WAO-1 Robotic Facial Massage

My lovely Vietnamese house boy might give a decent facial massage, but I don’t think he would quite compare to this robotic massager. Researchers at the Waseda University in Tokyo have developed the WAO-1 Face Massaging Robot, hoping for its use in the medical field.

The movement of the robot’s arms is programmed using a complex set of algorithms made to emulate the movement for a perfect massage, with six sensors measuring the degree of pressure being issued. No news yet if a home version will ever be available, though seeing as these cost a whopping $70,000, we would think home use isn’t ready quite yet. — Andrew Dobrow

  1. This is the craziest thing that I have stumbled on in a while. Have there been any more reviews on this facial massage
