Kolibree, The World’s First Connected Electric Toothbrush Shows Working Prototype at Mobile World Congress in Europe

Kolibree, a company dedicated to innovative solutions to keep you healthy and smart, showed their first working prototype at the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain this week.

Mobile World Congress marks the first time the award-winning electric connected toothbrush has been demonstrated publicly in Europe and only the second time at a public conference, the first being their initial unveiling at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics (CES) show in Las Vegas in January.

Named best of CES 2014 for Home by Digital Trends, Kolibree has garnered international interest from hundreds of global media and bloggers around the globe and has already appeared on The Today Show, CNN, BBC and in Le Monde, Engadget, Mashable and countless others.

Kolibree’s smart toothbrush has a unique technology that analyzes your brushing habits and displays them on a mobile dashboard you can quickly access from your phone. Through Kolibree’s free mobile app, you’ll be able to view data about every brushing via Bluetooth. Kolibree’s smart sensors will tell you whether you have brushed long enough and reached the hard-to-reach but important parts of your teeth and gums.

With the Kolibree connected toothbrush and mobile app, you can take control of your health and teeth with easy-to-understand monitoring and scoring, which you can share with your family and dentist or keep private.

Because Kolibree deliberately chose Sonic technology for its less abrasive and gentler approach on the gums, the connected toothbrush is ideal for families. Kolibree is so lightweight and gentle that it is suitable for kids. The app works with several toothbrushes so the entire family can participate and Kolibree rewards your progress and cheers you on when you are improving, allocating points to kids to encourage them to improve their brushing habits.

The brushing data will also be anonymously available via an API to let 3rd party developers, oral care professionals or researchers who wish to develop their own apps on top of the Kolibree platform. Because Kolibree works with Bluetooth 3.0, it supports any Bluetooth-enabled smartphone and tablets on the market making it widely available to more users.

Consumers can begin to place worldwide pre-orders for the Kolibree toothbrush within the next 45 days and the price of Kolibree will range from $99 to $200 depending on the model and will include the free mobile app.
