As someone who is obsessed with teeth care (seriously, I have floss in my car), I'm always looking for something that will better clean my teeth. But even I have an attention problem when it comes to brushing for a specific amount of time (at least two minutes is best), which is why I really want Kolibree's smart toothbrush, which is currently killing it at CES in Las Vegas.

“Making sure that all teeth are properly brushed is critical. Kolibree might very well be the next evolutionary step in dental prevention that clinicians, who have patients that need to improve oral hygiene, have been waiting for,” says Dr. Holly Hasegawa, DDS, MS (Seattle, WA).

Calling it the "world's first connected electric toothbrush," Kolibree's brush analyzes your brushing habits and shows them to you on the corresponding app. It lets you know if you brushed for long enough and if you got all those nooks and crannies you need to get to keep plaque away.

With a scoring system, you can use it as a daily game, something to keep you in check. Several people can have a profile on the same app, which means that an entire family can do it together. It even gives kids points when they do well, which encourages them to keep up a healthy routine. The battery should last you a week without having to recharge. When it's time, all you do is sit the brush on its powerbase, which attaches via magnet.

Kolibree works with the iPhone 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, the iPod Touch 5, Samsung Galaxy III and S4, and more devices are expected soon. The brush will be available for pre-order through Kickstarter later in the year, priced between $99 and $199, and shipped worldwide from France. Replacement heads will also be available for around $18 for a pack of three.

Great works Kolibree! Is the brush pad waterproof? Does the iPhone need to be placed closely to the device in order for the app function, would it ever a water droplets on the iPhone screen?
