Keep Cavities Away With The ‘World’s First Connected Toothbrush’
By John Yong, 06 Jan 2014
Say goodbye to gingivitis and cavities with ‘Kolibree’, the “world’s first connected toothbrush”.
Announced yesterday at the ‘2014 International CES show’ in Las Vegas, the Kolibree is able to provide users with details on their brushing habits, helping them to improve their overall dental health.
The toothbrush can be connected to an app via Bluetooth, and each brush stroke is digitally recorded. By accessing the app, it tells users if they have brushed long enough, or if they have missed out brushing certain areas in their mouths.
The app even allows several toothbrushes to be synced to it, allowing the entire family to track their brushing habits.
“It’s like a FitBit for your teeth,” a company spokesperson said to Mashable. “The more you know about the health, the smarter you can be about how to approach it. The same should apply to dental care and oral care hasn’t been updated in years.”
The Kolibree is expected to be released in the third quarter of 2014.
