SMART TOOTHBRUSH FOR smiles
Redesign the toothbrush to influence behavior change in kids.
SAM'S ROLE: Interaction & Service Designer
PROBLEM & OPPORTUNITY
One in three kids in Asia suffer from cavities.
What will make kids want to brush their teeth regularly, instead of viewing it as a chore?
A digital character in a physical form factor of a toothbrush simulates the rapid decay or quick recovery in oral hygiene.
When the kid brushes twice a day, the character is happy and dances with its healthy teeth. If the child forgot to brush their teeth, the character cries and looses its teeth.
