    I believe the vaping attachment is a rumored future expansion pack on their next razor.

    Right - runs off of the same battery as the vibrating function.

    I will be the one to go out on a limb here, but I think its either going to be a remake of the slim or SS....I remember before the tech came out I was told (could be false) that they were planing/hoping to to remake 4 of the vintage DE's...the tech was 1st, then I feel like it was the slim/SS and last being the FB...Im just guessing though and I cant back that up with anything solid.

    And it's rechargeable because that would be environmentally friendly

    Check the date on the OP and it was March 2016. It's now April 2017. It's been all talk and no Tech. I will believe it when/if I see it. And furthermore there are dozens of 3 piece DE razors on the market. A reissue of a Tech (if that is the "surprise") won't make much of a splash. Even if it was a Gillette.

    Probably but 4 blades like in the pic will be peanuts, at least 8 blades. One pass only = whiskers will be gone, Disclaimer: Gillette will not be responsible for any dislocated jaws.

    If it's done right, it'll even pull out those annoying nose and ear hairs!

    I'm looking forward to the modern DE Gillette if it does exist. They are a year behind schedule from when the rumor started, if it is just a fat handle Tech it shouldn't be that hard to get to market.

    Now that would be awesome. A new Zamak Tech, sold only at AOS at an astronomical price, and only accepts proprietary blades manufactured by Gillette.
