iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

Today, the spread of AIDS is still a danger. This toothbrush is designed to incorporate a saliva test for AIDS; the head changes color indicating whether a person may be infected with HIV. This toothbrush gives people an early warning of AIDS, thereby effectively helping to reduce the spread of this terrible disease. The main material of the toothbrush is bamboo, and a material-saving modeling design is adopted to save costs and reduce environmental pollution.

This is a brilliant idea that could actually be produced commercially immediately.
Jury-Statement
