Chip & Clip — 'At last it is possible to have your hair cut over the internet!'

Ipipoipvcv

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto.

But I digress.

"Utilising pin numbers and a hairstyle code (from chip&clip.com), the head is scanned and mapped. The hair is then "Van de Graaffed" to the perpendicular — not an unpleasant sensation — before an array of electric clippers administers the selected cut. The entire operation takes no more than four minutes, including the emptying of the tonsorial detritus via a detachable receptacle."

The first cut is the deepest.
