Hitachi's +10 Razor of Goodness
What do you get when you cross two Mach3s and a Schick Quattro? Why it's the 10-bladed Hitachi electric razor, of course, model RM-SX100.
Maybe one of our readers who understands Japanese can translate the specs better, but for now we're stuck with this interpretation:
The razor helps close, smooth, and comfortable shaves by rotating continually at a high speed. It also plays at invariable speed, ensuring the overall effectiveness. The rotary washer built-inside helps to keep the razor clean.
I wonder if the translator thought that "invariable" was one of those words like "inflammable." or "invaluable.". I can only assume they meant the razor has several "variable" speeds, but hey, did I invent this razor? No.
Check out pictures of this totally cool design here. We'll let you know if and when it's available outside Japan. In the meantime you can order one from Amazon.co.jp for only ￥8,526. I think that's either like $8,000 or 3 meters/second. Not sure if I did that conversion right.

Just wanted to give you the translation of the KOREAN(not Japanese) web site that you pointed to(AVING).
At the current URL which is http://www.aving.net/newproduct/default.asp?mode=read&c_code=01_02_04_01&c_num=7156&BT_ExRef=0
The title reads:
"Hitachi's 10-blade rotary-style water-proof electric razor"
Below the first picture it says:
"Hitachi is planning to release a 'Waterproof Electric Razor (Model RM-SX100)' which is equipped with ten blades in a rotary style razor."
Below the second pic:
"This product is not one that just gives you a deep, clean shave with it's high speed continuous rotation, but one that will give you visible results going in only direction and without changing speeds."
And the third pic:
"It has also been equipped with a rotary washer, which has had it's rinsing effectiveness improved."
So, thought you would just like to know. Also the tech spec box said it comes with a 220V DC adapter and it is water-proof(which I think it had already stressed enough).
I'm a recently seperated Korean linguist from the Air Force, so if you need more help from Korean language sites (probably end in .co.kr), email me.
