A shaver is basically a battery or mains power source, a
motor, and a set of blades operating through a grille. Its
something most real men use daily the world over, and a lot
of women too, in certain parts.
An aspect of shaving is that it works better if you can see
where youre going, by
looking in the mirror. This is
time-consuming, and prevents you from walking around
gaining the illusion that youre doing more than one thing
once. Shaving without looking in the mirror feels like
done it correctly, but inevitably, when you look in the
theres areas that could do with attention. Its almost as if
its quite easy to spend the allocated time period that
constitutes proper shaving, but concentrate all the shaving
odd areas that dont show up, leaving the obvious visible
areas relatively less shaved than they would be if you could
see what youre doing.
This invention is a shaver that has a 9 degrees of freedom
of instrumentation: accelerometer, magnetometer, gyro.
Thus, it can tell what actions have occurred and how far
deviate from what constitutes a proper shave for that face.
can also tell despite your moving around from room to room
because youre busy getting ready.
The shaver also has a haptic feedback that pushes your
in the appropriate directions to ensure a fair coverage. The
haptic feedback takes the form of the entire shaver handle,
that is softish and capable of what might be termed as
plasticising forming, in other words, changing shape. So
does the haptic vibrating thing, but also forms into shapes
within the hand, to add to the physical feedback, almost
acting as a guiding hand that your own hand is holding.
Not to be taken internally because shaver.
||You will march out the door cleanshaven but no-one
will notice because all attention will be on your
uncontrolled nose hair insurrection.
||Sounds expensive - can you layout the cost shavings?
||A small quantity of burning butane gas will very effectively
remove all facial hair in a fraction of the time required by
conventional shaving, be it blade or electric, and is very cost-
||I do like the sound of the word 'plasthaptic' - also, a quick check of Google confirms that this is the only place on the entire internet to use the word 'plasthaptic'.
I now expect the 'Computer: Teledildonics' category to rapidly fill up with plasthaptic ideas.
||Yes, I intentionally invented the word plasthaptic
to sound a bit like fantastic.
||Anyone who shaves through a grille shouldn't be surprised when they end up looking like they shaved through a grille.
