In case it wasn’t clear enough, the future is now. Skarp Technologies, with a modest fundraising goal of $160,000 for their neato Kickstarter project, has blown off the roof by raising over $2 million for their Skarp Laser Razor.
According to their Kickstarter page, Skarp Technologies claims to have “discovered a chromophore in the hair that would be cut when hit with a particular light wavelength.” (Read here for more on chromophores). Hence the laser in the razor. Awesome.
All I know is that now I absolutely need a laser razor more than I have ever needed anything. Next step, actual human testing in the Simplemost Laser Razor Testing Labs.
