Well, despite being one of the most questioned projects, the Skarp Lazer Razor has secured over $412,000 and has joined Indiegogo InDemand.
Skarp, which originally launched on Kickstarter last month, uses lasers to clip the unwanted hair. The creators (Skarp Technologies) promise an irritation free and incredibly close shave. All with a high-tech device that will last for years – not days. The razor uses a light wavelength that is absorbed by hair. Regardless of color, the product promises a clean shave even without water.
After securing $4 million, Kickstarter pulled the plug on the now infamous project because the project was in violation of the platform’s terms of operation, as it lacked a working prototype. As the campaign became more popular, some observers questioned how legit the razor really was.
During a recent update, Skarp Technologies revealed why the Indiegogo campaign was only two weeks instead of being the same amount of time as the original initiative:
“Some have asked why our campaign was only two weeks on Indiegogo. The reason is we didn’t want to delay the start of production. We had our manufacturing timeline set & any more delays would have had a knock on effect.”
“We will be doing Indiegogo’s InDemand program, so those that missed the campaign deadline will still be able to pre-order a Skarp Razor for delivery after March 2016.”
The company added that the extra week on Indiegogo will not affect its schedule delivery for March 2016.
