So Is It Bluetooth, Or Blueteeth?
Wow! What will they think of next!?! Meet "Kolibree", the "world's first connected toothbrush". Announced this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Kolibree is able to provide users with details on their brushing habits, helping them to improve their overall dental health. The Kolibree uses Bluetooth to connect to an iPhone, automatically synchronizing data each time the toothbrush is used. A built-in sensor measures the amount of time that a user spends brushing and whether hard to reach areas were properly cleaned. Do we really need this? I guess I can see it helping teach kids how to brush properly, but how many other "personal products" can we connect to apps via Bluetooth to monitor ourselves. Bluetooth razors? Bluetooth hairbrushes? How about Bluetooth toilet paper? OK that's way out there, but who knows? Get more info on the Kolibree here.
