Unveiled on Sunday at a preview event for the Consumer Electronics Show, the device from French-based startup Kolibree aims “to reinvent oral care,” according to co-founder Loic Cessot.
“The technology in the industry has not evolved for years,” Cessot told AFP.
“The idea is not to brush stronger, but smarter.”
Smart ToothBrush – The Smarter way for healthy teeth
This Kolibree Smart toothbrush is smart enough to help you brush your teeth in a smarter way. It comes with an inbuilt sensor which will report you about how much tartar you got rid of while brushing. It also helps you record your brushing activity which keeps the consistency in every time cleaning.
The device sensors transfer the recorded data to the smartphone app wirelessly, thus it can be usedby parents to monitor their child brushing activity.
When you use a normal toothbrush you never really know what you’ve cleaned. It might be 30 percent. The only person who really knows is the dentist.But the app can tell users if they have missed hard-to-clean areas or are not getting a thorough brushing. The app, which is open for developers to add on other programs, aims to increase motivation and make the experience more fun, – Cessot.
This smart toothbrush – a project by Cessot and former Microsoft and Google executive Thomas Serval have plans about launching this smart toothbrush worldwide around the third quarter this year. It still has to time in the launch and the developers may bo working on finishing the product in a better way.
Initially the orders can only be made via Kickstarter and the price for this smart toothbrush ranges from $99 to $200. It comes in different model depending on the different age group who would be using it and may also vary of the type of smart toothbrush. All these will include a free mobile app.
You all have been so far smarter in choosing your other gadgets, and I guess its time for us to act smarter while choosing the smart toothbrush as well. Have a healthy teeth and a bright smile 🙂 .
