Is that Bluetooth in your mouth? Kolibree's connected toothbrush.

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Is that Bluetooth in your mouth?    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Kolibree was first announced a couple of years ago and it sounded pretty wacky then.   A toothbrush that connects to smart phones using an app.   Well,  Kolibree isn’t alone in thinking it is a good idea.  Oral B makes a connected brush too.   What makes Kolibree unique?  It is very lightweight.  Suitable for children.   And says Executive VP Christophe Dissaux…

“We are the only toothbrush equipped with 3D motion sensors.  Basically it means that we are able to locate the toothbrush in your mouth and are able to give you instant feedback of the areas of your mouth that have been properly brushed, over-brushed or neglected.”

Kolibree, spelled K O L I B R E E, can make a game out of it for the kids too through the smartphone connection.   The price…about two hundred dollars….but you may be able to find it discounted online.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
