3D printing, boldly solving problems no one needed solving. What's next? A 3D printed hand that specifically fits my winkus to reduce my self-abuse time to 6 seconds?

Some of the comments in the link are NSFLunch, Work, or really anywhere else. Just an FYI to people like me that don't want to be turned off food for the next week and a half.

I like it, but not for $300. Especially since the dentist gives me a toothbrush every 6 months.

Dammit. While 3D printing is pretty cool, it's stupid applications like this that almost make me want to agree with QA.

/almost

It doesn't do any tongue brushing, so all those people with perfectly cleaned teeth will still have horrendous bad breath.

Can I 3D print a real real long car so that I don't actually have to drive since I will already be there when I get in?

I'm man enough to say that I'd be interested in that.  I am very busy and my time is important you know.

Look, it's performance art. My question is, does it need toothpaste? So how long will you spend rinsing it vs. a regular toothbrush? Will that take up the 114 seconds you "saved'?

For $300 it better do the laundry and cook me dinner too.

People who freak about oral hygiene will give a shiat. I don't even floss. Hell, I don't even brush my teeth every day (though I'd totally lie if asked in person ;))

And I get no cavities and I don't get bad breath even when I smoked tobacco. Genetic lottery, one sibling and I share it, though we've been told that some people who have it lose it post 40 and start developing dental problems. We'll see.

/had teeth more crooked than Nixon tho

Past 40 you start developing everything problems. Delusional people may tell you otherwise, but listen to my Apostrophe wisdom.

I use my 3d printer to make these cool little metallic blocks that can make things out of themselves, that make things out of themselves, that make things out of themselves.....

I want two.
One for home and one for work.

I don't particularly see why it needs to be custom-designed and 3d printed, but it's still a good idea. Just come up with a flexible version in a few sizes and mass produce it.

No thanks, looks like a biatch to clean. Also, you really should brush your gums and tongue.

A few years back I got a really nice "sonic" toothbrush and have really started looking after my teeth. My regret is that I neglected them (though not terribly) back in college. Everything is great now but I could have saved myself a lot of trouble with some added tooth and gum care.

You misspelled "flossing".

You have an issue with 3D printing?
How odd

I was expecting something like the device from Ernest Goes To Jail.

Wake me up when they invent a 3D-printed butt plug that perfectly fits my own rectum.

/definitely wake me up before insertion.
