Thanko is certainly getting desperate for new products to plug into the ubiquitous USB port; unfortunately, the gadgeteers from Far East still hasn’t run out of ideas. This what appears to be a hairbrush from a local dollar store in fact has a built-in ultrasonic humidifier. It is actually quite convenient when you can comb and moisturize your hair at the same time.

The humidifier itself has a water capacity of 15ml which is enough for about 30 minutes of continuous spraying while the battery – rechargeable via micro USB – lasts for approximately 2.5 hours. The hairbrush is also said to be ideal for pet grooming. When the Thanko ships later this month, it will cost you 2980 Yen or $36 USD. For those who are unfamiliar with Thanko, they have an impressive arsenal of offbeat USB gadgetry ranging from a butt cooler to eye warmer and soldering iron.
