THE interwebs are abuzz - this time, literally - with excitement after a video surfaced yesterday of a man who claims to have developed a "shaving helmet".
The aptly titled "Shaving Helmet" featured on YouTube has been picked up by hundreds of tech and media sites such as Huffington Post, Wired and Gizmodo.
The device does exactly what it says - put it on and it automatically (or as one site put it, “automagically”) shaves your head for you.
But before you get all excited, it is highly unlikely that the helmet will work the way it appears to in the video.
The helmet has been fitted with four razors which sit on aluminium rails and are powered by two motors which are fixed on either side of the helmet.
A tube of shaving gel attached to the back of the helmet automatically injects into the helmet for the duration of the shave (approximately 15 seconds).

Man that'd be rad if it were real. I wonder how you'd clean it? I guess remove the blades and wash em all or something.

Most likely fake — this is viral marketing for some other shaving-related product or something.

Well...

There's 4 blades and if you look at the tracks inside the helmet you can see that there's no way for the blades to shave around your ears, or even close to them + add the space between the razors which would give you corn rows (basically) and logic will tell you that they pulled the ol' switcharoo. Possibly a twin or a clever edit.

Well the dude who is talking about the helmet is holding a headblade in that video, so if it's viral marketing for anything, it's headblade.

This always astounds me. Some bullshit video goes up and people post responses like "Most likely fake" or "I doubt it's real but.."

OF COURSE IT'S FUCKING FAKE. Just think for one second of the engineering that would need to go into a device that could go on any persons head and shave them correctly. That's straight up Star Trek shit.

Not to mention the safety and legal ramifications of manufacturing such a device.

It's like that stupid video that showed "3D without glasses" with the guys eyes blinking to simulate 3D. Even that video got tons of "Is this real?!?!?!111" responses when it couldn't have more obviously been a joke.

FFS.
