FDA Gives Robots Permission To Sew Hair On Your Scalp

Balding sucks. But will you trust the machines to repair your scalp? The US Federal Drug Administration does, which is why they approved this piece of robotery to perform hair transplants. It's name is ARTAS, and it lives in your dermatologist's office.

If you have straight hair that's brown or black and you want more if it, you can sit in ARTAS' lap, at which point it will massage your scalp (along with a few "dermal punches" thrown in for good measure). A year later, you'll have a scalp full of healthy hair, or so the story goes. But if we can't trust a robot to throw a damn baseball, should we trust them with our precious hair? [Engadget]
