音楽を奏でる歯ブラシ

米国の玩具メーカー、ハズブロが、開発に2年をかけた子供用ミュージック歯ブラシ Tooth Tunes の販売を開始しました。

口の中で音が鳴っても聞こえにくいのでは?と思われるかもしれませんが、
As the bristles are brushed across the teeth, they send sound waves through them so that the user hears the song in his or her head.
「こすりつけられたブラシから歯、頭蓋へと振動が伝わる」
つまり、骨伝導式なのです。

楽しいだけでなく、正しい歯みがきの実践に役立つ機能も。

まず、音楽は2分間続きますが、これは
the amount of time dentists recommend for a good brushing
「歯科医推奨の歯みがき時間」。

さらに、
Sound quality tapers off when the bristles move across teeth rather than up and down.
「上下に磨かず、左右に磨くと音が悪くなる」。
The better you brush, the better the sounds.
「正しい磨き方をするほど良く聞こえる」わけです。

「ロッキーのテーマ」、クイーンの「We Will Rock You」など18種類があり、価格は10ドル(約1,200円)だそうです。


今日のワンポイント
taper off

「だんだん細くなる、だんだん弱まる」
鉛筆の尖った先(細くなっていく)のイメージ。
The labor supply will taper off.
「労働供給は先細りしていく」

I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have
something to add to the conversation. Usually it's triggered by
the sincerness communicated in the article I read. And on this
post _yt__u_V p_j_[X__/EFu_u_O. I was actually excited enough to leave a thought ;-) I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of these responses come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list all of your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

First off I would like to say superb blog!
I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and
clear your thoughts before writing. I've had trouble clearing my
thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure
out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading extremely slow for me.
Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?

I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
