If this is a robotic technology, I would not want to be a guinea pig to be honest, no matter how cheap. Actually there is Dr. Berman in San Francisco area who offers free robotic hair transplants in association with another company (which makes the robots I guess) on an experimental basis. I dont see why if you are taking the risks with new technology you should even pay for it. You are doing them a favor to study the effect.
But it could be something else, so lets wait and see the announcement first. If strip is at 6 dollars at Dr. Cole, that must be the floor no matter what the improvement is. How can it be cheaper than something that takes only an afternoon to finish and is pretty much commodity now?
