In a publicity stunt to raise funds for cancer research, Intelligent Automation Inc. somehow convinced this poor guy to get his head shaved—by their multi-arm unmanned ground vehicle. A proposition more terrifying than Sweeney Todd giving him a trim.
The company also concocted the stunt to show off the dexterity of its tri-armed articulated robot designed for remotely dealing with IEDs, handling tools, and inspections. But as the razor duct-taped to the end of its arm—and the video—clearly illustrate, cutting hair should be at the bottom of the feature list when IAI designs the brochure. [Automaton]
