You're Going To Want A Laser Razor

Finally, someone has managed to upgrade the razor - and not by adding a sixth blade.

Infuriatingly expensive to replace, hugely wasteful and often painful, the Skarp razor proposes bringing shaving into the 21st century in a suitably sci-fi way. With lasers.

While running a laser beam over your face might sound even more deadly than using a sharpened blade, the Skarp is safer than it sounds. 

The laser in question transmits along an exact light wavelength that is absorbed by chromophore in human hair. By taking in this intense amount of light, it essentially 'frazzles' the hair, giving a close, cut-free shave. It'll just need plugging in for a recharge every so often.

So no razor burn, no need for "before shave" and "after shave" creams, washes and scrubs and no more blade replacements. If Skarp catches on (commercially, not on your skin), it could spell doom many products in the male grooming industry. 

Set to arrive on sales in March 2016, you can put in an order for a Skarp via its (smashed) Kickstarter funding page. Expect it to cost in the region of £100.

No more bathroom arguments after you find your other half using your disposable on her "tricky ankle region".
