A selection of 3D printed models.
The piece is inspired by a Kickstarter campaign by Skarp, which attempted to make razorless,
laser-based blades. The campaign launched in 2015 and recruited $4,000,000 from
investors who believed in the idea. Soon after the internet called out fraud, Kickstarter
renounced support of the project, as Skarp could not produce a satisfactory prototype.
To this day, the company has not been able to develop the product for manufacturing, and all of their promises remained confined to images, simulations, and videos.
