Video-enabled Toothbrush

Posted June 13, 2016

1-device8It’s not always possible to see just how well – you’ve cleaned your teeth, until ONVI’s Prophix introduced its video-enabled toothbrush. It has a built-in video camera that lets you see every last nook and cranny of your mouth. From now on the users will have ability see the condition of their teeth to understand better their oral health.

A built-in camera capable of capturing 1080p video that allows users to watch a live feed of their brushing via the app and see if they are missing any spots. It pairs with an accompanying iOS app via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. It’s also able to capture 10-megapixel photos that can be saved as to track the condition of areas of interest in the mouth over time. An Android version of the app is in development. The toothbrush itself is powered by a lithium-ion battery.

There are four interchangeable attachments provided with the Prophix, including a rotating brush-head and a prophy cup, which is used for contour cleaning around the tooth and under the gum line. There’s also a mirror to help users view and capture hard-to-reach places, and a rubber tip for massaging gums and removing plaque and tartar.

The Prophix is available for pre-order at a discounted price of $299 and is scheduled to ship in the first quarter of next year.
