Big Rethink2012: XiuSolutions – Smart Mirror/ Toothbush

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Yesterday we were delighted to be invited along to The Economist’s Big Rethink conference where big ideas flowed as freely as the complementary coffee. One slide that particularly piqued my interest came from futurologist Anne Lise Kjaer who talked about technology’s role to improve our lives through very practical ways. This Smart Mirror/Toothbrush links up the motion of your brushing with a 3D animation to show which bits of your mouth you’ve dealt with properly. It’s a couple of years old and the video is a bit cheesy but the product at the heart of it is really intriguing.
