Everybody has to deal with unwanted hair. Shaving is a necessity for most people and it may take a toll on their patience as it often leads to nicks, razor burn and dryness. Good news to those who find shaving an unpleasant thing to do each day as a laser shaver is coming its way to become a reality thanks to two inventors.
Skarp Laser Razor is a new innovation in technology that uses laser instead of blades in every day shaving kits. Morgan Gustavsson invented the IPL (Intense Pulse Light) laser in 1989, reports Business Insider. Until now, it is being used for hair removal treatments but he wants to create something that uses laser and can be used by people in their daily lives.
However, it was discovered that his invention could cut through dark or black hair but has difficulty cutting gray hair. It became a daunting task for him until he discovered a part of a hair or chromophore that all humans possess. His partner, Paul Binun, says that a certain wavelength of light or laser could cut through this part of the hair.
According to CNET, the partners are now trying to build a Kickstarter campaign to help them push through with their design and make it into a reality. Up to date, it already made more than four times its expected donations reaching approximately $650,000.
Skarp razor is expected to cost around $159 each by March 2016. This device can be used on any part of the body and can be used by both men and women. With the funds from pledges on hand, they can now start designing the shaver of the future and those who are waiting for it can see the actual product early next year to determine if it will live up to their expectations.
