(LAS VEGAS) — At the Consumer Electronics Expo in Las Vegas, companies are unveiling bleeding edge technology — and one presenter’s product might even prevent your gums from bleeding.
A French-based company called Kolibree says it wants to reinvent oral care thanks to its Internet-connected toothbrush. The device will wirelessly download a user’s brushing habits right to their computer, phone, or tablet, in an effort to improve oral hygiene.
Kolibree’s brushes — which will cost anywhere from $99 to $200, depending on the model when they hit stores later in the year — will someday be linked to games and other apps to incentivize brushers to keeping their pearly whites their brightest.
