Kolibree the connected toothbrush keeps an eye on your brushing habits
You’ve heard of an electric toothbrush but how about a connected electric toothbrush? The Kolibree is just that and can keep track of your brushing habits.
For some, especially kids, washing your teeth can be a chore while others pride themselves on a gleaming set of choppers.
Kolibree can turn the boring activity of brushing into an experience that will keep you motivated.
It is a smart toothbrush that can analyse your brushing and display the results on your smartphone.
Simply pair the Kolibree to your mobile device with Bluetooth, download the free iOS or Android app and the information gathered by the toothbrush is at your fingertips.
So what sort of data can the Kolibree connected toothbrush gather?
It can easily tell you what time of the day you’re brushing, how often you brush and how long you’ve brushed.
On top of that it can also work out the coverage of your teeth your brushing achieved.
And by saving all of this information users can see the level of their oral hygiene and set goals to maintain or improve their brushing.
You can even share your results with your friends and, more importantly, with your dentist.
A family can also sync several toothbrushes to the same app so parents can see how well their children are brushing.
The app also has a rewards system that can allocate points to encourage kids to improve their brushing habits.
Without a device like Kolibree it’s hard to tell how well you are brushing and also hard to improve if you don’t have any information to act upon.
Kolibree will be released in the second half of 2014.
