Just when you think the industrial designers of the world have lost their inspiration for true innovation, Thanko comes along and opens a new window to improving our lives through technology. This time around it's a USB-rechargeable hairbrush featuring a built-in water reservoir and misting pump, so the humidity's always perfect.

When its tiny tank's topped off with H20 you're promised about half an hour of continual misting, but the rechargeable battery's claimed to be good for another two hours on top of that if you're still battling a tangled mess. But even the bleeding edge of salon styling doesn't come cheap, and you can expect to drop about $77 for this marvel of modern vanity.
