Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Tooth Tunes is a weird music player/toothbrush hybrid that’s supposed to make you brush to the music. And pop music too, ala Black Eye Peas, KISS, and Destiny’s Child.

Unfortunately, the music is limited to an implanted chip that plays only one pre-programmed song. Which makes me think that Apple shouldn’t have gone down the iPhone path of consumer electronic development; it should have taken this clear path to ubiquity! Imagine: The iTooth, in 30 gig and 60 gig models, with USB connection to your MP3 collection, etc.

Actually, the interesting thing about Tooth Tunes is the way it channels soundwaves through your teeth and into your eardrums. This is basically the same technology that was used in a Japanese “bone phone”, which I made note of more than three years ago. Nice to see the “sonic speaker” concept being applied to such hygenic use.
