Skarp Laser Razor

The shaver isn’t typically something that sees a lot of mind-blowing innovation. While most razor companies try to make the smallest and manliest-looking shaver on the market, Skarp Technologies is looking to change the market entirely with a laser-powered razor.

The Skarp Laser Razor sounds like something straight out of Star Trek the Next Generation, but this razor really cuts your hair entirely without the use of a blade. That means there are no scratches, no razor burn, no itchiness and no accidental cutting. Most importantly, it will reduce the amount of disposable plastic razors that are thrown away (two billion razors are thrown away in the US alone). The laser has a life of 50,000 hours, and is powered by a single AAA that lasts about a month with normal use. It doesn’t require the use of water (although it can be used with water just fine). They’re built out of aluminum, with a thin hair-cutting laser where a blade would typically be. It’s available on Kickstarter now for $159 to early backers. [Purchase]
