A shampoo maker’s passion for technology goes viral
In a recent blog post, a small business owner from the U.K. has taken the concept of the shampoo to the next level by using the internet to launch his own company.
The entrepreneur, who wished to remain anonymous, has created a shampoo maker named Shampooify.
“I have always been obsessed with making a shampoo that works like a product on the market,” he wrote.
He created the company by using a Raspberry Pi computer and an Arduino microcontroller.
The Shampooifier, which he called the “Shampooify”, is powered by a Raspberry Pis’ Raspberry Pi microcontroller and a WiFi-enabled Arduino microchip, he explained.
This is a bit of a departure from other shampoo makers out there, because the Shampooizer is not only able to make a shampoo by itself but also to be controlled via the Arduino, he added.
I have been thinking about how to make shampoo that is really easy to use, he said.
Shampooifying has received rave reviews from the press.
“A shampoo that you can use in your bathroom, with a couple of simple taps of the Raspberry Pi,” wrote one user.
Another said: “The Shampify is my favorite product in the shampoo aisle and I can’t believe how easy it is to use.”
While this may seem like a little “easy” business to make, it is not for everyone.
A recent study found that the majority of shampoo consumers have at least one condition that affects their hair and that they are likely to use shampoo containing synthetic chemicals.
If you do not have a problem with a shampoo containing chemicals in it, there is a chance you could be spending more money on shampoo that does not really work, according to The Telegraph.
Some people will use the Shampifier as a novelty, while others may choose to try it out because it has the potential to create a product they want to try, Shampooified said.
He added that he was looking forward to launching the Shampsify on May 3, but had to postpone the launch because of the upcoming Christmas season.
As an experiment, he also set up a website, shampify.com, so people could subscribe to receive emails and other information about the Shaminewise product.
