[half] was spot on when he wrote of the
difficulties of the perfect shave. To quote :
... it may take many passes over the same
area to accomplish a close shave. Once the
area is clean, there's no point in
continuing to work on that area, but it's
tough to tell when you're done, so extra
time may be taken in that area.
[half]'s tactile razor is one potential
solution and I now present another.
Additional circuitry is added to your
electric shaver or battery operated wet
shave razor. This buzzer circuit uses your
wet skin to close the loop.
A perfect connection betwix skin and
razor indicates a perfectly smooth,
stubble-free surface which produces no
sound. The rougher the skin, the worse
the connection, the louder the noise.
Shave a spot until you can't hear it. An
audibly cleaner shave.

||I liked it so much I bought the company.
err- couldn't what you've suggested be achieved with a microphone close to the cutting edge ?
||yes, of course, but that would be an unnecessarily simple solution.
||What about a blood curdling screaming sound when you connect with the longer hairs.
||I like this. Now make an electric shaver that shaves properly and you're done.
||[wagster], with a microphone, it needn't
ben an electic razor (indeed that would
be less than preferably).
