Toothbrush Meets Phone App
Move over Sonicare Toothbrush, The Kolibree Toothbrush is taking over! Now you don’t have to worry about if your kid is brushing their teeth properly or yourself for that matter.
Kolibree’s toothbrush contains a sensor that tracks the areas of your mouth that you’re brushing, and will let you know what sections might need a little more attention. The toothbrush will also measure how often and how long you spend working on your dentures; if you’re being slack in certain areas or sloppy in technique, you’ll get a lower percentage rating. “While Kolibree doesn’t proclaim to solve periodontal disease or suggest it can keep cavities or gingivitis at bay,” the company admits in a press release, “the better you take care of your teeth, the more likely you can and will avoid serious problems.”
Although the corridors of the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino resort are not the most appropriate place to use a toothbrush, we took the opportunity to see the Kolibree hardware for ourselves alongside an early version of the app. Kolibree will launch a Kickstarter campaign this summer, with prices ranging between $99 and $200 for various models.
