In a recent video, YouTuber Stuff Made Here demonstrates how to construct a robotic barber.

I’ve seen a lot of bad quarantine haircuts lately. On my daily walks, I’ve seen diagonal bangs, retro bowl cuts, patches of missing hair, and fades that are more fail than fly.

I’ve seen more gray streaks, split ends, tangled messes, and mullets in the past few months than I care to see for the rest of my life.

In a recent video, YouTuber Stuff Made Here demonstrates how to construct a robotic barber. It’s even able to make creepy small talk.
