As another Movember draws to a close, the campaign to promote men’s health worldwide has left many men with a luxuriously carpeted lip. Or at least just a light peppering of stubble. It’s unlikely that many of these ‘taches will last until Christmas before falling beneath the blade. But this year, developers Bas van de Poel, Daan van Dam and animator Wong Ping have come up with another way to further the fuzz.
The ‘screenshaver’ is like a screensaver, only hairier. When your computer goes idle, an abstract figure appears and proceeds to shave its entire body, leaving only a magnificent moustache behind.
Proceeds from the screenshaver go to the Movember Foundation which supports a range of initiatives around the world, working towards better health for men and raising awareness around testicular cancer, prostate cancer and heart disease. Which is great. Close shaves like these are best avoided.
