Brushing teeth by remote control

System guides toothbrush.

CrunchGear

We're not ashamed to admit that we like toothbrushes here at Crave, as well as anything else that promotes oral hygiene . (Note to co-workers: You know who you are.)

So nothing delights us more than an opportunity to combine technology with our favorite OCD subject. The new "Oral-B Triumph with SmartGuide" is kind of like a remote-controlled cleaning system for the mouth. Using a "sink-top LCD display that wirelessly guides your brushing," according to CrunchGear, "it clocks you to make sure you are moving your bristles long enough and makes sure you get each 'quadrant' of your mouth equally clean."

We never thought of the mouth divided into quadrants, but if it helps prevent halitosis, we're all for it. And don't forget to floss.
