For everyone tired of suffering through the excruciating everyday experience that is washing your own hair, a dedicated amateur inventor from Sichuan has discovered the perfect solution for you. The future is now!
Chen Gongke’s magical machine is able to give your hair a wash and dry it down in a mere 5 minutes without you so much as moving a muscle.
What takes 5 minutes to work actually took Chen 16 years to complete. In all, he went through 18 different helmet designs before finally settling on the complex masterwork you see pictured above.
Not only does it wash AND dry, Chen’s life’s work also gives your scalp a relaxing massage for no extra charge.
According to NetEase, the contraption has been awarded a patent. It uses a motorcycle helmet, two water tanks and an old-school control pad that controls the various functions.
Chen said he was inspired by watching his paralyzed grandmother struggle to wash her own hair. So, bravo! This is one of the more unique as well as thoughtful inventions we’ve seen from a Chinese amateur inventor since at least the kidney stone removing bed, maybe even the suitcase scooter.
