I’m sure you remember R2-D2’s brief stint as a server on Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge. I bet you’re aware of R2’s fancy-smacy real-world cousin Bar2-D2. But do you know about Ciclope, the hair stylist robot? Hello there, friendly one-eyed comb holder, what are you uh- AHH! ALIVE!
Oh, you pour me haircut coffee. Excellent.
The top of this happy robot holds the tools and “product” for the stylist to easily access, while the “product” is visible to the person getting their hair cut (so that they will want to further stimulate the economy.)
The bottom, (we’ll get to the middle in a sec,) acts as a robot vacuum cleaner when you press the yellow button! This is a totally new idea. There is no such thing as a robot vacuum! What are you talking about. Waste basket built in down there, too.
And then there’s the middle. The glorious middle. The whimsical designer of this robot has dubbed the functionality of this middle as “2nd Level : Entertainment, Customer Cuddling.”* It employs a Nespresso – Krups machine to dispense water or coffee for the waiting customer or the person getting their hair cut.
*ISNT THAT JUST THE CUTEST?
*For those of you at home keeping count: yes, I know this is not an astromech droid. Or maybe I’ve got some info about the way this thing can repair an A-Wing? You never know.
