My 10 yrs old toothbrush

In the fall of 1999, I brought an electric toothbrush. I paid about $80 for it...I thought it was a little too much for a toothbrush, but I was young at that time ;-). It was a Braun product & I use it till date. I did not think much about it...it just sat on my bathroom sink. While looking at this video & listening to Dieter Ram talk about design, I realized how deeply embedded are the notion of design in that product.

For a technology product to last that long & be so integrated in your life that you don't even think about is probably the ultimate milestone of good design. It never ceases to amaze me how deeply some people think about these things. Thank You Mr. Ram, for making things around us usable, useful & integral.
