Useful: The otoscope, which uses bright light and a ‘scope’ to look into patients’ ears.
Not so Useful: The LED Light Ear Pick, which, besides its redundant name (Light Emitting Diode Light Ear Pick), really can’t do much more than a Q-tip and a flashlight. Potentially, you could be in a dark parking lot and in need of a light to spot your car’s keyhole while cleaning your ears.
As a team of physicians, student physicians, and bioengineers, we strongly discourage you from sticking this light emitting seemingly sharp plastic device in your ears. Stick with Super Soakers.
