Have you ever tried to teach your kid the "Bass-Stillman" brushing technique — the technique that dental professionals would try to teach your child if they thought he could handle it?
That's the question asked by Brush Up, a new mobile game with a bluetooth-enabled toothbrush. They purport to be able to train your child to brush his own teeth. They seem to back it up, as they used NIH (National Institute of Health) money to run a year long study.
Interestingly, they hired a developmental psychologist, because apparently you brain handles brushing your teeth differently when you are younger.
Their website has some information, but they seem to have put a lot more effort into their Kickstarter page.
Would you trust your child to bring a tablet/phone into the bathroom as they brush? Do you think you can teach better than a game? Or will parents not ask themselves any of those questions, and just buy it to get their kid to brush his teeth without a fight?
