    I fell in love.
    For now, it's platonic love being an idea.
    But this Marquess Razors is a nice idea.

    Another gimmick done many times before. They'd probably have more success making a ladies shaver with a slightly larger handle :D. Why do they have to put LED lights on the thing? You know when it is on by the vibration.

    Yeah and no microphones or cloud capabilities so everyone in big tech and the govt. can know what I am doing in the bathroom.

    It also needs a flash drive so I can listen to my Tunes while I shave.

    What I see:
    • balanced geometry
    • anodized Aluminium
    • USB vibration
    And I like It.

    I like the idea of using high tech to make low tech things.

    Ball bearings could be useful in a razor. Spring loaded detents to push on the blade or used in quick disconnects... I'll have to think about this. Tagging @twhite

    Always down for a challenge. Impossible, I laugh at that. Not really but it does get my inspiration going.

    Like a quick disconnect handle that'll use different types of heads?

    More like you push a button on the wrench to get the socket off (on better sets, anyways). I've always found it a bit odd that modern stainless razors still use screw threads to fasten the head to the handle. Seems archaic.

    Edit: it's one of the many reasons I like the Cooper MonoBilt. It has a very simple mechanism to lock the head in place, while still retaining a bit of adjustability.
    Edit 2: As for the push on the blade thing I mentioned...
    If a person was able to put a series of spring loaded ball bearings in the baseplate, they could act as a pressure plate to keep the head floating. There wouldn't be much adjustability there, but for a razor, you don't need much.

    I don't know about the touch sensor and vibration aspects of the Marquess razor, but I do support the spring loaded locking system. It's past time that something like that was used in a razor.

    I've always wanted to see someone make a handle with a quick disconnect and adapters made to fit different heads.

    Does seem a might too techy but the spring loaded head looks like something that might work. Standard de heads seem to be a touch finicky to load and get perfect consistency from one blade load to another. The spring idea could help with that problem and maybe give a bit more blade bend which I personally like...

    I voted no, not that I dislike it or anything but shaving is hard enough to learn and stay consistent so adding tech only ups the chance of messing up the shave. Also, modern razors aren't inexpensive either and tossing tech that may not necessarily be needed into them will only up the price, not to mention add a point of failure that isn't there on non-tech'd razors.

    Two point.
    Well done.

    Actually I think most of "artisanal" high-end jewel-like razors are not best choice for newbies.
    Specially with techy geek oriented features, needing a careful maintenance.
