proof that some people have too much disposable income.....

I had to read an article twice the other day to make sure I read it correctly. It seems that Oral-B has released a new toothbrush called the Triumph SmartGuide. It's available in the United Kingdom for about $280, and uses navigation technology to transmit the exact location of the toothbrush to a base unit so that the user can see which areas in his mouth the brush might have missed. It even has a wireless LCD mouth display that can be mounted on a mirror or held in the free hand.

Is this meant to replace the parent standing over the child and telling him or her to brush again because they missed a spot? Or so they parent can read the display and say, "See, I told you so!"?

Technology can be great, but sometimes it just seems like a bit too much.....
