Hasbro's "Tooth Tunes"

Hasbro "Tooth Tunes"

"When pressed to the teeth, the toothbrush renders a recorded riff from a pop star that lasts two minutes -- precisely the amount of time dentists say children should spend brushing their teeth.

How does it work? "The two-minute recording is stored on a microchip no bigger than a dot atop the letter i. Push a button on the toothbrush, and a minicomputer starts playing the song. Sound waves are transported through the transducer to the front teeth,
traveling from there to the jawbone and then to the inner ear.

Just what we need. I wonder if Sanata or Iron Butterfly is available.

Signing Off. Until next time, I'll see ya on the Blog! drh.
