Toothbrush Alarm / Health Appliance

Toothbrush Alarm
Toothbrush Alarm

TOOTHBRUSH ALARM uses the consumption of toothpaste capacity to indicate the suggested healthiest life span of a toothbrush. This concept is based on the co-existing user’s experience of toothbrushes and toothpastes. Providing the hint that as each of the toothbrush patterns on the toothpaste package fades out, it acts as an alarm for the users to know it’s time to change their toothbrush. This regular act of refreshing toothbrushes brings along a brighter smile and a healthier life style! The value of this innovative design can be applied to package design of a series of household products that features the co-existing idea.
