Connected toothbrush guides tooth-cleaning with smartphone app

The toothbrush designers hope to launch a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter in the second quarter

  • Using Kolibree's product every brushing is recorded, and the data tells users if they have brushed long enough and cleaned hard-to-reach but important parts of their teeth and gums, according to Kolibree. The more people learn about their brushing habits, the faster they can do something to improve them, the company said. The toothbrush is connected via Bluetooth to a smartphone running Kolibree's app. There will be versions of the app for Apple's iPhones, the iPod Touch and Android-based smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S III and 4, according to Kolibree's website.
