Nanotechnology seems to pop up in the news pretty regularly, but since many of the applications are medical or scientific in nature, it's easy to assume that it won't affect our day to day lives. In reality, nanotechnology has the potential to influence everything from our apparel to our digital storage to the razors we use to shave.

By using nanotechnology-enhanced razors, scientists have created the Panasonic Arc electric razor and the FX Diamond "traditional" razor. These high-tech blades feature almost impossibly small particles that coat the blade to add to both the lifespan of the razor and the closeness of the shave.
