Xiaomi Brings USB-C Charging To Men’s Portable Electric Shaver For Just $27

Xiaomi may have built its name in copying products of some of the more established brands, but there’s no denying the company is trying its best to innovate. One of such example of the company’s innovation would be this shaver under the company’s sub-brand, Mijia. If I am not wrong, this is the first electric shaver from the brand. Now, a shaver by itself is clearly nothing new, but what makes Mijia Portable Electric Shaver so special is not just the Xiaomi’s now signature minimalistic design; it is probably the first electric shaver in the market to tout recharging via USB-C. Yup. USB-C has arrived to shaver. So, I guess it is a ‘yay’? Maybe? Continue reading Xiaomi Brings USB-C Charging To Men’s Portable Electric Shaver For Just $27

This Smart Makeup Mirror Auto Adjust The Light To Achieve ‘True Light’

Unfortunately, not everything in life is WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). Makeup is one of them. How? Because, lighting. Don’t get it? Think of its as a computer monitor color calibration.

Onsen Bath Towel Says Bye To Mustiness, Hello To Quick Drying

Bath towel is a thing that you grab off the shelves of supermarket, or stores like Bed Bath and Beyond, without much of a thought. Anyways, regardless of where you acquire it, I am sure you face the same problems many of us faces with bath towel: drying – both you and itself after used. The latter is perhaps the worst because a hard-to-dry towel can turn musky pretty quick and bad smell, as some science tells us, more often than not, is associated with bacteria growth, and surely, no one wants to spread bacteria all over his or her body, right? Well, neither does Shane, who sets out to develop a bath towel that readily picks up water from your body and dries itself easily too.

The World’s First Smart Hairbrush Tells You What’s Going With Your Hair

The mere act of brushing your hair does nothing but, well, brushes and possibly, make your lock looks a lot better than just-woke-up condition. Unless you visit a trichologist, you won’t know your mane’s well-being (yes, we said ‘well-being’), but what if, you can know your hair more intimately simply through your daily brushing routine? Well, folks, believe it or not, that’s exactly what Kérastase Hair Coach Smart Hairbrush Powered by Withings offers to do. Yes. Yes. The concept of smart has come to the least of things you expect: a hairbrush and being smart and app-connected, you can expect nothing less than a wealth of information you probably didn’t know you need.

“Second Skin” Is Possibly The Closest Thing You Will Get To Elixir of Youth

These days photos lie. The advancement in imaging hardware and software allows us to beautify our photos even as we are taking the photo and as a result, photos may not be the most accurate representation of the real person. Just think of girls with skilfully applied makeup (which probably took hours to complete) and you will know what we mean. So far, the ‘misrepresentation’ is limited to digital images, but a new joint development by scientists at MIT, Massachusetts General Hospital, Living Proof, and Olivo Labs may soon enable a wrinkle-loaded person fool you into believing he or she is 10 or more years younger then they really are. Continue reading “Second Skin” Is Possibly The Closest Thing You Will Get To Elixir of Youth

KFC-flavored Nail Polish: Now, That’s Literally Finger Lickin’ Good!

I remember when I was younger, KFC used to serve fried chickens with real plates and proper cutlery (yes, I am that old). In the early years, the management decided to dispense with the formality and took on the disposable route, which kind of makes sense as one of its very first and arguably most recognizable slogan was “Finger Lickin’ Good.” The slogan was dropped, picked up, dropped, made a comeback and eventually dropped again. Notwithstanding, the slogan is what most people associate KFC with and as it turns out, KFC Hong Kong is not only still using the slogan, but it has taken the concept of “Finger Lickin’ Good” to a whole new level with edible nail polish that tastes like, well, KFC fried chicken, of course. And yes, it is a real thing. Continue reading KFC-flavored Nail Polish: Now, That’s Literally Finger Lickin’ Good!

Dyson Shrank Air Multiplier Tech, Puts It Into A Hair Dryer That Costs $400

If anything, Dyson is to home appliance as Apple is to personal computer. The British company is much like the Apple in late 90s. It just can’t stop wowing the world with millions of dollars sunk into research and development and mind you, it don’t do it for the sake of doing it; it takes a stab at the heart the problems, however small they are. And today, the investigative minds of the home appliance innovator leads it to hair dryer – a personal grooming device which you never knew needs any further innovation. No. No. You are so wrong. Dyson saw problems in today’s handheld hot-air blowing device and it has Dyson Supersonic to iron those issues out.

Shaving Goes High-tech with Laser Beam-equipped Skarp Razor

It is not fair to say there aren’t any innovation in razors; there are, but none of those are as mind-blowing as what you about to read about. Which brings us to this question: how does laser, instead of steel blades, for mowing down your facial hair sounds to you? High-tech? And perhaps, a little dangerous? Thanks to Hollywood’s portrayal of limb-cutting “security trip wires”? Well, don’t let those and the fictional Stark Industries’s “arc reactor” powered variety scare you off because Skarp Laser Razor is a real razor that uses special laser that promised to remove your unwanted hairs without nicking your skin, nor will it inflict razor burn or cause infection – unless you are one of those rare beings who happen to be “allergic” to laser, or technology in general.
