Rolling Razor Review
Andi: Hello and welcome to Neo-Fight.tv the technology show for the not so geeky. I'm Andi Barnes.
Ben: And I'm Ben Freedman and today on the show another full of water, I remember the last time we had water on the show. It didn’t end up very well so for me, I have to dunk my head.
Andi: But it was definitely fun to watch.
Ben: Well it is always fun to watch getting my head soaked.
Andi: What are you going to do in it today?
Ben: Well that is a good question Andi, so today we are looking at this really nifty different products. This is called the Rolling Razor and they advertise this as a revolutionary breakthrough in the way you remove hair from parts of your body.
Ben: And this is what it looks right here, it’s basically a—it is much shorter than razor. It has a hole that you stick your finger through like so. And then it has two heads with three blades on each and the idea is you can shave on the up-stroke and the down-stroke.
Andi: The down-stroke.
And you know the heads face the opposite direction so going up once you are like with your hair and that one’s here, away from the hair.
Andi: It is a great concept.
Ben: It’s a great concept and so I thought right now you probably can’t tell but first of all I don’t grow much beard. You know couple of weeks three or four weeks I get—you can really see it but this is like about two days can you feel that?
Andi: In here? Of yeah – you hear that on the mic?
Ben: I don’t know with the mic – if I did call you.
Andi: That is a little scruffy, yeah.
Ben: And you can a little better there, I am a man. Okay.
Andi: Here, feel this.
Ben: So I am going to, today I haven’t shaved—I am going to actually here on the show right now, I think what I will do is I will shave like this half to my face. So it won’t get the mic.
And by the way I am going to be using today the rolling razor eucalyptus shaving cream. Now while I get ready for this, you’ve used this a couple of times right.
Ben: So why don’t you tell the good folks your experience, show them the pink one while I get ready for this.
Andi: Okay, obviously in my night came a pomegranate also from my shaving. You know what I thought it was a really cool concept where you put your finger through it, I love it on my underarms. May not know if I can demonstrate, but when you go down and up it is just very easy.
What I didn’t like is on my legs, I felt like you needed a lot more on your leg—you needed to I think you are so used to holding it and in a certain way. That I didn’t feel like I could really get the grip enough from my legs so.
Ben: Feel like Two-Face from Batman, he’s normal then, he’s Michael Jackson guy.
Andi: There you go, let’s see what on here.
Ben: Is that too soon? I don’t know would be less.
Andi: On here or less hairy Ben looks like. So anyway I really like it under to my arms obviously you couldn’t test it under your arms.
Ben: I did not take to that to my arms.
Andi: I don’t know if you shaved your arms.
Ben: Now with closeness comfort what do you think?
Andi: Under my arms, I thought it was great, it was just super easy to go up and down and up and down. And the shave was great but when I got to my legs I just I didn’t like it, it was sort of harder to holding you are used to holding at a certain way.
Ben: Is it a getting used to I think? You think?
Andi: You know I thought maybe I could get used to and to see we are comparing totally different things. You can’t even understand what I am talking about.
Ben: I never shaved my legs.
Andi: As far as shaving legs or shaving my underarms.
Ben: I shaved my chest before but that was a bet I lost in high school. It’s a long time ago.
Andi: Yeah maybe we could draw pictures of that.
Ben: Maybe that where they are existing.
Andi: Maybe not. You know I might feel might to get used to.
Ben: Why are you talking by the way if I have trouble to start here because it is time consuming.
Ben: So I am going to dip this in here until you stick your finger through a little bit in the middle. And then I am just going to – it’s okay?
Andi: Yeah, I just putting the razor up to your throat like that is what freaks me. So what do yo think?
Ben: You know I find it—you know I have used before the I think I use the Gillette. Yeah I use usually electric by I use the Gillette like the—I’m 23 Blade one I think it is, now at 28 blade I don’t know what they are up to. But it is a lot of blades on the thing.
Ben: And you know I find it’s pretty good shave but in fact and I have that vibrates—you push the button and it goes zzzzz it supposed to somehow get you know shave better and. I like this, I like it is nice and small so I enjoy it for travelling, I took it last with the Austin and that worked well.
Andi: Do you mind it is easy enough to hold I mean you get a good—is it hard to get a grip with just your little finger in there?
Ben: So you think my fingers are little.
Andi: No, I mean- for me it was easy doing the under arms but when I did my legs I just felt it wasn’t a good enough grip with just one little finger.
Ben: Well, I haven’t tried to do my under arms so I am not sure. But you know I want to do here is kind of to get—what I like is right here. So I find it I kind of use ti like a regular razor—I am just going down, I am not doing like a down, up, down, up, down, up.
Ben: I am just going now but then when I want to get underneath, they start to go up.
Ben: Which is kind of cool, so I can go down and up without having to—you know turn the razor on. Does that feed the object of it? Yeah, that could come off there.
Andi: You know I love from my underarms for my legs and be able to get to use to it. How much is it by the way?
Ben: That is a good question, the Rolling Razor is $15.00 for like the base kit, which comes with like four razor sets.
Andi: And I think the Divine’s wants the same.
Ben: And show the stand as well.
Andi: So you can go like this and so it can sit nice and pretty, I thought you are right? Like that.
Ben: It just sits though like that.
Andi: So I mean overall I like it.
Ben: So from a razor point of view here, it’s really basically the same as a regular razor band it is weird.
Andi: But would you use this instead of your electric I mean for women—we don’t use electric razor and so.
Ben: Well someone use to do this the lady Remington.
Andi: Have to try that.
Ben: Did you never tried an electric.
Ben: But you thought you laser everything?
Andi: But that is a little personal.
Ben: I'm sorry.
Andi: Then but.
Ben: Maybe I should not bring that up and okay so here I am. I've now gone over this find and you feel that and tell me what you think.
Andi: Wow it is really soft.
Ben: It is soft and sweet and I actually.
Andi: And you smell good too.
Ben: That is a change. Now I tell you what I really like actually was this, I really like this but I like eucalyptus. And I find and this gave me a really good shave, in fact where I not to like the rolling rates, which I find, is good. I find it not as innovative, you know it’s cool, it’s a little different, it’s neat. Innovative I don’t know but I really like this in fact I would use this. I would buy this and use it with the regulars.
Andi: There you go and bottom it smells really good too.
Ben: Where and when did you smell that?
Ben: What, you can smell it on me?
Ben: Because I am wearing it happily.
Andi: It was totally smells like a man.
Ben: Smells like a man.
Andi: Smells like a man, all right.
Ben: Eucalyptus is that a male in this now?
Ben: I guess is—you I like that you put, that was they put in steamer in some male steamers when you go to a club and stuff and all that. So there you go that is the Rolling Razor, I would say give it a try, especially if you have difficulties with a regular razor or your don’t have much time in the morning.
Andi: Right for me under arms definitely great, maybe I’ll get used to the legs much.
Ben: You definitely try the eucalyptus so I think that is awesome, I ready to go the side of my face.
Andi: That is all a professional opinion.
Ben: Yeah, and then we will be back so please stay tuned.
And we are back I have now cleaned shaven both sides, see nice and smooth.
Andi: Very nice, much better.
Ben: Yes much better and did not cut myself so I am much happy with the water episode this time.
Andi: You know that is a great reviewing—you don’t cut yourself.
Ben: Definitely, so now second spotlight here. Now there is one thing better than using your laptop. It’s using your laptop in bed and who among us wouldn’t like to do more with that. So we have a couple of products here the design just for that purpose to help you use your laptop while reclined. And the first one is this guy called the Laptop Laid Back, now Andi, I know you have a little difficulty putting these together.
Andi: I did, I have lot of difficulty.
Ben: So you can have and.
Andi: And I think you like that, you give me things to try and I am like it was so tough and you are like – I though it was so easy.
Ben: So this is travel mode right now and I must admit, you know this does involve some screwing and unscrewing of little bolts to put the whole thing together.
Andi: You make it sound so easy.
Ben: Well let us give it a try shall we—so I'm going basically they are these – five bits to this does the laptop and their four legs. So the first thing you do is these are gartered on and you have to Velcro them on in a certain order. See how long it takes me.
Andi: Show off.
Ben: You have to Velcro them on in a certain order to stop the bolts from getting lost. And now I have little directions, I don’t know if I can zoom in right here, little directions—you’ll picture to show you how to put that together. Then you turn it over and it goes on the back like this right?
Ben: We are on the back and the first thing we do, is we take the two A’s and you see there is like a bolt hole right here. Sliding one and you put this.
Andi: That’s what happened.
Ben: Hold on, slow down. You take this and you screw it into this bolt holder right here that is one. You take the other A and long bolt in and it goes into the other bolt holder right here.
Andi: I know exactly what I did wrong now.
Ben: What did you do wrong?
Andi: How was I supposed to know that slides?
Ben: I don’t know look at the bag and.
Andi: Right it doesn’t show that it slides, it just shows you the screw up here, but there was anything to screw in up there, so that there you go.
Ben: There you go.
Andi: What is it some people think with their right brain, some people think with their left-brain something like that.
Ben: Is that what it is?
Andi: I think so because I had no idea.
Ben: I am resisting about a 100 real jokes right now just because you are new. So you got on there like that’s two bits on and you take this piece goes through here and squeeze on like this. I think Im doing the right way—going the wrong way goes through the outside. Again, there is a picture in here to show this is like a got cogs on it so I'm just going—I don’t know setting the right angle.
Andi: Sitting might take this, travel with it toward in your suitcase kind of thing.
Ben: Or like for instance if you like to work like on your hotel room on your bed. You could do this, so here I am—boom there it is set-up. I got to change the angle of this because it is not lean back far enough so.
Andi: This looks nothing.
Ben: Nothing like the picture.
Andi: Nothing like what I did.
Ben: So you see the picture on the back shows you is that the right way up. Yes, picture on the back has the step-by-step instructions I think what threw you.
Andi: No, what threw is that I didn’t know that it’s slid.
Ben: How is that look? Was that a minute to take me to set it up?
Andi: In my look, it didn’t look anything like that to say enough.
Ben: And what you do is you take your laptop and this end fits on right here like so. And boom let me adjust it and you fit under here and you sit in bed typing away on your laptop.
Andi: Well I threw this against the wall and used a pillow and it worked exactly the same.
Ben: Well it will overheat your laptop so you see that is the problem.
Andi: Maybe I fall I sleep too fast.
Ben: So that is one product that is the Laptop Laid Back, I really like this guy and it’s good for home use when you are not opening and closing at all the time. Because it does take a minute or two to set-up, you know you can't set it up like at airport or something you need it quickly. But you can set it up in your hotel.
Andi: Leave it there.
The other one is a little different and this is called the X4 by a company called Lap Dawg and you get this one to work.
Andi: Yes, I got it to work.
Ben: Okay this one is a little different on each side it has three articulating legs. And what you do is there is a button on the bottom and if you push this button once, it’s unlocked and will swivel. And if you push it again ti lock basically whatever you left it.
Andi: Right, it took me a couple of times to figure that out but I got it.
Ben: To figure out.
Andi: Let me just – you have to make sure that your side is even.
Ben: You do, so you know for instance if I push both sides up like this and push the locking button. It will just stay right like that, and it’s like a nice book tray I mean and you can just put a book.
Andi: I actually use it as a TV stands too.
Ben: As a TV stand, exactly.
Ben: I can now push this one on both sides and like for instance if I put it up like here. Then that’s like a TV tray.
Ben: So this one goes to and if I wanted to –if I pushed these ones in and push this up a little like so.
Andi: To angle it.
Ben: Now it’s kind of like the one that we had before. You could put your laptop on there.
Andi: Read a book in bed.
Ben: Read a book in bed and actually – probably I'm not set this up the proper way but you usually could.
Andi: I really like this one, I wouldn’t travel with it – I mean this one is heavy.
Ben: This one a bit I mean it is a six pounds and it’s a bit heavy to travel.
Andi: Keep it next to your bed.
Ben: It does have – like the I'm sure you know. It has like the degrees on here so what you can do is just to sort of set one and set the other one. I am going to try to put that down like this.
Andi: You see now this one I can figure out without directions, didn’t take me long – I like it.
Ben: You like this one.
Andi: I like this one.
Ben: So here I go now I can put it up this way for instance you know. And let me change this one again here and I just trying to figure out – I mean this one has like 8,000 configurations that you could put it in. So for instance I could do this and this like so and now you got like a higher stand where you can put your laptop.
Andi: Right. I like it.
Ben: Now if you want to lower this down a bit you can lower like this.
Andi: I think you had fun with this.
Ben: What? It comes like Lego – I mean it is like a new toy everyday I mean you know. What do you think of its sturdiness wise, what I didn’t like about this and I think it just something that happens when you got so many different legs is compared to the other one, which is like rock – so this one is know when you are flexible.
Let’s agree right, it has one basic position that is it. But push down on that and feel how solid that is.
Andi: And now it is.
Ben: Now with this one and I am sure it’s different depending on how you push it. But because it got the three legs, I find this one is just a little bit push down on that.
Ben: It’s a little flimsy, I have got this quite set right but even when it is set right.
Andi: This one has more choices you wouldn’t travel with it. The other it just makes me so mad that I didn’t know the screws went up and down. How many other people would do that?
Ben: I don’t know I mean they have a web site would like tutorials and stuff. But who goes to the web sites these days.
Andi: Good for nothing.
Ben: It’s just the fad anyway—it’s done and you are getting out. Anyway, so that is two options and if you want the flexibility and also a much. This is aluminum, it’s solid and a much more solid frame and much more flexible. You go with this kind of Laptop X4 Lap Dawg.
Andi: Right Lap Dawg.
Ben: Or this one is smaller, more portable and sturdier
Andi: And now that we have shown you how it works.
Ben: Easy to set up for most people and that is the Laptop Laid Back. By the way, prices these are both like one is 90 and the other is a 100 bucks.
Andi: Forget it.
Ben: Okay that is the end of the that.
Andi: No way, use pillows when your lap top starts to heat up then turn it off.
Ben: Well it is also like a potential sterility issue with men using a pillow that gets hot on your lap.
Andi: Didn’t thought that.
Andi: Never had to know about that.
Ben: That is maybe like an issue you don’t have to worry about but you know you got little boys down there don’t operate in opt able circumstances, when the temperature is above body temperature.
Andi: I don’t know, 100 bucks for that thing seems a little pricey to me.
Andi: I wouldn’t do it.
Ben: All right so that is the Laptop Laid Back and the Lap Dawg X4. What do you think would you use either on of those? Or do you subscribe to the just use a pillow theory.
Andi: Until it gets hot.
Ben: Until it gets hot, let us know what you think www.neo-fight.tv is the web site, leave us a comment and let us know and if you have an extra 30 seconds.
