Isn't that everybody's wet dream: Having every single electronic device in your household, from your bathroom scale twittering your weight over to your washing machine posting on facebook, connected to a huge data cloud within the realm of wifi just around your home, accessible from anywhere around the globe, anytime?
Samsung thinks yes!

No way. chuckle.gif I read where they have developed an internet toothbrush wtf2.gif

Quote:Brush smarter. That's the message from the makers of what is billed as the world's first Internet-connected toothbrush.

Unveiled Sunday at a preview event for the Consumer Electronics Show, the device from French-based startup Kolibree aims "to reinvent oral care," according to co-founder Loic Cessot.

"The technology in the industry has not evolved for years," Cessot told AFP.

"The idea is not to brush stronger, but smarter."

The Kolibree toothbrush includes a sensor which detects how much tartar is being removed in a brushing. It also records brushing activity so users can maintain a consistent cleaning each time.

The device conveys the information wirelessly to a smartphone app -- a particularly useful aid for parents who want to monitor the teeth cleaning efforts of small children, according to Cessot.

Can't wait for USB toilet paper and tampons, life will be complete at that point and the Toilet Safety Administration will know what you pooped last summer. 15.gif
