Twist&Brush complicates an easy chore
Imagine a beautiful old steel fountain pen, with its twist-to-suck pump that slurps in ink. Now imagine that instead of twisting the reservoir to fill the pen, you turn it in the other direction and force ink to seep out through the nib.
Now imagine that instead of ink, you are squeezing out toothpaste, and instead of a pen, you have a toothbrush. Finally, swap the metal for plastic and you have Kawamura Ganjavian’s Twist&Brush, a toothbrush with its own supply of toothpaste.
It’s made for travel. You fill it — probably quite messily — from a regular toothpaste tube and you’re ready to go. Twist the knob to deliver a dose of minty paste to the bristles and brush.
Because, you know, it’s so hard to carry the two separately. And while the cap may untwist from a tube of toothpaste and soil your luggage, this contraption may also twist and pump out a sticky mess into your suitcase, so you’ll still need a toiletry bag to keep it in.
Still, it looks neat, which is probably enough to make many people want one. Sadly, it is a one-off concept design, but it has given me an idea. Why not take the hollow head of this brush and cut a thread into its neck? Then you could just screw it onto the top of any toothpaste tube. Easier, and a lot less messy.
