The ever-inventive Scott Amron needs no introduction here (his last concept is as good a place to start as any of his clever designs), so suffice it to say that we're always excited to see him turn up in the ol' inbox.
The Westbury, NY-based designer has set out to revolutionize oral hygiene this time around... or at least put a minty-fresh smile on the faces of anyone who has ever brushed his or her teeth and/or used a drinking fountain: the RinserBrush does both.No disposable cups to buy or throw away. No glass to wash or take up counter space. No changing hands to cup water. And, no more putting your head in the sink. Just aim the fountain where you want the water to be.
Video after the jump:
At $22 a pop, the RinserBrush will put a slight dent in your invisible money clip, but it might just be worth the investment, considering that the handle accepts GreenerStep replacement heads—think of it as the Gillette model for toothbrushes. (At $22 for pop, it's a Father's Day gift that won't arrive until November, but one that's most certainly superior to decades' worth of novelty neckties.)

If you absolutely can't wait to get your hands on a RinserBrush, Amron's also selling the original prototype (presumably the one that stars in the video) for a cool $3,800.
Update (6/14): Commenter Andrew pointed out that "This is not an original concept," though he neglected to mention that the 2007 version is by none other than Amron himself... and that we posted about it. I'd guess that it's gone through a few iterations and this latest model is the one that's going into production. So it goes.
