Innovation, Have You Forgotten Beardovation?

By 4. november 2013Opinions

Each year, there is an organization named Movember that happens. If you are unaware of what it is, the short rundown is that a bunch of men shaves their beard so they can, for some months, save up for a moustache – giving focus toward men’s health. More importantly (at least for this article), a lot of shaving happens in this period.

I am a self proclaimed beard lover. Although I do not possess a long and mighty beard, I have over time grown a pretty decent one. I like it, because like most other beard lovers, it makes me both more smashing and masculine at the same time. What I don’t like is the shaving part and this is the part where innovation has failed big time.

Me, worried, because I need to shave soon

Every time I shave with a machine, there is hair everywhere. Little, sticky hair that just won’t go away. Where innovation has blossomed in some areas, shaving hasn’t really changed as a whole since around 3000 BC when copper tools was developed. The major difference is probably just less blood and pain, but still as much hair on the floor.

I think it’s mighty time to gather our knowledge and finally resolve this issue that, really, affects the whole world.

Dear Innovators, here are some ideas you can freely use:

  • put a vacuum cleaner in my electric shaver
  • use laser to burn off a wanted distance
  • create a mechanic where the shaver scoops the hair in a small container

Stop the pain. Start the innovation.
