Braun Series 9 the Best Electric Shaver

Braun has a great series of men’s cordless electric rechargeable shavers. The Braun Series 9 men’s wet/dry shaving and cleaning system is the best electric shaver offering by Braun, for men who want everything in their shaver. The cleaning system is also billed as the world’s first five-action alcohol-based cleaning and charging station. This shaver has been built with the highest quality that you can expect from the Braun brand. Braun is also the world’s number one foil brand of shavers, and the Braun Series 9-9095cc is the official shaver of the NFL.

The Braun Series 9 can be used wet or dry. Pack it into your briefcase or backpack for a quick shave during the day, or shave in the shower in the morning. You can add shaving creams, gels, lotions, or soap to your shave, so you can get even closer to the base of the whiskers.

The shaver is built with a foil-style shaving head which is what Braun is well-known for. The shaver head has four different components to it, which each offer a specific step in the shaving process. The four different cutting elements are designed to capture different lengths of hair, and even hair that is laying flat against the skin. After one pass you’ll be left with a smooth line of skin.

The first cutting element has cross-cutting actions that are powered by micro-vibrations to grab more hair in the first pass. The second element is a direct and cut trimmer that aligns and snips hair that has been growing in different directions. The third trimmer is a direct and cut trimmer that lifts hairs that are lying flat against the skin. The last trimmer element will provide one final trim.


The Braun Series 9 is built in a sleek shiny dark silver casing. There is a circular on/off switch on the lower front, with an LED readout panel just underneath. The cleaning system is made from black plastic and the shaver fits head side down into it for cleaning, charging, and conditioning.

This shaver has been called the best electric shaver, and is extremely efficient in providing a close smooth shave to stubble, or to an effective smooth clean shave on even beards that are three days old. Its multiple cutting elements will remove more hair in one pass than any other type of shaver. This will allow men to save time in the morning. One pass of the shaver will minimize redness and razor burn that can occur if a man’s shaver needs to be constantly moved back and forth over the same spot again and again.

The cleaning station gives the man an easier way to clean the head of the shaver without having to dig in with a tiny brush to scrape out soap or hair. The station will hygienically clean your shaver with the use of cleaning cartridges much better than simply using tap water. This well ensure your shaver is always sterilized and clean.

The station will also lubricate and charge up your shaver. You can select the cleaning program with a touch of a button. This station will even dry your shaver, which is a lot more than other brand’s of shaver stations can do. There is also extra-fast drying, as the station has a built-in fan. This process is a lot like having a brand new shaver for every day. The station will charge up your shaver to maximum power each time it’s placed inside. The battery will never slow down.


You’ll also notice that your Braun series 9 will feel like new each day, and still provide as comfortable a shave two years from now, as it did on the first day you removed it from the box.

The Braun Series 9 shaver is built with intelligent Syncrosonic technology that enables the shaver to deliver 40,000 cross-cutting actions per minute. This will give a man a faster and more thorough shave, while providing the maximum skin comfort, without nicks, cuts, or pulls.

The Braun series 9 has also been designed with ergonomics in mind. It’s easy to hold in the hands even if you use it in the sink or shower.

The Braun Series 9-9095-cc costs under $300 for both shaver and charging station. Both shaver and charging station weigh about 2.6 pounds. The shaver itself measures 6.1 x 2.7 x 8.7 inches.

Braun believes in making excellent personal care products so that they can make a difference in a person’s life. You’ll enjoy the convenience and close smooth shave that the Braun Series 9 men’s shaver will give your face. It may be a bit pricy, but definitely the best electric shaver out there!

Flying Robots May Soon Beat the Best Vacuum Cleaner

Flying Robots May Soon Beat the Best Vacuum Cleaner

It was only a matter of time before something crossed a drone with a vacuum cleaner. After all, drones can record photographs and video, while a robotic vacuum cleaner can clean a entire home for us. It stands to reason that soon robotic vacuum cleaners will fly around our homes, vacuuming up dust and debris from floors, while leaving draperies, shelves, and furniture spotlessly clean as well. Robotic vacuum cleaners have been a big hit in the marketplace. As the best vacuum cleaner site CleanInStyle told us the premium brands cost upwards of $400, while a cheap version is under $50. Soon homeowners will be lining up to buy flying robots for their homes, as it’ll mean that they no longer have to personally do any cleaning chores at all. Pretty much any person would jump on board with that.

At a university in Columbia, one industrial-design student has been working on an all-inclusive cleaning solution for our homes. Adrian Perez Zapata has conceptualized an automated cleaning system that he calls “Mab”. Within Mab will be hundreds of mini robots that will be tasked with cleaning a house. Each will be filled with a cleaning solution. Zapata made it to the semifinals in the 2013 Electrolux Design Living Competition. He was one of 20 entrants who made it to the finals.

Flying Vacuum Cleaners

The 2013 year’s theme was “inspired urban living”. The contest is for under-graduate and graduate students. They submit their designs which focus on a solution. The three main categories they can choose are social cooking, natural air, and effortless cleaning. The user must fill up the Mab’s central core with water and a cleaning solution. The cleaning solution is then distributed to over 908 mini-robots. Each of these mini robots has propellers, much like a drone. The mini-robots then leave the central Mab unit for their mission.

Their mission is to scan the surfaces of a home. Dirty surfaces have cleaning solution poured on them, which is then sucked back inside. To power the mini vacuum cleaner bots, they’ll need to be recharged by solar power that is collected through tiny panels on their wings. This will happen while they’re flying around a room cleaning. Once back at the Mab, the debris would be emptied back into a central core, which the user would then clean out and prep for the next cleaning session. Like robotic vacuum cleaners, the Mab can be preprogrammed, or sent out at any time to clean a room. It would sync with smart devices, notifying the user of issues and stages.

Flying Vacuum Cleaners

Zapata said it’s his goal to provide a perfectly clean home through a simple process. Thomas Johansson of Electrox Design was impressed by the Mab. He likened it to the collecting of honey by honey bees. Since Zapata ended up being the winner of the 2013 design contest, it will be exciting to see if he can get this design off paper and into production, with help from the grant and the technology of Electrolux.

Exciting Products Unveiled at CES 2016


During the first week of the new year there were many exciting new products revealed at CES 2016 —The Consumer Electronics Show that’s held once a year in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is the year’s biggest technology show. Exciting new products included cars, TVs, and wearables. The products showcased this year included some these should prove to be top sellers for the next eleven months, including many that should prove to be best-sellers at Christmas time. There are also some far-fetched products that never made it out the door, but that’s what makes this show so much fun.


This year consumers got to see high definition televisions, virtual reality equipment, drones, vehicles, and wearable technology. Autos seem to take center stage at the show, so many call it an auto show. The Chevy Bolt is a new electric car that many are eagerly anticipating. It can be driven to a range of 200 miles before needing to be charged up. The VW Microbus may hit markets soon, being a size between a car and the traditional VW van. And most of us have heard about the Google car which apparently needs no driver. BMW is working on a touch interface called AirTouch. Television is always an exciting offering at the show. Samsung offered a TV as part of a smart home where you can control everything from temperature to the security system all through a remote and your TV screen. Smart home stuff was popular at the show. Apple and Google have several products to help us control the gadgets in our home. One of these issues of smart home products is connecting them all together. Samsung, Intel and other manufacturers are working together to see this happen.


Another aspect of the show was wearable devices. The Apple Watch and the Fitbit were popular. VR headsets were popular for games. Some companies are beginning to put tech into clothing such as shirts and jackets, but there is a ways to go before people line up to buy these articles. These items may be built with sensors to discern heart rate, pulse, and more.  Sound technology remains popular, particularly for new headphones for smart phones. High end headphones continue to make money. There remains a need for crystal clear sound that can integrate with telephone calls. Many manufacturers are utilizing Apple’s Lightning connector used to connect headphones/microphone to a smart phone, tablet, or computer.


There will be more types of compact rideables available, including skateboards, scooters, and hover boards that are powered by a rechargeable battery. Designers have improved on the length of time required for a battery charge, and length of time these rides can last. Qualcomm debuted its new drone at the show, which promised to be fully autonomous. Other drones were also constantly buzzing around the show, proving to be one of the hottest gifts around. It will be interesting to see how many items will be released in time for the holidays this December.
