The Playbrush is a wonderfully innovative dental hygiene system, available in the American, Canadian and the European markets, that is designed to gamify the boring act of brushing teeth so that children can enjoy it and improve their oral hygiene habits and overall dental health.

Available for $51, the Playbrush is attached to the handle of any regular toothbrush. Once it is activated, the Playbrush system essentially converts the toothbrush into a game controller that can be used to control characters in various smartphone and tablet games.

Ultimately, the Playbrush proves that gamification can certainly be applied to the personal hygiene and health realms with great effects. In this case, the system combines the act of brushing your teeth with the enjoyment and fun of mobile games, making for a fun and healthy cocktail.
