This week, there are a few different people on this forum, all dreaming about battery powered vacuum appliances.

There is your dream for a comb shaped appliance that can vacuum dandruff and lice off the user's head.

There is a forum topic from last week, from someone, erm... user Chops_McCartney, who wants to build some kind of cosplay prop, specifically: Luigi's Mansion "Poltergust", here:


And finally, there was my dream to make a portable vacuum cleaner, with a transparent collection space, for vacuuming up insects from garden plants.

By the way, I think your comb shaped vacuum is a good idea, but I suspect it will be challenging to make as small as a hand held comb.

Also I think, if the intake holes are too small, circa 1 mm diameter, they will be likely to clog, with dandruf and sebum and such, but maybe you did not want to make the holes too big, like 1 cm or larger diameter, for fear of pulling up hair and tangling it in the blower.

I don't suppose you recall the scene from the motion picture, "Wayne's World (1992)", with the fictional, "Suck Kut" hair-cutting appliance. Naturally, that scene kind of popped into my head, since your idea involves vacuum, and uh, what should I call this application? Uh... "cranial hygene?" Or "cranial grooming." Usually when people think of hair grooming, they're thinking about the hair on their heads. Usually.

Obviously the "Suck Kut" is an example how this kind of thing could go horribly wrong, for the sake of humor, or perhaps painfully, if something similar happened in real life (IRL).

"OK Garth, just sit there. He's gonna put that thing on your mellon..."

It turns out the fictional "Suck Kut" was based on a real life invention, a vacuum powered, hair-cutting appliance, called "Flowbee".

I recall seeing print ads for the Flowbee, from like 30 years ago, but I never saw, or experienced one in real life. The Wikipedia article has a few paragraphs on the Flowbee, and the US Patent number (4679322) here:

I would imagine that it would be hard to clean and you would still need to wash your hair to remove grease build up from your sebaceous glands. Can't see this as being practical, sorry.
