Razorius Gilletus Gold Plastic

March 3rd 2014

Regular readers of this blog know we are closely monitoring razor technology as a symbol of our co-evolutionary relationship with technology. This basically means that, like the bees and the flowers, people and technology are caught in a relationship of mutual dependence: we serve our technology as much as it serves us. And just like humans, technology wants to prosper, propagate and grow.

The latest species in the Razorius line is the Razorius Gilletus Gold Plastic. Like the exorbitant feathers of the peacock, which only function is to aesthetically stand out amid its competitors, this new species of Razorius Gilletus only differs from its predecessor with a thin layer of gold paint on its plastic body.

Whereas earlier models distinguished themselves with added blades or aloe strips, this recent model only differs aesthetically from earlier species. Anyhow, this might just be as effective in standing out amidst the other species in the shelves, as functional differences.

We are eagerly awaiting what the next phase of evolution for the Razorius Gilletus species will be. More blades? Platinum? Nanoshave? WiFi connected? If you have any ideas, visions or expectations you want to share, please use the good old fashioned comment box below.

I'm thinking ceramic blades (many of them!), carbon or titanium grips for the sporty shaver and strass-stone decore for the style-savvy!

I think it will get bluetooth, just like the tooth brush ;)

Don't know how many blades this specimen has, but it obviously needs more. More blades is the way forward.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
