The busy urban professional hurries to and from many meatings while juggling cellphone, blackberry and laptop.

The professional needs to look his best for his important meeting -- but who has time for grooming?

Enter the TaxiCut, a get your hair cut done while you're taking the 10 minute ride downtown. Using automated haircut devices such as the Flowbee in the back sit, the entire procedure is simple and sanitary.

       The flowbee is safe enough for children, as they advertise it

       Umm...that looks eerily similar to the hairvac from one of the Wayne's World movies (forget which.)

       Can they handle my 1040 return on the way back?

       I'm tearing my hair out trying to understand why this idea is so unpopular

       [tc] - offer a coffee with the haircut. (Noone ever bones coffee ideas.)   

       +, so long as I don't accidentally catch one of these.

       Nick, thats the suck-kut from wayne's world 1 (better known as just wayne's world).
And like this idea, it certainly does suck...

       Well, not exactly what I had in mind - but hey, it is a ride, and they do cut your hair

       What you need is an array of 17 Flowbees under CNC control. Upload your file; haircut in 12 seconds follows.   

       Alternatively, have one of those helmet things they have at hairdressers, but designed to suck, and with 17 cutter heads inside. That would save on piping, so it's uglier; but I think it may be more practical.
