Rakuten Ultraviolet Toothbrush Cleaner

Rakuten's latest gadget sterilizes your toothbrush in four minutes, preventing the buildup of bacteria and other nasty elements. When the toothbrush is inserted and the lid is shut, an ultraviolet lamp heats up and within four minutes, your brush is as clean as the day you bought it. Pretty handy, especially when you consider how often the average person really cleans their toothbrush.

This little UV wonder is only $45, but only available in Japan. At least it beats a trip to the dentist and having your teeth cleaned with a power saw.
