Make sure youre comfortable, because this video from Glam, starring model Matty Watts, will surely leave you breathless.
Weve always had an interest in mens fashion and erm… history… but we didnt appreciate just how gripping 100 years of mens swimwear would be:
From this extreme in the 1910s…
To this in 1935. Could it get any tinier?
I mean, were not complaining as such.
Who loves short-shorts?
We wouldnt expect anything less from the 70s.
Ah, sweet 90s. All modesty, Hawaiian flowers, and drawstrings.
OH, YES. Now this is what were talking about. And were referring to the design, obviously.
STOCKHOLM (Web Desk) Thanks to a couple of Swedish entrepreneurs, it might soon be possible to get a clean shave without the little nicks and cuts. Theyve done away with blades in their new invention Skarp, a futuristic razor that magically makes hair fall away when waved over skin!
Well, its not exactly magic. Skarp uses laser beams to assist in hair removal, the Oddity Central reported.
The concept isnt new, lasers have been used to eliminate body hair cosmetically and medically since 1989, when Morgan Gustavsson invented the IPL (Intense Pulse Light).
He also wanted to bring lasers into everyday hair removal, but he couldnt really do it before because the wavelengths could only cut through dark hair, not light or grey hair.
But now, Morgan and his partner Paul Binun claim to have discovered a part of hair molecules called chromophore shared by all humans irrespective of hair color.
Chromophores can be cut easily with a particular wavelength of light. So they used the discovery to develop a commercial laser razor that can be used on any part of the body, by men and women.
Skarp is currently being funded through Kickstarter, where its being marketed as the first ever razor, powered by a laser, for an irritation free, incredibly close shave.
The page states: At first glance, the Skarp Razor looks like a traditional razor. But that is where the similarity ends. The Skarp razor is powered by a small laser which cuts through hair for an incredibly close shave without irritating or damaging the skin.
2 billion razors or razor heads are thrown away each year in the US alone, the makers added. Due to the hazardous nature of the blades, they cant be sorted no individual municipality or district produces enough to make specialized collection cost effective. So they end up in landfills & garbage dumps.
All that can be avoided with Skarp, which doesnt even need water to function.
Skarp has become immensely popular even before it has hit the markets. The campaign has surpassed its goal of $160,000 and has now amassed over $2 million, with over 10,000 backers!
Sounds like trouble for conventional razor companies… It already looks like someone is trying to boycott the Skarp project. There is a video doing the rounds online of a Skarp lookalike that doesnt seem to be doing a terribly good job of shaving a few strands of hair on a persons hand. However, the video was called out as a hoax, as its pretty obvious that instead of a laser beam, it is using a heated wire to burn the hair.
