The way in which we do simple everyday things is constantly changing and evolving. Some cars have the ability to parallel park themselves with the push of a button, and you can also remotely control most of the features of your home (security, temperature, lighting, etc.) with your smartphone. Now your smartphone will be able to help you have more fun while making your teeth and gums cleaner.
A Japanese company has created something “Dubbed G.U.M Play, it’s a small device that fits on any toothbrush. It syncs with an app, available on both Android and iOS devices, to turn your brush into a game controller or a news reader. The first application, Mouth Monster, has you defending a candyland inside your mouth from invading bacteria. The invaders are dispatched by brushing at a steady beat in key zones around the gum line. G.U.M Play is also fitted with sensors that monitor the speed at which you brush as well as the angle and zone of the mouth. Based on the information it mines, it’ll give instructions on how to better clean your pearly whites and gums.”
When you combine making your mouth healthier with technology and are able to do it in a fun way (especially for kids) there is a greater likelihood of them maintaining these habits for the long term.
