A close and comfortable shave has been the guiding force behind vibrating handles, countless blade additions, and just about every “innovation” in men’s razors. But the latest claim, which comes from The Skarp Razor, is the craziest yet. The Skarp Razor, which is currently on Kickstarter, delivers a scratch- and burn-free shave courtesy of a laser beam. Yes, it’s a razor with a freakin’ laser beam attached to its head. When hairs are hit with the light emitted upon contact, they get cut down smoothly across the surface of your face. And if it lives up to its claims, the Skarp Razor will eliminate expensive cartridge purchases, accidental nicks and cuts, and all the irritation that can come with stubble removal.
Update: Kickstarter has pulled the project for failing to provide a working prototype. The company still believes in their laser razor, however, and have since launched it on Indiegogo.
