Ready to shave with lasers?, Ep. 221

Culture
Hey guys, my name is Steven Beecham, and this is what's happening this week on CNET's [UNKNOWN] blog. [INAUDIBLE]. Have you owned a pair of VR goggles. You might want to get an MPI Cablerobot simulator to go along with you're VR experience. The MPI Cablerobot simulator consists of a carbon fiber roll cage suspended in the middle of a large room by. Cables, which are manipulated by powerful motors to move a person sitting inside the cage around the room as if they were in a virtual reality automobile. The cable robot is being developed in Bingen, Germany by a group of researchers from the max Blank institute for biological cybernetics and was recently on display at the driving simulation conference and exhibition. Obviously, the large VR device can be used for driving and flying simulators, but it can also be used for a wide variety of virtual reality applications that we probably haven't even thought of yet. The system has wireless VR capabilities using a head mounted display with an optical tracking system so the computer knows where you're looking in relation to the cable robot as you positioned in the room. Researchers believe that the device can be used not only for driving and flying simulations But could also be used to study motion perception and neurological studies such as balance disorders. Recently craved published this story about Pepper the emotional robot and how customers wanting to purchased Pepper had to agree not to have sex with him. Well we conducted a quick survey and on CNET.com 60% of you said, "Yay," Should humans have sex with robots? And on YouTube, 100% of you said Yay. Let's have sex with robots. So thank you very much for voting. If you're a guy who hates shaving his face like me, I'm happy to introduce the "Skarp" razor laser from Skarp Technology, which claims to shave your face with lasers. According to the product video, Skarp is less irritating than a razor blade because it cuts the hair follicle closer to the skin and flatter on the face than an old-fashioned razor blade, which cuts at an angle and leaves bumps on your skin. The Skarp Laser Razor does not need water and never needs to be replaced. Which is good for the environment and means less waste. The inventors of the Skarp razor discovered a chromophore in human hair that is shared by every human, regardless of age, gender, or race, which can be cut when applying a certain Certain wavelengths of light. Chromophores are particles that absorb certain wavelengths of light. This discovery led the creators to build a prototype of the Skarp Laser Razor, which is now raising funds on Kickstarter, to get the razors into hands, Hairy people's hand everywhere. For the pledge price of $189 you can your own [UNKNOWN] razor laser and the future of shaving. And while I've got you thinking about the future of shaving make sure to checkout CNET's photo gallery of what Star Wars Characters would look like after a clean shave. The photo-shopped images were produced by West Coast shaving who wondered what the iconic characters would look like if they got rid of their famous facial hair. [MUSIC] Alright guys.
