Hasbro ToothTunes

Toymaker Hasbro recently unveiled its new ToothTunes toothbrush. Created to persuade otherwise reluctant children to clean their teeth, the brush automatically triggers music that plays for the two minutes of brushing recommended by dentists. The system works without speakers or headphones by using bone conduction as the child presses the bristles against their teeth, Hasbro says. A single song is pre-supplied for each ToothTunes brush and includes trackss by the Black Eyed Peas, Jamiroquai, and other artists. Power is supplied by three bundled AAA batteries. Hasbro plans to release 14 brushes with their own respective songs in February at a price of $10 each. [via Gearlog]
