How much science can really go into your grooming gadgets? Sure, you’ve got the miniaturisation of components and motors to make it sleeker and more power efficient, but other than that, how much really? Meet the Braun CoolTec razor: the most advanced foil shaver you’ll ever put on your face.
If Braun’s ET66 calculator looks oddly familiar, like you’ve used it before, you probably have. Originally released in 1987, the ET66 shed the sliding switches of its predecessors, the ET22 released in 1976 and the ET44 released in 1978, and became an icon of product design.
Thanks to Dieter Rams, Braun’s classic travel alarm clock is still considered an icon of design. And while the company’s newest digital alarm clocks might not be as revered one day, they’re still a beautiful object to wake up too.
