Hygiene is important, obviously, but sometimes a busy schedule can make your daily grooming routine seem way too time-consuming (we’ve all been there). And although showering is an unavoidable necessity, showering with robots might be the answer to streamlining the process. Right? Well, that’s one woman’s hope, anyway.
YouTuber Simone Gertz, of Sweden, decided it was in everyone’s best interest for her to develop a robot that can wash your hair for you while you shower. All you have to do is stand there while the robot dispenses shampoo into your hair and rubs it in with its mechanical rubber hand.
Sounds like a great idea, right? Unfortunately, just one look at the video will show you that it not only looks semipainful, but it also doesn’t get the job done. (This is less of a surprise after learning that Gertz — who, by the way, has nearly 170,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel — describes herself as a “Maker/robotics enthusiast/non-engineer. Have become somewhat of an expert in shitty robots.”)
But on the bright side, Simone’s hilarious commentary and the epic fail of the machine had us cracking up from the start — so it’s definitely worth the watch! See it for yourself, below.
