Futuristic Razor Allows You To Shave With A Laser
By Kirsten Cowart
Shaving has been pretty much the same for hundreds of years. The only big changes have been the number of blades and types of shaving gel or cream that we use.
The occasional cut, itchiness or burn are things that are unavoidable, regardless of the type of razor you use.
However, two Swedish inventors feel that they have recently solved these common issues.
The Bladeless Laser Razor
This interesting new bladeless razor is made out of aluminum and will last up to 50,000 hours. Can you imagine having a razor that didn’t need to be replaced for several years? I don’t even know if we shave that much in 20 years.
The creators say that this razor will be usable by both men and women and can be used on any part of the body. The difference between this laser razor and other similar models is that it doesn’t emit UV rays, so it will not affect the skin or cause permanent hair removal.
Back in 1989, inventor Morgan Gustavsson invented the IPL or Intense Pulse Light. He worked hard to try and find a way to shave both dark and light colored hair. After teaming up with Paul Binun, they were able to find a specific wavelength of light that can hit any type of hair.
Phasing Out Bladed Razors, Saving Money And Helping The Environment
Now the inventors are trying to phase out the old fashioned bladed razor by mass marketing their new laser razor that they have decided to call “Skarp.”
With the high price of disposable razor blades and pollution from trash building up in this world, this may be a safe and effective way to save money, minimize excessive water usage, reduce waste and protect the environment.
This blade may also help you recover from various skin conditions that come from the inconvenience of metal blade shaving.
The inventors are hoping to kick off the market by March 2016 and be selling the blades for around $159. Though it may seem like a lot up front, the long-term benefits and savings should be more than worth it.
