The Playful Toothbrush Game

Here’s a computer game that would probably help your child save on future trips to any cosmetic dentists or emergency dentist: a software game that would encourage your kids to brush their teeth. Playful Toothbrush is the product of scientists at Taiwan University and aims to help parents and dentists to get children to brush their teeth effectively.

The game is similar to games on the Nintendo Wii. LED modules are mounted on one end of the toothbrush and a web camera can on a bathroom mirror to track the movement. The information is then transmitted to a computer to create the game. The game play involves some colored teeth which then becomes white when the brush moves over the teeth.
