Now You Can See The Live Video Feed of Your Mouth While Brushing With This Prophix Smart Toothbrush
From now on, you can start your day by watching your mouth. Well, I am not joking. A new Bluetooth-enabled toothbrush comes with a miniature camera that will show you a live stream on the inside of your mouth while you’re brushing.
Named Prophix, this smart brush is created by dentist and entrepreneur Dr. Craig S. Kohler and comes with a built-in HD camera able to shoot 1080p video and 10MP photos. His company, ONVI started taking preorders for this toothbrush.
The built-in camera and light will let the users clean the hard-to-reach back teeth and molars to see the gum condition. You can see the pictures and live videos on your smartphone through a compatible app. The kit also comes with a prophy cup to help you contour cleaning around the tooth and under the gumline, and a rubber tip to massage your gum.
“You can see it live,” said Kohler. “You’re able to take photos of the different spots you might be interested in keeping track of, keep them in an album, and see if gum tissue changes color or look at a particular filling that you have questions about.”
Surprisingly, none of these abilities will come cheap. The company is asking a whopping $399 for the Prophix smart toothbrush, which is roughly double than Proctor & Gamble’s Oral-B Genius. But Kohler claims that it will eventually save money by preventing costly dental operations.
The toothbrush is scheduled to ship in the first quarter of 2017 but is available for preorder. You can get it at a discounted price of $299 by preordering from their website.
