Technology Highlight – Virtual Haircut Simulator

A robot research team at Tokyo Institute of Technology has developed a “virtual-reality” based haircut simulation system. The “Air-Hair” system allows you to use a pair of scissors connected to a screen showing the head of an avatar. As you cut the scissors you can cut the virtual hair. A manikin is used as a stand-in for a real person. It’s certainly an interesting experiment, and a first that we’ve seen.
