Car navi yes, but teeth navi?!

Just when you'd given up on brushing your teeth for lack of technique...

Japan saves the day again and pops out a tooth brush with its own navigational system!! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the commercial for it on TV! They really have gone bat-shit this time. You've seen those books called "100 craziest Japanese inventions" with shoe umbrellas and the like, so obviously this doesn't really top that but it just seems so ridiculous.

I will now refrain from making a snide comment on the state of people's teeth in this country and how something like this is well overdue...

This puppy from Braun costs around 19,000 yen, has 4 different modes and 3 "navi" systems which time how long you've been brushing for, point out where you should brush next and let you know how much pressure to apply in each area. Wow amazing! Whatever happened to good old-fashioned brushing and flossing? Floss is hard to find here, the beau had never seen it before I showed him! Looks like Japan has skipped flossing and jumped straight into the space age with this one.
