An inventor in China has gone viral on social media after creating a hair washing machine that forces users to go upside down if they actually want to see it work.
The inventor, who goes by the moniker “Handyman Di” (手工耿) on Weibo, demonstrated the efficiency of his machine in a video posted last week.
According to Di, washing hair the traditional way is not only time- and energy-consuming, but also damaging when too much force is exerted.
For this reason, he came up with the next-level hair washing machine, an automated apparatus composed of a reclining bed and the actual washer.
The machine may appear complicated to use, but as Di shows, automation is behind its supposed “convenience.”
First, he positions himself on the bed, clips his nose and bites on a plastic tube to allow himself to breathe underwater.
After Di lies down, the bed inclines to a full 90 degrees with his head below his feet.
Water then fills the washing machine, which is basically a tank with a turbine at the bottom.
Shortly, the machine starts to wash his long locks.
After a few minutes, the water drains.
Interestingly, the machine also comes with a blow dryer, which completes the experience.
Di claims that his hair has become “clean and soft” after the session.
The video has garnered some 23 million views since its posting, with many joking about his hardcore invention:
“This qualifies for a torture equipment series.”
“And what happens when there’s power outage?”
“Add shampoo and this makes a perfect torture device.”
“[It’s more like] homemade inverted brainwashing machine.”
“You can actually look at your phone while you wash your hair.”
