What do you guys think of this?

Are the selling snake oil or is it really possible to put such a powerful laser in such small package?

BulletMagnet83:
I also have to wonder if a laser powerful enough to shave with could be considered eye-safe? I mean... if you're supposed to point it at your face, they better have some sort of safety interlock in the "blade".

As a bald dude, I want to believe... being able to laser-polish my melon would be awesome. But I'm just not quite convinced.

Wrong question. The right question is "would the product be safe and obtain regulatory approval?".

firewalker:
Isn;t mandatory for KickStarter to ha e a working prototype of some kind?

I think this is another "mu thermal camera" type project.

wraper:
If it is powerful enough to burn the hair, it is powerful enough to burn the skin too. Extremely dangerous to the eyes too. It would never pass safety approvals. Blatant scam. Regarding to the power, it's not even focused in one point but rather wide line, so no way a laser powerful enough + batteries required would fit in this size. Also imagine the smell of burned hair when shaving  :).
