The annual CEATEC technology in Tokyo gives Japanese technology companies a chance to let their hair down and show off robots. Robot unicyclists and ‘robot companions’ are regulars at the show – often unveiled by otherwise normal technology companies. This year, Panasonic unveiled the first robotic hairdresser, with the ability to shampoo and wash hair. The robot uses 24 ‘fingers’ to massage the scalp while washing your head with jets of water and soap – like a car wash for your skull.
