Toothbrush Informs Your Of Your Brushing Habits Via Bluetooth

By David Ponce

Since accelerometer chips have become ubiquitous, we are finding them just about everywhere from cellphones to fitness tracking devices (like the Fitbit) and now you can add the Beam Brush to the list. We’re finding the idea behind this one rather interesting. The device will connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth and inform you of when and for how long you brushed. Perhaps the idea is to shame you in having better dental hygiene or to simply help you maintain your already good habits. The associated app will give you rewards for keeping your goals and even generate little graphs with your brushing history. The brush itself is not motorized. And despite it being pictured in awful CG rendering, the Beam Brush should be on the market next month for $50 with replaceable heads at $3 a pop.
