I came across this while I was doing research for the IDEO project, thought it was quite an interesting design.
Innovations in oral hygiene usually come in the form of the toothbrush or the toothpaste; rarely is the issue of contamination addressed. Yeah, our bathrooms are filled with goop that can affect our health and sometimes they do take a ride to our system via the toothbrush. Most of us don’t fear this, but for those who care, Tocsy is your answer. What works in favor of this toothbrush sterilizer is that it hooks up to your computer via USB, for power. So no batteries and finding place for it in cramped bathrooms required.
