I'm too lazy to shave every day....Solutions?

We can put a man on the moon. We can turn a woman into a man and a man into a woman. We can create computers that are smarter than us. We know what the middle of the earth looks like...And so on and so on and so on...... We are a pretty much technology advanced race of humans. How close are we to inventing a 'Nair' like product for the head? I'm bald and a bit lazy and tired of the routine of shaving my head 3x a week to maintain an appearance that isn't so 'gruff'. My wife likes me smooth! Every hair removal product I read of is not recommended for the head, because our skin on top is too thin and the hair removal chemicals could do more damage then good. So anyway, is there a solution on the horizon? Any miracle head hair removal gel, cream, mist coming out soon? Life must be pretty good if this is what concerns me at the moment...... Humor me?
