You Can Now Get A Close Shave With LASERS


The game of shaving hasn’t changed much in a few thousand years. But in the technological age, isn’t it about time we took a look at that? The Skarp Laser Razor uses a laser to shave. That’s right, a laser! The device itself looks somewhat like a regular razor, but it packs a specially calibrated laser that is able to instantly cut through hair.

Wavelengths of light had already been discovered that could cut through dark hair, but finding a way to cut light hair was proving incredibly difficult.

After years of research & development, the makers discovered a chromophore in the hair that would be cut when hit with a particular light wavelength.

Chromophores are particles that absorb certain wavelengths (colors) of light.

This chromophore they identified is shared by every human, regardless of age, gender or race.

The Skarp Laser Razor promises a close shave, with no scratches, no razor burn, no need for water or shaving cream. You’ll be able to shave at the same speed you always do, and you can even do it in the shower. One AAA battery lasts about one year, and the laser itself has a life of 50,000 hours. It’s low power so it doesn’t present a danger for your eyes and no, it won’t create a burnt smell as it does its thing.

To get your own, you’ll have to pledge $189 and wait until March 2016 for delivery.

Caffeinated Shaving Products Kick Start Your Mornings


Can you even absorb caffeine through your skin? We’re not sure, but we’re going to assume you can because otherwise we’re not sure what the point of this product is. Caffeinated Shaving Cream and After Shave from Pacific Shaving Company are two products that claim to help give your morning a bit of a kickstart thanks to the addition of caffeine to their panoply of other moisturizers, antioxidants, and related ingredients. Apparently caffeine will serve as a vasoconstrictor, tightening your blood vessels and helping your skin look smoother a less red. And yeah, they claim caffeine is indeed absorbed through the skin, although we can’t imagine you’ll be able to replace your morning coffee with your shaving routine anytime soon.

Still, something interesting to try, if only because it’s $16 for the set.

The Woof Washer 360 Helps You Get Your Dog Clean


How hard is it to wash a dog? We really don’t know; sometimes you see videos of them seemingly loving the water, other times they run from it. Whatever the case is with your pooch, the Woof Washer 360 at least tries to make the task easier. It’s a hollow tube filled with holes that connects to your outdoors hose. You then somehow convince your dog to step through it and get washed from every angle. There is a soap attachment, which can be bypassed with a switch when the time comes to rinse.

It seems it might be easier to just convince your dog to be ok being in the tub, but maybe you prefer to do this sort of thing outdoors. Whatever the case, it’s $20 or $25, and comes in a small (40 inches circumference) or large (49 inches circumference) size.

The Selfie Brush Is The Pinnacle Of All That’s Wrong With Humanity


Well, that’s a bit of a hyperbole right there we suppose, especially in light of a rampant ISIS and growing tensions in Eastern Europe… But to find out about the existence of a hairbrush/iPhone case hybrid does sort of highlight where our priorities seem to lie, here in the first world. You can apparently now safely ignore what’s going on in our planet while de-tousling your hair using a brush that also holds your iPhone. Yes, the Selfie Brush even has an integrated mirror, so you can do some final touchups before you go ahead and snap that pic, because well, the front-facing cam on the phone apparently isn’t good enough. Right?

Whether or not this $20 accessory sells is not even the point, now. Someone, somewhere thought it was a good idea to invest some time and money making this, and that alone speaks volumes.

ManScaping 101: The Selective Hair Trimmer

This is a quandary that the more appearance-conscious men among us often face: to keep all body hair on and look like a small gorilla, or shave it all off and look like a pre-pubescent child? This is as polar a topic as the front/rear pocket wallet decision. Or the facial hair decision. Everyone’s got an opinion and few people agree. The Mudage Jolie Body Hair Remover hopes to split the difference and strike a compromise: simply pass it over the hairier parts of your body and it will only remove some hairs, not all. This way, you can have you cake and eat it too. You can keep enough hair to maintain a semblance of masculinity, but remove the excess that makes you look like you stepped out of the Planet of the Apes set.

Unfortunately, this is a Japanese product and is being imported through the always-overpriced JapanTrendShop. So it’ll cost ya $33.
