Have you ever wished you can shave your face with your iPhone? No? Well, whatever, because now you can.

Japanese gadget company Thanko just released a tiny electric razor that plugs into your iPhone’s lightning port. It uses a single rotary blade, and looks as silly as it sounds. You’ll have a blast cleaning beard hairs out of the speaker grill, I’m sure.

In all seriousness, it does only cost 980 yen, or around $9. Maybe, just maybe, it’ll work in a pinch. The bad news is that it’s only available in Japan, but I wouldn’t be surprised to to see some company import or clone it soon enough.
