Oral-B electric toothbrush with Bluetooth connectivity

From: http://connectedtoothbrush.com/ 

Yes, really ...

"The new Oral-B interactive electric toothbrush with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and the Oral-B App is now available in limited quantities in Germany and the UK, with a US and global rollout launching as of October 2014."

"Programs Personal Brush Settings: You can use your smartphone as a “remote control” to customize your brush to your needs, including setting your target session length and selecting your preferred modes. It tells you if you’re brushing too hard, if you’ve brushed long enough and even if your brushing habits have improved."

"Utilizes Two-Way Communication: 
Not only does the app receive brushing data and report it back to you, but you can also program the app so that it communicates with the brush for personalized brushing."

Now I know what to get Uncle Fred for Christmas.

PS  The toothbrush is coloured blue.

No, but there is an optional interactive bathroom mirror.

But wait, there's more:

Features & Benefits of the Oral-B App:

Two-Way Communication: The app reports data from the brush and can be used to program the brush for personalized routines.

Expert Guidance with Focused Care: Working hand-in-hand with a dental professional, patients’ brushing routines can be reviewed and programmed in the app to help improve behaviors and focus on problem zones within the mouth.

Personalized Brush Programs: Use a smartphone as a “remote control” to customize the brush settings, including session length and selecting preferred modes.

Stores Data: Because it’s not always convenient to have a smartphone in the bathroom, the brush can store up to 20 brushing sessions, synching the data and updating records the next time the app is connected to the toothbrush.

Fosters Better Brushing Habits: The app and interactive electric toothbrush help drive patient compliance, which determines a large part of the success of dental appointments.

Helps Achieve The Recommended Two Minute Session: With news, weather, calendars, videos, achievement badges and of course, oral care tips, two minutes twice a day will fly by.
