It was only a matter of time before robots took over the beauty industry. While we think the automated makeup machine still needs a little work, this mechanical shampoo bowl is the future! The robot created by Japanese company Panasonic is a hybrid between a massage chair and a car wash. First, it spritzes the scalp with water and shampoo, and then the nubs work to massage the scalp. We understand this shampoo method could cut minutes off your salon experience, but we foresee tons of tangles for curly-haired clients. Also, nothing can replace the total relaxation that comes when your hairstylist hits that perfect spot (right?).
