The first laser-powered razor for that irritation-free close, smooth shave

The first laser-powered razor for that irritation-free close, smooth shave

Early birds supporting the project on Kickstarter could get a unit of the Skart razor for as low as $89.

We may have different technologies powering our razors and shavers, but this seems to be the one that could probably give us a shaving experience that we have been looking for.

Claimed to be the first-of-its-type, this new razor is powered by a laser technology and is claimed to have an irritation free close shave. Named Skarp, the new razor looks like a traditional razor, but that is where the similarity ends.

The Skarp razor is powered by a small laser which cuts through hair for an incredibly close shave - free from scratches, cuts, burns, itches, and irritation. the The laser powering the razor is said to have a life of 50,000 hours and is safe to eyes.

"The wavelength we're using doesn't emit UV. The power of the laser is too low to cause damage. But more importantly, the laser doesn't enter the skin, it only enters the hair. So there is absolutely no risk of developing any complications or damage," says the Skarp page on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter.

Early birds supporting the project on Kickstarter could get a unit of the Skart razor for as low as $89.

The Skarp Razor uses a single AAA that will last about a month with normal use. The Skarp Razor doesn't require any water and is also waterproof. So, there is no problem in using it in the shower.

Morgan Gustavsson, one of the creators of the Skarp razor, had the idea for a Laser razor in 2001. However the laser technology at the time was not available. He soon realized that his idea was a little ahead of its time. He spent the next decade investigating and made a breakthrough in 2009 with a wavelength that could cut any colour hair. In 2013 Paul Binun joined him and a working solution was developed, says the Skarp page.

This promising razor is in the beginning stages of manufacturing, and that is why its creators seek your support. You can go here and back the project.
