Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

If there’s one thing that I wouldn’t want a robot to do, it’s to wash my hair before getting a haircut. But that didn’t stop Panasonic [JP] from making a hair washing robot, that hopefully won’t…
