Not long ago we ran a piece on Nissan’s door slamming robot, Rosie. Today, we’re looking at a miniature car wash. Although it doesn’t have a name, with its bright blue bristles and the way it attempts to devour whatever is put in front of it, the folks at Nissan’s Technical Centre should call it Cookie Monster. Like Rosie, Cookie Monster’s only goal is to test the toughness of your car, in this case: the finish of your paint job.
