A new product, called GlareSmile, aimed speeding up toothbrushing. It is currently the subject of a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, the unusual electric toothbrush is promised to clean teeth in as little as 10 seconds.
What makes the GlareSmile unique, that it uses three brushes rather than one. It provides an “automatic” brushing experience, with the user moving it around the mouth, while the triple brush scrubs the base and side surfaces of the teeth.
The brush features a 1.77-in touchscreen which let users pick between three different modes:
- manual setting that allows for speed and pressure adjustments,
- a sensitive teeth mode that cleans more gently and at a lower speed,
- a setting designed specifically for cleaning gums.
The brush is suitable for ages five and up, it could really be useful is for children, disabled users, and the elderly, who either haven’t learned proper brushing technique, or have decreased mobility in their hands.
The device charges via USB, and there’s also a solar charger available as an optional extra. The heads can be changed, giving ability to use one unit by several people, and there is a charging dock with spaces to hold those extra heads.
With the companion app there is possibility to keep track of brushing time, the amount of pressure applied and more.
As it is a crowdfunding product, and with a pledge of $99 to the campaign, you can get one, assuming everything goes to plan. An estimated shipment is in December of 2016.
