Is your toothbrush smarter than you? It soon may be if a new product catches on. The beam toothbrush tracks your brushing activity and sends the information to an app on your iphone or other device. The app allows you to observe your brushing habits and set goals to improve your brushing skills. It will also tell you when you need a new brush. Parents can use it to check up on how well their kids are cleaning their teeth. You can also send the information directly to your dentist although it is unclear whether your dentist really needs or wants to know.
