Tooth Tunes is a discontinued line of children's toothbrushes released by the Tiger Electronics division of Hasbro in 2007. Each brush played a two-minute song clip from a particular artist to encourage the user to brush their teeth for the dentist-recommended two minutes. A single toothbrush came with one song, and had a manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$9.99. Two more types, Turbo Tooth Tunes and Tooth Tunes Junior, were introduced in 2008. In 2012, nine new Tooth Tunes toothbrushes were introduced.
Once activated, a small CPU in the handle played the featured song on the chip by transferring vibrations through the bristles, which acted as transducers, into the front teeth, through the jawbone, and into the inner ear. During use, the user heard a mix between a natural vocal hum and the song being played. The intended result was for the music only to be audible to its user, however the music emanating from the toothbrush could be heard by those nearby, with increasing volume as pressure was applied to the brush head.
Remember when we had to wash our hands for 20 seconds by singing songs to ourselves? The same methodology also applies to brushing your teeth, but why should you use your own brain and lips like a sucker? There have been many smart toothbrushes over the years, but today I'm picking on the Kolibree. Everything was just fine until the arrival of "the world's first connected electric toothbrush." Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you...
This tutorial video will show you how to modify an electric toothbrush so that it will play the radio through your skull while you brush your teeth. This handy device is similar to the store bought models but you could hook it up to any audio source (For example: ipod, mp3 player, radio).

The lamps on the distant hills where the rich people live, they're campfires from the army of Alexander the Great, or maybe will-o-wisps to lead me astray. The wind rattles my window, held together with masking tape. Let me out. Let me out. "Were you reading?" my mother asks. "No""I thought I heard you laughing," she says."You didn't."I will read these stories with the hope (the real belief I will not admit) that they are true, that they will take me away from here. I still believe. Shhh, be quiet, you.Every day after school I am a girl-spy. I know the secret path on the stairs. I know the names of the floorboards who will groan beneath me and betray me. I hold the fear of discovery tight--I must sneak into the control room, before the villain finds me. But then, caught! I am a slave in Pharaoh's Egypt, scrubbing the dining room floors with a toothbrush. He has so many wine-spots from his Greek-style symposiums, the careless Pharaoh! His stern wife watches over the slaves, not knowing of the plot. Crossing the Sea of Reeds will be difficult, but oh! the wide skies of the desert, the barefoot freedom of the hot summer sun. "It's got maggots!""Clean it up," my mother says. "You're not done scrubbing the floors yet."The maggots birth themselves from the grey feathers of the songbird, writhe across the dirty white linoleum, scatter the daddy longlegs, hide in the art supplies among the broken paintings, among crayon pictures of screaming women. One day I'll wake up and my arm will be broken and I'll say, "Maybe I need to go to the doctor," and she will say, "Here, let me help." She will pull me across her lap like she loves me, and break all of my bones with quick twists of her hands. She will bend my arms and my legs so that the jagged shards of bone rip through muscle and skin. Then she will pull out my bones, one by one, and stack them neatly beside us. "There you are," she'll say, kissing my forehead. "There you are. Free at last." $(".lyricsText").last().bcTruncate(TruncateProfile.get("tralbum_long"), "more", "less"); credits from The Listening Engine, released January 8, 2023 license all rights reserved tags Tags electronic soundtrack cinematic noise post-rock videogame Bellingham Shopping cart total USD Check out about Michael Bell Bellingham, Washington 041b061a72
