Of all the “smart” things on the market, who would have thought your toothbrush would be next?
A French company has revealed the very first Internet-connected toothbrush during a presentation at the International Consumer Electronics Show, according to the Washington Business Journal. The Koilbree Toothbrush will work by syncing the brush to your smartphone.
"It works just like a regular toothbrush," said Kolibree spokesperson Renee Blodgett in a phone interview. "The only difference is that all the data is stored on your phone so you can see how you're brushing."
According to CNN, this toothbrush and app will turn a necessary daily activity into a sort of game, especially for children, who are tough when it comes to brushing.
It will track, and rate, your brushing habits as well as tell you whether you have brushed thoroughly or not. The Koilbree will cost somewhere between $99 and $200.
It also interacts with your social network and makes it possible to even share with your dentist.
Though it is not the first “smart” toothbrush, it will be the first to track movements in your mouth, record times and connect to social networks.
