For the modern dental enthusiast, we present to you the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean USB toothbrush — because keeping your stank breath fresh at your computer is essential for early morning Skype calls. Long since gone are the days where brushing your teeth was limited to the bathroom. Nowadays, you'll need to keep those chompers fresh no matter where you might find yourself, including (but not limited to): the computer lab at school, your home office, your boss' office, or maybe even the Apple Store. Claiming up to 100 percent plaque removal and 44 percent more bristles, some are going so far as to call this £250 ($405) teeth gleamer the “iPod of toothbrushes.” Check out the full PR and the so fresh, so clean jam after the break.

While being able to afford Roberto Cavalli’s designer wares is one thing, fitting into them is a completely different story. To help with the latter, Cavalli has teamed up with Ciclotte to design a collection of limited edition stationary bikes. With a unique shape that consists of a wheel, seat and handlebars, the bikes come in black carbon fiber frame with the choice of either leopard or zebra print detailing or gold steel frame with jaguar print detailing. In addition to the bikes, Cavalli also has a range of active wear called Cavalli Gym which is due for release sometime later this month. Both the Ciclotte and Cavalli Gym collections will be available exclusively through Roberto Cavalli boutiques.

According to our calendar, this is one of the least timely days of the year for us to harp on New Year’s Resolutions, but that’s no matter to Jawbone. The company, best-known for crafting those high-end headsets, is at TED talking up its first non-audio product: a wristband dubbed “Up” that tracks and analyzes your eating, sleeping, and exercise habits — kind of like a bare-bones Fitbit or Nike+. As you can see in that photo up there, it’s about the size of those ubiquitous rubber Livestrong bands and lacks a display (not to mention, wireless radios) — all concessions made in the name of keeping the cost down, says Travis Bogard, VP of product marketing and strategy. So, this is a good ‘ol wired product, with a bundled adapter connecting the band to your phone via the 3.5mm jack. Once you connect, you can view all your data on a website or through a mobile app. Or, if you thrive on public shaming, you can challenge people to fitness duels to the death (our phrasing, not Jawbone’s). All told, this falls outside the outfit’s comfort zone, but then again, it does know a thing or two about wearable tech. For now, the company’s keeping mum on pricing and availability, though it says Up will be available in the states later this year. As for compatibility, well, Bogard tells us it’s going to work with “all the relevant” mobile platforms. Make of that what you will, folks.

Poor France. The nation known mostly for its food and wine only has a few major sporting events to call its own, yet we — great, fat and lazy America — have pwned its most iconic one for seven years. That legacy could still live on — if you don’t mind shelling out $1299 and sweating all over your living room floor, that is. Powered by Google Maps and touted as the official trainer of Le Tour de France, comes a Pro-Form training bike so hardcore, it even simulates potholes. Ok, we made that last part up, but it does allow you to feel the burn of 24 pre-set courses, or one of your own punishing design. For the ultra-committed indoor enthusiast, there’s also Intelligent Wind Resistance and a 20 percent incline / decline feature that’ll match the ups and downs of real life outdoor cycling without the hassle of the actual outdoors. Honestly, it’s a bit much and we can’t really see this thing taking off with the New Year’s Eve resolution set, but if you’ve always wanted that biker’s derriere, this is your trainer.

An all natural “supercandy” ups your game with its performance-driven ingredients
snapcandy1.jpg

Recognizing that most people think about candy first and nutrition second, the just-announced line of SNAP Infusion Supercandy seeks to provide snackers with both. Each biodegradable package of candy contains a daily dose of B vitamins, antioxidants and electrolytes delivered via patented “SNAP bead” microcapsules.

There’s no pretense that these are “health” food; the creators wanted to make candy, but candy that was healthier than most. SNAP’s launching with five classic candy varieties: gum, tarts, caramels, gummies and jelly beans. Each is naturally flavored, colored and sweetened. There’s no HFCS and no trans fats. And while they still pack a calorie punch, it’s around half that of most similar treats.

SNAP is the latest project of Andover, MA-based husband and wife team Eric and Andrea Stoll, well-known personalities in the athletic industry. Eric previously worked as the Marketing Director of Finnish running brand Karhu, while Andrea had senior roles at both Converse Sport and Vans. This experience helped them form the concept, marketing strategy, design and packaging for the product.

SNAP will be available in August 2011 for around $2 a pack at sports stores and natural food markets across the USA. It will also be available online at Amazon and the SNAP site.

Quite frankly, you’ve got it just a bit too easy. You rise 98 seconds before you’re scheduled to clock in, you mash a power button, and suddenly, you’re at work. PJs still caked to your legs, mouth still steaming from a lack of brushing. You’re a telecommuter, and you’re the envy of the working world. In fact, it’d be just stellar if you’d do us all a solid and add a sliver of complexity to your workday — you know, like swapping out your OfficeMax special for an elliptical machine. And maybe, just maybe, you can convert your laptop into one that’s pedal-powered, forcing you to keep churning for fear of dropping from the virtual office. And no, you can’t ask for donations to cover the $8,000 price tag — your fuel savings from last week alone should just about cover it. Harrumph.

Listener fatigue: it’s a condition that affects just about everyone who owns a pair of earbuds and one that myriad manufacturers have tried to mitigate with various configurations. According to researchers at Asius Technologies, though, the discomfort you experience after extended periods of earphone listening isn’t caused by faulty design or excessively high volumes, but by “acoustic reflex.” Every time you blast music through earbuds, your ear muscles strain to reduce sound waves by about 50 decibels, encouraging many audiophiles to crank up the volume to even higher, eardrum-rattling levels. To counteract this, Asius has developed something known as the Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens (ADEL) — an inflatable polymer balloon that attaches to the ends of earbuds. According to Asius’ Samuel Gido, the inflated ADEL effectively acts as a “second eardrum,” absorbing sound and redirecting it away from the ear’s most sensitive regions. No word yet on when ADEL may be available for commercial use, but head past the break for a video explanation of the technology, along with the full presser.

A team of researchers at Caltech and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have created a new type of glass that’s stronger than steel, but it might not make it out of your oral surgeon’s office. The material is a combination of glass’ simplest form, called marginal glass, the metal palladium, and small fractions of phosphorus, silicon, germanium, and silver, making it resistant to massive amounts of pressure and strain. A glass this strong has endless potential in the way of structural application — think cars, planes, and bridges. Thing is, though, palladium is super expensive, and researchers involved in the project say the best applications are in products like dental implants, which are currently made of soft, stiff noble metals, more likely to cause complications like bone atrophy. Chances are we won’t see super strong glass bridges anytime soon, but the new glass dental implants could be in your mouth as early as 2016.
