- Srijit Panja, Ahammed Shamil K
One needs to physically reach the salon to get a desired haircut ; for those who do not have time or the money to spend each time in salons, at regular intervals of a month or two, this is a problem.
And in the salon also, the process is completely manual. That is a shortcoming for salon workers also.
The idea is to have a device that will itself crawl on the person's head when a haircut design is fed into it, finding a moving algorithm on its own, regulating the blade movements at each point on the head surface to give the required finished haircut as the output.
Anyone who wants to have any type of haircut at home, without going to the salon.
Interview : Mr. Vinay Pandey, Employee, Vernier Tech
Me: Mr. Pandey, given that you work in a corporate setup, holding an important role, do you anyhow find it difficult at times to take a moment and finish up your personal chores like shaving and having a haircut?
Mr. Pandey: Frankly speaking, it kind of becomes like a duty at times, and I need to remind myself that the haircut and shaving is required, even in between the schedules I generally work on. Had there been a solution such that the process did not take much time and could also been portable and place independent, it would have really eased the life.
Me: Suppose, we come up with a mechanism with which you could have a desired haircut at your home itself. How would you like it? How much would you be eager to pay for it?
Mr. Pandey: In case it saves my time, and in parallel, gives the haircut I require, I would be interested in buying it, as it will be really useful product.
