As a guy who shaves his head in addition to his face (minus ye’ old goatee), I am very fond of the Gillette Mach 3 Turbo that cuts the stubble from my skin. So, the recent announcement from that same company has me intrigued to say the least. The newest extension of their Mach 3 product line has a battery powered motor in it which supposedly hums, causing the skin to contract, which in turn forces all of the hair in that area to stand on end, thus providing a higher likelihood that every hair will be cut the first time the blade slides across the stubble.
I can’t wait to actually see one of these and hear how well they perform. A closer shave in less time is always a good thing in my book. And for now, this is the closest I will get to an electric razor.
CNN has more info in their story “Gillette: New disposable razor hums, makes hair stand on end“.
