As innovators slap the smart label on everything from batteries for power tools to picture frames, a dentist in Chicago has founded the dental health startup ONVI to launch the world s first video-enabled smart toothbrush.
However creepy it might be to tune into a live feed of your own mouth during a brushing session, the company hopes Prophix helps people track missed spots and attend to problem areas.
With nearly 35 years of dental experience under his belt, ONVI founder and Chicago native Dr. Craig Kohler remains one of a small group of dentists who turn to live video during procedures.
With today s advancements in technology, it is finally possible to bring this never-before-seen dental solution into the home with Prophix.
In addition to a live video feed, the toothbrush also allows users to take snapshots during brushing sessions in order to help them track their daily sessions.
Adopters of this innovative new toothbrush not only receive the camera-touting toothbrush and companion application, but also three additional interchangeable attachments outside of the standard rotating head.
