Never Trust a Robot Barber

by Conner Flynn

There’s nothing quite like getting a haircut. First you have some mindless chit-chat with your barber, he snips away, you get a quick powder and your done. It feels good and you look good. It’s a pleasant experience. Unless your barber is a robot. In which case, say goodbye to that lovely head of hair.

This guy from Intelligent Automation Inc. got his haircut by a robot for St. Baldrick’s day, which usually involves completely shaving your head and collecting donations to help fund childhood cancer research. Let’s just say that the robot barber needs to go back to beauty school. At least it didn’t cut his head off.

It looks downright scary to trust your head to a robot and at least now we know that they suck at cutting hair. The chit-chat sucks too. Keep human barbers alive!
