There is a new children’s toothbrush on the market which uses augemented reality. French company Kolibree announced at CES 2018 a smart device that uses augmented reality (AR). This makes brushing teeth fun for kids. The device is paired with a motion-tracking app that uses your smartphone’s camera. It comes with a phone stand, so you don’t have to worry about holding up a phone while they brush. Check out the video. Turning Toothbrushing Into a Fun & Educative Game.

Some of the games include Go Pirate!, Rabids Smart Brush and an Archeology game. There is also a Smart Brushing Guide: During the game, the Kolibree Smart Guide shows the areas to brush in real-time. When children brush properly and regularly, they earn more coins which allows to progress in the game. During the initial game levels the Smart Guide divides the mouth in 8 zones, while later in the game young players are introduced to 16 key areas.
Magik will launch soon for under $30. That is more than your average toothbrush, but you get the brush, the game and the stand. Also, a much happier child for that price.
