We ask for Innovation – now we got it! Smare toothbrush!

 

In 2013’s Her, retro teddy bear Theodore Twombly falls in love with an artificial intelligenceArtificial Intelligence knows many different definitions, but in general it can be defined as a machine completing complex tasks intelligently, meaning that it mirrors human intelligence and evolves with time. that lives in his ear. At CES in 2017, tech company Kolibree is asking, “what if you fell in love with your toothbrush instead?

”Well, sort of. The company has unveiled its latest product, the Ara, which it claims is the “first toothbrush with embedded .”

This doesn’t mean, of course, that some sultry-voiced operating system will whisper sweet nothings to you while you’re brushing your teeth (they’d be pretty muffled anyway), but a bunch of sensors in the brush will monitor how long you use it each day and which areas of your mouth you you hit. This data will be analyzed in the toothbrush itself by Kolibree’s “patented algorithmsAn algorithm is a fixed set of instructions for a computer. It can be very simple like "as long as the incoming number is smaller than 10, print "Hello World!". It can also be very complicated such as the algorithms behind self-driving cars.,” and recommendations on how to up your brushing game will be sent to your phone or emailed to you once a week. Functionally, it’s nearly identical to Kolibree’s first smart toothbrush introduced in 2014 .

So, yeah, this isn’t really , but more you-missed-a-spot for dental hygiene.

Still, putting the computing components in the toothbrush itself is neat, and the Ara also comes with mobile games (yes, games you play by brushing your teeth) that could encourage children to learn good habits earlier in life. The Ara is available to preorder now for a temporary price of $80 and will cost $130 when it goes on sale and ships this March. Who knows, you might even fall in love with it.
