In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s incredibly easy to rush during a morning shave and cut oneself. The traditional razor is functional but the design remains relatively unaltered. Despite this, the engineering team at Skarp have constructed a revolutionary razor which cuts hair without any blades. The high-tech design uses a laser to carefully remove hairs from your skin in a more precise manner. Additionally, the laser has a lifespan in excess of 50,00 hours and powered by a single AAA battery which lasts around a month.
The Skarp Laser Razor is environmentally friendly and significantly reduces the build up of plastic from disposable razors. However, the product doesn’t come cheap and currently costs $159.99 to early backers. I dread to think what the retail price would be but there is some value when you consider the cost of replacement blades. I’m quite fond of the sleek, aluminum design but feel the price is way too much to become a mainstream success story.
There is certainly scope to use this technology in the future, but I’m not convinced consumers will feel comfortable using lasers on their skin.
What do you think of the Skarp Laser Razor?
