Teeth to Face / Smart toothbrush

Teeth to Face
Teeth to Face

What you miss a lot in long-distance relationships are small everyday experiences, like getting up together, having meals, cuddling on the sofa.
TEETH TO FACE tries to give you back some of that partnership routine, even if you are far apart. Starting and ending the day together by brushing your teeth in realtime – or through daily records – with your partner. It creates an 1:1 reflection of your loved one on a smart mirror while brushing your teeth. It lets you feel like your lover, child or grandparents be right next to you.
The System consists of a smart mirror, an electric toothbrush and a combined element for charging and recording.
