Humans are creatures of habit and devices like the Oral Care Motivator are helpful tools for influencing behaviors and initiating new routines. One might engage in the practice of brushing his teeth each morning, but forget to do so before bed. Flossing too becomes a bit of a chore that many people put off for a rainy day.
Christopher Santos’ concept is for a toothbrush holder that keeps you in line with your oral hygiene. A digital clock in the base can be set to alarm throughout the day when you’ve decided that you should be cleaning your teeth. This function can even be linked to a smartphone app.
The automatic dental floss dispenser is also quite clever. Once the Oral Care Motivator senses that you’ve set your toothbrush in its hole, a flashing light reminds you to floss and buttons supply you with a length of string.
