Camera-Equipped Shaver

So you can easily see whatever is about to get shaved

This Idea was inspired by another (linked), and thanks for the shaver category!

The linked Idea also mentions that it can be difficult to use a mirror to see the place that is about to get shaved next. So, I thought, mount a camera on the shaver, and replace the mirror with a monitor screen, which is connected to the camera. What with cameras so small these days, that every smartphone has one (or two!), it should be a simple matter to incorporate one into a shaver, with an appropriate view of the next place on the skin to get shaved.

       Does your personal barber have a problem with their eyesight, [Vern] ?

       Even if a gentleman shaves himself only occasionally or in dire circumstances, he ought to be sufficiently familiar with his own face to be able to navigate around it.   

       Next you'll be proposing some sort of RFID tag to help you find your arse in the dark.

       Another one for the hole in the ground, and an iThing app to compare and differentiate.

       I don't use an electric shaver, preferring a wet shave with real shaving soap (not from a can), a real bristle shaving brush and real razor blades (old-style blades, which are cheaper, longer-lasting and more environmentally friendly than modern "Mach 3" cartridges or similar). However I would be interested in an electric shaver that resembled a miniature combine harvester and which created mini "hay bales" from my hair.

       Some hardware add-on bits and an iPhone app gives you a shaver-equipped camera.
