hair Washer

Not only has Panasonic been working on a robo-bed, they have developed a hair-washing bot for hospitals and health care facilities. With 16 fingers, it both washes and rinses shampoo probably as good as any human. The arms first scans the head to measure head shape and supposedly knows how much pressure must be applied. Three motors on each hand independently control the movements. We suspect it won't be long before the company comes up with a full body massage-bot.
