Futuristic Laser Technology Comes of Age!

One of the leading Kickstarter ’Best of 2015’ contenders comes hot on the heals of another of our favourite Laser technology executions. Swede Morgan Gustavsson invented IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) back in 1989 - which is today one of the most common methods of hair-removal. The device emits a high intensity light (laser) at just the right wavelength to melt through hair.

 

Since 1989 Morgan has been working on miniaturising the technology so that it can be deployed in a hand-held razor device. The light emitted targets only hair proteins - the skin is entirely unaffected. There is no need for shaving cream / gel or aftershave balm - you get the smoothest, slickest, nick-free shave ever, which should be a major concern for Gilette and Wilkinson Sword. In the words of Apple - ’This Changes Everything’ you know about shaving.

 

The Skarp Laser Razor is hewn out of beautifully stylised aluminium, and can be yours via Kickstarter for the princely sum of $159 (411 pledges at that level currently remaining). Estimated delivery date is March 2016, total raised so far is $1,109,000 which is heading for a million more than the original goal. I will certainly be getting one!

 

 

The other recent major Laser breakthrough comes in the area of Dentistry - where Convergent Dental’s Solea CO2 Laser System revolutionizes your trip to the dentist, by creating a drill which is more precise, painless, and almost soundless. That excruciating high-pitched dentist drill noise is a thing of the past, and this gentler, precision-honed approach should remove a lot of people’s fears and anxieties about visiting their dentist - it makes all the difference to me - I will actively seek out and only go to dentists who have this technology installed.

 

 

Here above is the original promo video for Solea which several of us at Affino love for its simplicity and elegance in communicating its core messages so beautifully.
