Connected Toothbrush Keeps Track Of Your Habits

kolibree_smart_toothbrush-4

Kolibree doesn’t only connect to your smartphone in order to keep track of how often or how long you brush (and nag you in case it isn’t enough), but its integrated accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer also allow it to know which part of your mouth you’re brushing. This means that it’ll point out the neglected teeth, so you can then spend more time on those molars you always forget. You can also then share your habits with friends and dentist, although to be honest we can’t imagine anyone would really be interested in sharing that information. Still, it’s there for the sharing along with all the other features that make this toothbrush about as exciting as connected toothbrushes get. There will be a Kickstarter soon, and you should expect to have to pay around between $100 and $200 for yours.

Hyperglide Razors With Self-Lubricating Cartridges: Smoothest Shave Ever?

HyperGlide Razors1

Razor burns and nicks are not only painful, but they also mess up your face for a short period of time, too. Of course, shaving cream helps some, but if you can’t be bothered to put it on before every shave, then these Hyperglide Razors are a worthy alternative. Made by King of Shaves, these multi-tasting razors come with self-lubricating cartridges that release its own shaving gel of sorts when it comes into contact with water.

That means you’ll be able to get a closer, smoother shave with just the razor and nothing more. The Hyperglide Razors are available online for £9.99 (about $17).

OrbSys Saves Water By Letting You Shower in the Same Water, Again and Again

OrbSys shower

Water is a finite resource. At the rate things are going, it’s going to run out sooner rather than later. Then what would become of the human race? Working with this line of thinking are the folks behind the OrbSys shower system, which encourages people to conserve and recycle water as they bathe. Of course, the water is purified before it’s meant to be used again because it would just be gross if it weren’t.

OrbSys offers ten-minute showers that only use five liters of water. Normally people use about 150 liters for a typical shower, so that’s reducing water usage by about 96%. This is made possible by the shower’s closed-loop system that purifies the spent water to drinking water level before it comes out of the shower head for it’s succeeding runs.

Protect Your Privates: Radiation-Proof Underwear Released in Japan

Radiation Proof Underwear

Radiation exposure kills. It also damages parts of your body that’s exposed to it. Most people find no reason to come into contact with radiated waters, but the Fukushima clean-up crews do, and that’s exactly who these radiation shield wear undies are for. Made by Yamamoto Corporation, the underwear is lined with lead to block harmful gamma rays in the abdomen and lower spine area. A beta-ray shielding suit should then be worn over the gamma ray crotch guard to ward of the beta rays. The shielding suit is effective as its seams are completely fused, keeping the radiation out and keeping its wearer safe.

The Yamamoto drysuit will cover the wearer’s entire body, with the only opening being for the face mask. The suits will be available this month for $1,072, while the gamma ray guard will cost an additional $825. Extremely expensive, but hey, they could save your life–that is, if you plan to go swimming in exposed waters.

Yin-Yang Bathtub for Couples Makes Baths Harmonious

Yin Yang Bathtub

Now you can bathe with your significant other without having to be in the same tub. Not that there’s anything wrong if you’re both in one bathtub, but sometimes things can get a little too crowded and bath bonding time might turn into tub fighting time. That won’t happen though, if you’ve got one of these Yin-Yang bathtubs in your bathroom.

It’s a two-in-one tub where each person gets their own separate space to relax in, while still allowing both to bathe together. It also comes with a bunch of nifty features that will make bath time more special, such as a colorful lights and soundwave massage. The only downside? It costs $5,500.

Let Her Rip: Shreddies Underwear Will Filter Out Your Farts

Shreddies

Do you fart a lot? If you do, you’ve probably already mastered the after-fart poker face where you just sit still with a stony expression and continue doing whatever it is you’re doing, so as to deflect suspicion that you are, indeed, the farter. If you don’t, well, you probably don’t like beans that much.

Frequent farters will be happy to hear that fart-filtering underwear now exists. It’s called Shreddies, and it has an embedded layer of Zorflex, a thin and flexible carbon cloth that’s behind the underwear’s flatulence filtering action.

Shreddies flatulence filtering underwear features a ‘Zorflex’ activated carbon back panel that absorbs all flatulence odours. Due to its highly porous nature, the odour vapours become trapped and neutralised by the cloth, which is then reactivated by simply washing the garment.

Shreddies is available for men (as boxer briefs and support boxers) starting at $40 and for women (as briefs and high-waisted briefs) starting at $30.

3D-Printed Blizzident Toothbrush Cleans Your Pearly Whites in Six Seconds

Blizzident

If you don’t want to end up with dentures at a not-so-ripe young age, then you’d better brush your teeth and floss like your dentist recommended. I’m not one to judge, though, because I know that feeling all too well: when you find yourself lying in bed after a long day, and you just can’t seem to bring yourself to get up and head to the bathroom so you can brush your teeth before turning in.

Then alone came Blizzident. Now this 3D printed toothbrush won’t let you brush your teeth in bed, but it will certainly change how you brush your teeth. It’s a mouthpiece-like brush that’s customized to fit your mouth (and yours alone), so all you have to do is pop it in, make a couple of chewing and biting motions for six seconds, and you’re done.
