There’s No Clean Like a USB Clean

You have your iPod, you browse the web on your phone, you have a webcam implanted into your eyeball… just when you thought you had every gadget available comes the USB toothbrush, found by the folks at happily geeky Gizmodo. This goofy little device can be bought on the streets of Japan. What sort of information you’re going to transmit from your toothbrush (“On 2/25/2003, you brushed your teeth for 1.5 minutes”), I’m not sure… I imagine it just gets its power from the USB port rather than a traditional outlet. In that sense, maybe it makes sense for business travellers who don’t want to carry adapters with them when they’re visiting away from home.

I can’t believe I just found a justification for a USB toothbrush. Ignore the last sentence of the previous paragraph, please.

If you put a tiny camera on the end you could watch yourself on screen as you brush... to make sure you don't miss any spots. Or maybe we could adapt that gunk we swished as kids that turned your teeth pink where the plaque was, so you could see exactly whre you needed to brush more thoroughly. Really, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and might be the end of tooth decay. (grin)

"You have your iPod"

uhm. stop right there. no, i don't have my iLamp... i am not one of the kool-aid drinking minions of steve jobs. and not to say that bill gates is any kind of technical genius, but heck, being associated with apple products is like being associated with michael jackson. either way, you're gonna get screwed.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
