Face Massage Robot

Japanese scientists had just unveiled this robot which purpose is ... to massage your face!

Equipped with two 50-cm (20-inch) arms that protrude from a chair-sized aluminum box, WAO-1 performs massages by pressing the patient’s face from both sides. Each arm’s position and angle can be precisely controlled, as can the direction of the pressure applied to the face. WAO-1 also relies on a complex system of software and fuses to ensure the pressure does not exceed a certain level, and it is equipped with a “torque limiter function” that allows the arms to bend back should the robot begin to exert too much force.

Torque limiter function. Complex system of software. Squeezed in the face by robots. Suuuuure - but you go first! Link - via jwz

I had the same thought as William. It's like a bad science fiction movie. The first step to robots taking over the world? Crushing all the faces of women who were unwise enough to strap themselves into this contraption!
