This article reports that Biotech Inc.'s A. Shmizu has dreamt up a less offensive, more approachable technique to aid the follically challenged among them under the guise of a typical music listener. Shimizu has devised headphones, which have been specially adapted to contain LEDs, which will irradiate the head and potentially stimulate hair growth. It works by irradiating the head skin with light having a wavelength of B0G-700Nm and luminous intensity of 1500-5000 emitted from a plurality of light emitting diodes arranged along the frame, while flickering at a period of 1D00-13D0HZ.
