The Playbrush, A Device That Turns a Toothbrush Into a Gaming Controller to Make Brushing Teeth Fun

The Playbrush is a new device that attaches to a toothbrush to turn the simple hygiene apparatus into a gaming controller to make brushing teeth fun. The small gadget simply slides onto the blunt end of a toothbrush, and uses sensors to detect motion as well as Bluetooth to pair the tool with a smartphone or tablet. Once connected, the Playbrush is used to control an on-screen game that encourages the user to brush in specific ways to completely clean their teeth.

The Playbrush is currently raising funds with a Kickstarter campaign.
