Using tech in a toothbrush can pay off

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, June 8, 2016

Using tech in a toothbrush can pay off.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     A company called Grush has come away with the top million dollar prize in the TBS program America’s Greatest Makers.   Among the judges was the CEO of Intel.   So what exactly did Grush make?   A connected toothbrush that works with an app…to make brushing fun for kids…and says co-founder Ethan Schur, more thorough….

“The brush connects wirelessly to a mobile device, it has a game that’s both fun and interactive.  So when the child’s brushing his teeth, when he moves the brush left, the virtual brush in the game goes left.  And so there’s burger monsters and pizza monsters, they guide his brushing, and he’s playing a game while brushing them away.”

The toothbrush is available for pre-order…for about sixty dollars…at GrushGamer.com.   It is scheduled to ship early next year.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
