Anyone tried using the VegiBee?

As if I have extra time I was browsing Territorial Seed Co. and found this "VegiBee". It is a devise that extracts pollen from flowers. It sounds like it would be best used on the Solanaceae family, but may be of interest for fruit plant pollination as well.

Any one try this or have opinions?

Neat business idea, but obviously a repurposed toothbrush design. I know people use electric toothbrushes, so that makes sense.

I never considered helping the bees except when I wanted to save vegetable seeds. I have an old electric toothbrush so now it will be repurposed. Thanks for the link.
