There are normal razors, electric models, and now Skarp. This futuristic razor has no blade, just a small laser that cuts through hair for an incredibly close shave, with no itching, burns or irritation. They’re made from 6061 aluminum and each laser has a life of 50,000 hours, while being powered by a single AAA battery. According to the company, here’s how it works: “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, they 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.” Click here to view the first image in this week’s funny work pictures gallery.
