two Swedes... ...have built a consumer razor that shaves your hair with an actual laser

claim to have discovered a chromophore (part of a hair molecule) that is shared by all humans, and can be cut easily when hit with a particular wavelength of light

Simply wave the Skarp razor over your body, like a magic wand, and the hairs will just fall away.
Or at least that’s the claim.

I found this earlier today and was rather excited at the thought of no longer having to have any sort of razor burn or irritation. Two guys claim to have invented a laser razor that shaves hair with no pain or irritation... but is it real? What is real is talk of it being a scam.
What do you guys think? Is a laser razor possible? Will we be able to go to the local store and pick one up off the shelf? I'll wait til then, but I do have my hopes.

I am waiting for the triple-laser-blade to come out before I commit.

I was excited as well and almost threw my money at them. Then started reading elsewhere how it might be a scam, or might not be able to do what they're claiming it can do.

Therefore, I'm going to remain skeptical until we get some real working models, and independent people are testing it and confirming that it works.

This would be awesome as I have to shave every day. The military wants a smooth baby face and razors, no matter how well designed, tend to be extremely irritating.

Seems Mr. Gillette was also busy scouring the forums.

Great, let some kids get hold of this and shave off the hair of the girls sitting in front of them in class. Or drunks in a bar can have a lasershaver duel with the other patrons ducking and dodging around them. Or if someone with big hair sits down in front of you in a theater.....

The only person who doesn't need to worry is Sinead O'Connor.

They already have this in the states. My girlfriend wants me to get my back done but I'm not paying $2000 when she can shave me for free

That would be great for us ladies too, if it works.

Gilette Fusion. The one that comes with the battery,and quad blade pack or triple.

IMO one of the BEST razors on the market.

Best tips for shaving.

GEL not foam.

Turn the water on HOT as one can stand it.

Take a wash cloth and soak it.

Put on the face like they use to do in the old west.

Wait a minute or two to let the heat open up the pores.

Lather up.

Shave.

I wonder what it does to your skin not just in the short term but also what about long term exposure??

Cancer perhaps? premature aging on the skin perhaps?

I've been doing something for 40 odd years which is very mundane now. I wish there was some other way to do it.

brushing my teeth.

It's not actually a laser, but intense pulsed light:

i100.independent.co.uk...

You have a large number of small LED's. Close up the intensity of light is enough to vaporize the hair strands. But further away, with the inverse squared distance law, the intensity of light is reduced to harmless levels.
