Wind-Up Shaver

Wind-Up Shaver

Another week, another hand-cranked gizmo. Last week we had the wind-up remote control and this week it’s time to take a look at the PowerPlus Piranha wind-up shaver.

No more dead batteries when shaving: just wind it up and the internal dynamo generates energy to shave again. It also comes with an AC-charger, so you can charge it from the mains.

Here’s a video demonstration of the PowerPlus Piranha shaver:

  1. This is a pretty good idea. Especially if you’re a frequent traveler and you either don’t have the right power adapter, or you don’t even have power!
