The Modern Cure for Salon Small Talk
When I heard via TechCrunch.com that Panasonic recently debuted a new and improved version of their hair-washing robot—complete with 24 fingers, wetting, shampooing, conditioning and drying functions—I had only one question: "Where do I sign up?" The robot allows you to store your head shape and preferred washing method so that you can repeat your customized experience the next time (all without the chit-chat or leaving a tip). While this miracle of modern science isn't available to the public yet, I can't wait to meet this beauty-bot, not talk about the state of my love life or own up to the fact that I purposely haven't washed my hair in days, and focus solely on its 24 robotic fingers at work.
Unbelievable beauty innovations
