Taking the Gillette Sensor 3 Challenge by Shaving my Head

Gillette asked me to try out the Sensor 3 disposable razor They wanted to show me how this 3 blade disposable is better than a 2 blade razor. With the proglide strip, I can do a dry shave without nicks, cuts or razor rash. The Sensor 3 is great for travel. I like to keep a small grooming kit in my car just in case, and it will contain the Sensor 3. The best part about the razor is the cleaning ability. With a few swipes in the glass of water, I was able to clean the blades so I can continue on shaving. During this shave I covered my face and head. Since the video was created, I used this razor for another 2 weeks. That is shaving both face (6 times a week) and head (3 times a week). Get the Gillette Sensor 3 and try...

360fly Review Right From the 360 Video Camera

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI’ve been having an awesome time with figuring out 360 video. That is why I decided to create this review in 360 video view. Now if you are watching this from my podcast channels, you might be seeing this crunched down. To view it in the intended version, you either will have to download 360 viewing software or go to Youtube.com/geekazine and watch it there. The hardware I am using is 360fly.

The top or bottom recording is all dependant on how you set up the camera. I have the 360 fly set up to point down. This makes it a...
